Sporting a massive brace on his right leg, Penn State's Jason Nolf went out and worked over a previously undefeated - but overmatched - freshman to win the 157-lbs. NCAA nationalt title on Saturday night in Cleveland.

No. 3 seed Nolf, who battled back from a knee injury that kept him out the latter part of the season, defeated No. 1 seed Hayden Hidlay of North Carolina State, 6-2.

Nolf's dominating performance came on the heels of teammate Zain Retherford's national-title-winning performance at 149 lbs.
