UW returns eight of 10 starters from last year’s squad, including NCAA qualifiers Tyler Graff, Jackson Hein and Connor Medbery.

Wisconsin will host the 2014 Big Ten Wrestling Championships on March 8-9 in the Kohl Center. It is the sixth time the Badgers have hosted the championship event and the first time in the Kohl Center.

Tickets to the two-day event will be available at UWBadgers.com starting on Nov. 12.

Senior Tyler Graff’s .829 winning percentage (97-20) is 10th on the UW career list. He is also 16 wins away from earning a spot on the career win record list, as Andy Rein ranks 10th with 113 career victories.
