Kevin Jackson

A preseason favorite

First-year ISU head wrestling coach Kevin Jackson introduced his team at Tuesday's media day. The ISU alum and former Olympic gold medalist has a roster that includes five returning NCAA All-Americans, which earned the team a preseason No. 2 ranking by InterMat magazine. The Cyclones open their wrestling season with a Nov. 12 home dual match against South Dakota State (7 p.m., Hilton Coliseum). Season tickets are $50 ($45 for faculty/staff); individual match tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for youth. Photo by Bob Elbert.
