Iowa outscored Penn State to win the Team National Championship, but Saturday was a big night for the Nittany Lions. With four wrestlers heading into the finals, of which three were underdogs, Penn State went 4-0 in the finals and sent a message to the rest of the country of what is to come. Roman Bravo-Young, Nick Lee, Carter Starocci and Aaron Brooks all took home individual awards and are national champions.

Former All-American linebacker Micah Parsons is a big wrestling fan and has worked out with the team. Saturday night, he was one of their biggest fans and his Twitter feed proved that.

Bravo-Young won the 133 lbs. title over Oklahoma State's Daton Fix in sudden victory to give the Nittany Lions their first national champ.

Nick Lee is a grinder and his win over Iowa's Jaydin Eierman gave Penn State their second national champ of the night.

Carter Starocci was next to face Iowa's Michael Kemerer and after a tight match, pulled off Penn State's third straight sudden victory win.

The lone Penn State favorite Aaron Brooks was left to take on Trent Hidlay from NC State. A hard fought 3-2 win and the Nittany Lions capped off a perfect evening going 4-0 on the biggest stage,

That's what we do.
