Penn State's Morgan McIntosh was not going to lose.

Not on this day -- when the coach who so desperately sought him was a decision away from clinching his first-ever victory over the Hawkeyes.

McIntosh rolled through and turned Iowa's Grant Gambrall for a 4-3, sudden-victory thriller Sunday afternoon at Rec Hall, giving Penn State an insurmountable, 19-12 lead heading into the final bout.

The Nittany Lions won seven of ten bouts for a 22-12 victory.

After losing the first three matches, the Nittany Lions rolled six straight victories, including Ed Ruth's major decision at 174 pounds. When Cameron Wade finished off Bobby Telford, 4-0, at 285 pounds, he sealed Penn State's first dual victory over Iowa since 2007. It also marks the first time since 2006 that Iowa has lost two consecutive duals. will post more details shortly.
