Semifinal results below

Iowa is sending four wrestlers to the finals of the 2013 Big Ten Championships.

Matt McDonough, Tony Ramos, Mark Ballweg and Mike Evans all were victorious in the semifinals on Saturday in Champaign, IL.

Still, the Hawkeyes suffered a blow when their defending Big Ten champion at 157 pounds, Derek St. John, fell in his match.

Iowa is in third place in the team score with 109 points. Penn State has 123 points and Minnesota is at 112.5. Iowa is not out of the team race, but it is not promising at this point.

In the finals, two-time NCAA champion McDonough will face Jesse Delgado of Illinois, who has defeated the nearly invincible McDonough twice.

The championships are at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday.
