The Big Ten wrestling championships, scheduled for March 3 and 4 on the Purdue campus, will feature quite a few wrestlers from the Minnesota Golden Gophers. Kevin Steinhaus, Sonny Yohn and Tony Nelson are all the top seeds in their weight class.

NCAA wrestling isn't one of the sports that gets a lot of coverage, but the Minnesota Golden Gophers wrestling team probably deserves it. The top-seeded Gophers will be well represented this weekend at the Big Ten Championships as three different wrestler will begin in the bracket at the top of their weight class.

The Big Ten Championships, which will be held beginning March 3 at Purdue, should give the Gophers a good chance to showcase themselves. The school announced this week that quite a few individual wrestlers are solidly ranked.

Nine Golden Gophers are seeded in the top seven of their weight class in the preliminary seeds. Kevin Steinhaus (184 lbs.), Sonny Yohn (197 lbs.) and Tony Nelson (Hwt) all received the top overall seed for their weight class. Zach Sanders (125 lbs.) and Logan Storley (174 lbs.) were each awarded a No.2 seed, while Dylan Ness (149 lbs.) was given the No. 3 seed. Both Chris (133 lbs.) and Nick Dardanes (141 lbs.) earned the No. 4 seed, while Cody Yohn is the No. 7 seed in the 165 lbs. division.

All four sessions, beginning Saturday, will be covered by the Big Ten Network with four championships airing live Sunday afternoon on television while the rest will be carried online.
