Penn State wrestling's Bo Nickal picks up third Big Ten title in continued dominance at 197 pounds

Bo Nickal has already cemented himself in Penn State wrestling history by winning and pinning opponents at a prolific rate.

He currently ranks second all-time in pins and sixth all-time in bonus point wins and now, he can add another accolade to his collection.

With his win in the 197 pound final of the 2019 Big Ten tournament, Nickal became just the sixth Penn State wrestler ever to claim three or more Big Ten titles.

The three-time All-American took on defending 197 pound champion Kollin Moore of Ohio State and Nickal once again had Moore's number, beating him by 10-3 decision.

Nickal pinned Moore in the first period earlier this year when Penn State traveled to Columbus to take on the Buckeyes and the Big Ten rematch furthered the notion that regardless of weight class, Nickal is one of the nation's top wrestlers.
