Not only is PSU a great team, they are a bad matchup for Michigan. Everywhere Michigan is real good, Penn State has a returning national champ. Michigan is wrestling well, just not a good match up.

No, Cliff Keen Arena was created to move Wrestling, Gymnastics and Volleyball out of Crisler. 

Wrestling moved out of Yost Field House and into Crisler along with Basketball when the building was opened. Cliff Keen Arena was created in 1989-90 and became the permanent home of the program.

Crisler has been used for occasional meets since, and when the B1G Championships are hosted by U-M, they're always held in Crisler because of the need for multiple mats. 

Tonight was the first dual in Crisler since 2006-07.

The team looked good despite the final score. As a former wrestler and an MMA fighter, it was cool to hear them mention jiu jitsu during the broadcast
