PITTSBURGH (AP) — Penn State is poised to send out another senior class as four-time national champions and cement its status as the college powerhouse of the past decade.

The Nittany Lions (14-0) are the prohibitive favorites to claim the team title at this weekend's NCAA Championships for the eighth time in nine years and for the fourth year in a row.

They might be the most talented team that coach Cael Sanderson has assembled.

Penn State has three wrestlers seeded first in their weight class, three more seeded second and another seeded third.

They'll compete in Pittsburgh, less than 150 miles away from State College.
