Wild Last-Second Comeback Wins 174-Lb. DI Wrestling Title For Penn State

You don't need to know much about wrestling to get what happened here. We start with six seconds left in a match for the 174-lb. Division I national championship, with Penn State's Matt Brown down by a point to Pitt's Tyler Wilps and rules about how you're not allowed to delay the match or lock hands around your opponent in certain positions on the books. Thing you don't need to know but that will make it more fun: the bald Penn State coach stalking the edge of the mat who looks like he could hop on and take both of these wrestlers apart is Cael Sanderson, one of the greatest American athletes of all time.
