DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Some think Minnesota is the nation’s top wrestling team this season. Others believe Penn State is primed for a third straight NCAA championship.

Almost everyone knows not to sleep on Iowa, and Ohio State certainly appears to be a program on the rise.

No matter how you look at it, the Big Ten is set to rule the sport in 2012-13. Four of the top five teams in the National Wrestling Coaches Association/USA Today preseason poll, led by the top-ranked Gophers, are from the Big Ten.

The college wrestling season begins in earnest for many of the top contenders this weekend and ends in March at the NCAA championships in Des Moines, Iowa.
