VIDEO: Counting Down the Top 5 Wrestling Programs of All-Time

The good folks at @ncaawrestling released this video this week, counting down the top five college wrestling programs of all-time, which is a fun look at the best of the best in the history of the sport. 

The rankings are largely based on team national championships, so despite their recent stranglehold on the sport, Penn State only checks in at #5 on this list. The top two on the list are rather familiar and -- hey, would look at that timing -- are scheduled to wrestle in a dual meet in Iowa City tomorrow afternoon. Iowa has 23 national titles, but Oklahoma State still leads the way with 34 team championships, even if 19 of those came when they were still known as Oklahoma A&M. (They won their first-title when Iowa State was still known as Iowa Agricultural College.) 

Neither school is favored to add to their total this year, but both are still among the best in the sport. They'll be facing off Sunday (3 PM CT, BTN) in a dual meet that's likely to be tightly contested.
