(Stillwater-AP) -- The remodeling of Gallagher-Iba Arena will force the Oklahoma State wrestling team to hold their first two duals off campus.

But the Iowa Hawkeyes will be the first team the Cowboys face in Gallagher-Iba. That dual takes place on December Second.

O-S-U coach John Smith says Iowa has four seniors returning and will be a tough team to beat.

Minnesota, Michigan State and a trip to the National Duals in University Park, Pennsylvania round out the remainder of the schedule.

The Cowboys close out the regular season by hosting the Sooners on February 18th for the 141st edition of the Bedlam Battle.

O-S-U will host the Big 12 Championships in March before heading to the N-C-Double-A championships.
