After a three-day tournament among the nation's best collegiate wrestlers, tonight is the finals for the 2012 NCAA Division I National Wrestling Championships. Join MMA Fighting tonight at 7:30 pm ET as we bring you live results for all ten weight classes. Tonight's event (and the entire tournament) takes place at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis Missouri. The finals will air on ESPN or ESPN3.com.
In terms of team points, Penn State University (PSU) - headed by U.S. gold medalist Cael Sanderson - has already mathematically clinched the win. Only points deducted for penalties could force them to lose the title. In addition, PSU is sending five wrestlers to the finalists, more than any other program this year.
