AMES, Iowa -- The fourth-ranked Oklahoma wrestling team improved to 7-0 in dual competition on the season with a 27-11 win over conference foe and No. 17 Iowa State Sunday afternoon inside Hilton Coliseum.

The Sooners, who are 2-0 in Big 12 matchups, won seven of the dual's 10 matches.

"We are happy to come away with the win," OU head coach Mark Cody said. "We can definitely take a lot away from this match. These last two matches were big tests for our program. The majority of our team are prepared every time they step on the mat. Our goal for the week is to have everyone prepared for Northern Iowa when it rolls into town next Sunday."

The contest began at 133 pounds, and redshirt sophomore and eighth-ranked Cody Brewer registered a 15-0 technical fall of Iowa State freshman Dakota Bauer.

No. 12 Nick Lester and No. 4 Kendric Maple both won by major decision at 141 pounds and 149 pounds, respectively. Lester topped redshirt freshman Gabe Moreno, 14-0, and Maple defeated redshirt junior Luke Goettl, 10-1.

At 157 pounds, redshirt junior Justin DeAngelis won a fourth-straight match for the Sooners as he edged redshirt senior John Nicholson by decision, 8-5.

First-ranked Andrew Howe dominated No. 13 Tanner Weatherman at 174 pounds to remain perfect on the season at 14-0, including a 6-0 mark in dual competition. Howe won the match by technical fall, 22-7.

In the 184-pound bout, freshman Danny Chaid recorded an upset of No. 13 Boaz Beard of the Cyclones with a 6-5 decision.

Jarrod Patterson registered his sixth dual victory of the year as he topped Kyle Larson by decision, 5-0, in the 125-pound matchup.

The Sooners suffered three losses in the dual. Clark Glass fell to Iowa State's Michael Moreno by a 13-0 major decision at 165 pounds.

In the most-highly anticipated matchup of the afternoon, which pitted No. 3 Travis Rutt of OU against No. 2 Kyven Gadson of Iowa State at 197 pounds, Gadson won by sudden victory, 3-1. The loss was Rutt's first of the season.

No. 14 Ross Larson, a redshirt freshman, suffered a loss to Quean Smith by major decision, 13-2.

The Sooners return to action at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 19 as they welcome No. 10 Northern Iowa to McCasland Field House. The dual will be OU's first at home since defeating Big 12 opponent Oklahoma State in comeback fashion 16-15 on Dec. 1.
