Kyle Snyder Wins NCAA Heavyweight Battle Of Champions In Overtime

Ohio State’s Kyle Snyder won the NCAA heavyweight wrestling title Saturday night in an overtime match that was billed as the biggest bout in that weight class in more than 60 years.

Snyder defeated NCSU’s Nick Gwiazdowski by completing a takedown to end the match, which went to overtime tied 5-5. The top-seeded Gwiazdowski was seeking his third NCAA heavyweight title and his 89th straight win in the circle. Snyder, a reigning world champion, lost in the NCAA finals of a lower weight class last year.
