Minnesota Unveils Full 2023-24 Schedule

MINNEAPOLIS – The University of Minnesota wrestling team announced its full schedule for the 2023-24 season on Monday.

The season officially kicks off Nov. 11 and features seven home duals inside Maturi Pavilion. The full season slate includes a total of 14 dual meets, as well as four tournaments. Start times and TV streaming coverage for the upcoming season will be announced at a later date.

The slate gets underway on November 11 when the Maroon & Gold travels to Fargo, N.D., to compete in the Bison Open, before kicking off the dual season at Bucknell on Nov. 16 in the first ever meeting between the schools.

Two days later, Minnesota will visit George Mason for a triangular with the Patriots and Morgan State. The second tournament of the season, the Daktronics Open, is slated for Nov. 19.

One week later, Minnesota makes its home debut on Nov. 26 when it hosts South Dakota State.

After a trip to the Cougar Clash on Dec. 2 in Edwardsville, Ill., the Golden Gophers return home for another Big 12 matchup, this time with North Dakota State on Dec. 10.

A home matchup with Oklahoma State is planned for mid-to-late December but a specific date is still to be determined. The 2023 calendar year then closes out Dec. 29-30 at the Soldier Salute in Iowa City.

The eight-match Big Ten schedule kicks off with a road contest at Iowa on Jan. 15 before the Big Ten home opener on Jan. 19 versus Nebraska.

A road trip to Rutgers on Jan. 27 wraps up the month before Minnesota returns home for two straight dual meets. First up is a clash with Maryland on Feb. 2 followed by a tilt with Northwestern on Feb. 4.

The two-match homestand is followed up by two consecutive meets away from home beginning with Illinois on Feb. 9 and concluding with Purdue on Feb. 11.

The regular season comes to an end with a Border Battle matchup with Wisconsin in Maturi Pavilion on Feb. 16.

The postseason begins at the Big Ten Championships March 9-10 in College Park, Md., before Minnesota takes its national qualifiers to Kansas City, Mo., to compete at the NCAA Championships, March 21-23.
