UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - The fifth-ranked Penn State wrestling team's home wrestling dual with rival Pittsburgh on Jan. 21 has had its start time moved to 6 p.m. The time change will now allow the Big Ten Network to air the much-anticipated wrestling dual live to over 70 million homes nationwide.
Penn State and Pittsburgh have a long and storied wrestling rivalry. The two teams have met 65 times with Penn State owning a 50-12-3 advantage in the series, but the teams wrestled to a 19-19 tie last year in Pittsburgh. This year's dual will feature a number of anticipated match-ups of ranked opponents and is also Penn State's final non-conference dual meet.
The Nittany Lions, 5-0 this year under the guidance of head coach Cael Sanderson, return to action this Sunday when Lock Haven comes to town for a 2 p.m. dual. Fans wishing to purchase single dual meet tickets for the LHU dual or the upcoming nationally televised Pitt dual can place their orders by calling 814-865-5555 or by visiting the Bryce Jordan Center ticket office. The box office is open Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Ticket pricing is $8 for adults and $5 for youth, and there will be a limit of eight tickets per order. Group sales are also available. The 2010-11 Penn State wrestling season is presented by the Family Clothesline. All Penn State events will once again air live on Forever Broadcasting's WRSC (1390 AM) and WSQV (92.1 FM).
