RADIO: Hawkeye All-Access ($); KXIC

The team race is over -- Penn State won, again -- but there's still individual glory up for grabs. In particular, Iowa's Cory Clark is seeking an elusive national championship. For the third straight year, he's made it to the finals on Saturday night. Let's hope this journey has a better ending than the first two times did. 

Here's the match order for tonight: 

197: #1 J'den Cox (Missouri) vs #2 Brett Pfarr (Minnesota)
285: #1 Kyle Snyder (Ohio State) vs #2 Connor Medbery (Wisconsin)
125: #4 Darian Cruz (Lehigh) vs #6 Ethan Lizak (Minnesota)
133: #4 Cory Clark (Iowa) vs #2 Seth Gross (South Dakota State)
141: #1 Dean Heil (Oklahoma State) vs #6 George DiCamillo (Virginia)
149: #1 Zain Retherford (Penn State) vs #3 Lavion Mayes (Missouri)
157: #1 Jason Nolf (Penn State) vs #3 Joey Lavallee (Missouri)
165: #1 Isaiah Martinez (Illinois) vs #3 Vincenzo Joseph (Penn State)
174: #3 Bo Jordan (Ohio State) vs #5 Mark Hall (Penn State)
184: #1 Gabe Dean (Cornell) vs #2 Bo Nickal (Penn State)

Clark's match is the fourth of the night, so given that the finals start at about 7 PM, I'd estimate that his match will be starting around 8-8:15 PM CT. 

I'll post results and observations in the comments below; feel free to join me! Let's go Cory Clark!
