My name is Allison and I am the communications contact for the Wisconsin wrestling program. We are live here today from the Sports Pavilion in Minneapolis, Minn.

Allison Metcalf: 
The team arrived in the Twin Cities around 5 p.m. last night ready to go. We stayed in a hotel that is right in the heart of the campus near all of the facilities, so the team has had the chance to take in Gophertown for nearly 24 hours.

Is Brandovold wrestling today?
Sunday January 30, 2011 1:45 Guest

Allison Metcalf: 
He was warming up with our other 197-pounder, Derrick Borlie this morning---but I haven't received any official lineups yet
Sunday January 30, 2011 1:46 Allison Metcalf
1:46
Allison Metcalf: 

There are several Minnesota youth teams here today, so the Pavilion started filling up at 1 p.m. When we arrived to the SP at 12:45 p.m., a line was already circulating outside---so it should be a good crowd here today!
Sunday January 30, 2011 1:46 Allison Metcalf
1:48
Allison Metcalf: 
We have several guys on our squad from Minnesota, so hopefully there will be a good presence of Wisconsin fans in the crowd. In fact, junior Travis Rutt (184 lbs.)'s parents were stopped at the same intersection as us on the way over and our bus driver honked at them.
Sunday January 30, 2011 1:48 Allison Metcalf
1:48
Allison Metcalf: 
Alright----these are the closest projected lineups that I have so far....it looks like the only questionable weight class for Wisconsin is at 197 lbs.
Sunday January 30, 2011 1:48 Allison Metcalf

Allison Metcalf: 

Today's projected matchups are:
125 - #5 Zach Sanders (Minn.) v. Tom Kelliher (WIS)
133 - David Thorn (Minn.) v. #3 Tyler Graff (WIS)
141 - #2 Mike Thorn (Minn.) v. Shane McQuade (WIS)

Aside from Wisconsin's Travis Rutt, other Minnesota Badgers that are projected to wrestle today are Tom Kelliher (125 lbs., Burnsville, Minn.) and possibly Ben Cox (165 lbs., Minnetonka, Minn.).

Our wrestling team hopes to continue the border battle success that our women's hockey team already achieved on Friday and Saturday. The #1-ranked Wisconsin women's hockey squad tied Minnesota on Friday night and defeated the Gophers, 3-1, in front of a NCAA-record 10,668 fans last night at the Kohl Center in Madison.
