 OU Wrestling Tradition | 7 National Championships OU Wrestling Main 
OU's first national championship in any sport came when head coach Paul V. Keen led the wrestling program to the NCAA title in 1936. It was the first chapter in what has become one of the nation's most storied programs.
Six more championships have followed, including three under Port Robertson (1951, '52 and '57), two under Tommy Evans (1960 and '63), and the latest under Stan Abel in 1974.
Since then, Oklahoma has finished among the top 10 at the national tournament 27 times, including four runner-up finishes. It's only a matter of time before the Sooners add even more hardware to the trophy case.
