What a night! Penn State wrestling clinched the National Championship in wrestling earlier in the day, but had five wrestlers going for individual titles. To add even more drama to the evening, the puck dropped at 8:00 as Penn State squared off vs. Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship game.
In the end, both teams added new hardware to their trophy cases as part of one of the more memorable nights in Penn State athletics in some time. It was a night to remember and Penn State twitter took notice. Here is what some of our favorite Nittany Lions had to say about the school's huge night.
