A comeback victory netted Isaac Jordan the third Big Ten Wrestler of the Week award of his career.

The third-ranked Jordan, 13-1 this season, is a two-time Big Ten champion at 165 pounds and was the NCAA runner-up last year.

He is the son of U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan (R), who was a two-time NCAA champion and three-time All-American wrestler at Wisconsin.
