Bertolino and No. 6 ISU Upend No. 2 Nebraska, 22-12
AMES, Iowa – Iowa State 197-pound wrestler David Bertolino brought a frantic Hilton Coliseum crowd of 3,330 fans to their feet with a dramatic 7-6 tie-breaker upset of No. 6 Craig Brester of Nebraska and Nick Gallick pinned Mike Rowe at 141 pounds to lead the sixth-rated Cyclones to a 22-12 win over the No. 2 Huskers Sunday. Iowa State finished the season with a 16-4 dual record and a 3-1 mark against Big 12 opposition. A Nebraska win Sunday would have marked the first time in the 98-year history of its wrestling program that the Huskers had swept its conference opponents in dual action. Instead, the Huskers finish the season at 14-3 overall and 3-1 in Big 12 action. The Cyclones will now prepare for the Big 12 Championships March 8 in Stillwater, Okla.
