Minnesota Golden Gophers Wrestling TicketsThe Minnesota Golden Gophers wrestling team first formed in 1910. Initially more of a wrestling club, the program did not compete in its first dual meet until 1919. The program generally languished until Dave Bartelma took control as head coach in 1936. Bartelma established a winning tradition that lasted through 13 seasons as head coach. The World War II and the post-war years disrupted his coaching tenure slightly, but the Golden Gophers posted an 82-32-5 dual meet record for a .710 winning rate. Bartelma also coached Golden Gophers grappling great Verne Gagne to two individual NCAA titles. The Golden Gophers enjoyed relatively sustained national success during the past two decades. National team titles in 2001, 2002 and 2007 affirm the program reached national prominence. Minnesota remains among top-ranked programs with individual and team national title contenders fielded nearby every season. Get Minnesota Golden Gophers Wrestling tickets at StubHub.
