Historic night for Wisconsin wrestling

In case you missed it last night, sophomore Andrew Howe capped off a perfect season with a national championship at 165 lbs. He finished the year with a 37-0 record to become the fourth wrestler in UW history to go undefeated.

In addition, the team finished fourth which ties for the best finish at the NCAAs in school history. They also did it in 1976 and 1978.

Lastly, head coach Barry Davis was honored as the NWCA National Coach of the Year.

Read all about it in our Session VI Recap.

After the event was over, the team convened at a local restaurant with lots of family, friends and UW supporters to celebrate one of the best seasons in Wisconsin wrestling history.

We're on our way back to Madison now. We left Omaha at about 8:15 this morning. The bus has satellite TV so hoping it'll work for us to watch some basketball later in the day. As for now, we're watching Twilight. Nope, not a typo.

All three coaches' wives are on the bus and they won out in the movie selection. Coach Davis said it was a reward for them for all they put up with during the season. I'm thinking this is going to be time for the guys to get some sleep after a big night.
