IOWA CITY, IA – Hawkeye wrestler Luke Eustice has been named co-Big Ten Wrestler of the Week. Eustice, a senior from Blue Earth, MN, wrestles at 125 pounds for Iowa. He was honored for sparking the Hawkeyes to wins over Penn State and Michigan State last weekend with his 10-6 win over Nittany Lion Adam Smith and his 24-10 victory over Spartan Craig Trombly. Eustice is ranked second in the nation with an overall record of 18-1 and an undefeated dual mark of 10-0. He shares the honor with Purdue’s Brad Harper (157 pounds).

Eustice and the Hawkeyes are idle this week. They resume competition with a Big Ten road trip to Wisconsin (Feb. 13) and Minnesota (Feb. 15).
