2017 NCAA Wrestling Championships Saturday preview
Penn State had a huge day Friday , and look poised to repeat as team champions. Five Penn State wrestlers will compete for an individual national title as well. Ohio State is currently second and has two potential champions, including Olympic gold medalist Kyle Snyder.
Penn State’s victory seemed unlikely after 125-pound freshman Nick Suriano withdrew before the tournament because of an ankle injury. His absence helped vault Ohio State to the Big Ten title over the Nittany Lions.
Oklahoma State is third and has only one wrestler in the finals, but seven still battling in the consolation rounds and a lot of third-place finishes could put heat on the Nittany Lions if their stars falter in the finals.
