Penn State's Quentin Wright upset top-seeded Dustin Kilgore of Kent State to give the Nittany Lions their third straight team title Saturday night in the NCAA wrestling championships.

Wright beat Kilgore 8-6 at 197 pounds, giving the Nittany Lions an insurmountable lead over Oklahoma State.

Penn State began the day with a 20.5-point lead over the Cowboys. The Nittany Lions also had five wrestlers in the finals, three more than Oklahoma State.

The Cowboys stormed back for a brief one-point lead. But wins by Ed Ruth and Wright sealed the crown for Penn State.
