After two of its most dominating victories of the season last week at the ASU Duals, the No. 14 Nebraska wrestling team returns to action this Friday, Jan. 6, when it opens the Big Ten Conference portion of its schedule against No. 6 Ohio State at 7 p.m. inside the NU Coliseum.

The Huskers haven't dropped a dual yet this season by going a perfect 9-0, which is tied for the most wins to start a season by any team in school history. The Buckeyes will enter the dual with a 7-0 mark, and a 1-0 record in Big Ten Conference competition.

Friday's dual marks Military Appreciation Night for the Husker program, with all active and retired military personnel receiving free admission to the dual.

Also, before NU's dual against the Buckeyes, Nebraska high school programs Omaha Skutt and Grand Island will dual at 5 p.m. inside the NU Coliseum. Ticket prices for the special event are $10 for an adult and $6 for children and each fan only needs one ticket for admittance into both the high school dual and Nebraska dual. Fans can order tickets by visiting Huskers.com or calling 1-800-8BIGRED.

Military personnel will receive free admission to both the high school dual and the Huskers' match against OSU.
