1953 Penn State Team @ RevRewind
'53 Penn State
At the 2008 NCAAs, Penn State University made headlines by having two of its wrestlers in the finals -- Bubba Jenkins and Phil Davis -- with Davis winning the 197-pound title, and the Nittany Lions finishing third. Fifty-five years earlier, what was then called Pennsylvania State College made even bigger headlines. Not just for hosting the 1953 NCAAs, but also for winning the team title ? the last Eastern college to do so. RevWrestling.com's Mark Palmer provides an in-depth look at the 1953 Penn State team and examines the history of the program in the latest installment of Rev Rewind.

Interesting article. It's amazing not only how much travel, qualification, etc. has changed, but to have a champ and three other AA's and only get 21 points for that is quite a change from today's tournament scoring.
