Cael's road to another Big Ten Tournament title starts this morning in Iowa City, Iowa. Talk about it here with us.

Like that, but with more pinning.

Session one of the Big Ten tourney starts at 11 am EST (10 am local time) at Carver Hawkeye Arena on the University of Iowa campus. It should be a doozy, as Penn State goes after the fifth tournament title in six years (OSU and Iowa shared the title last year) having tied with the Hawkeyes for the dual meet title this season. The Lions were the sole team in the nation to remain undefeated on the season after the NCAA Dual Meet Championships, which saw them handily defeat Oklahoma State while Iowa lost to NC State.

Starting this morning and continuing tonight into Session Two are the preliminary, quarterfinal, semifinal and wrestleback matches. Tomorrow at one is Session Three, and Session Four (the Championship rounds) start at four tomorrow.
