Wrestling looks really hard, especially for the wrestler from Wisconsin who got owned by Minnesota's Mitch McKee in a minute and 20 seconds, which we're told is super fast.

If you blinked you may have missed @GopherWrestling's Mitch McKee's match on Sunday.

So let's see it again. ????https://t.co/Nzs98B4Gp1

The Gophers beat Wisconsin 18-15. As for the pin, it doesn't come anywhere close to the fastest in Gophers history. Jim Martinez owns that record, pinning some guy from the University of Minnesota-Morris in 13 seconds in 1981. Brock Lesnar's fastest career pin was 22 seconds.

It's a big border battle week for the Gophers and Badgers. They meet in men's basketball on Saturday at Williams Arena and in men's hockey Friday and Saturday in Madison, Wisconsin.
