It just keeps getting better for Penn State wrestling.

The team has already sealed the Big Ten championship.

Then, the most dramatic match of the weekend took place.

Second-seeded Mitchell Mesenbrink trailed No. 1 and defending Big Ten champion Dean Hamiti of Wisconsin 9-2. He ended up winning 13-11. The Cal-Baptist transfer came into this season with two college matches under his belt. Now, he’s firmly established as one of Penn State’s heavy hitters.

Toward the end of the win, Big Ten Network play-by-play announcer Shane Spark referred to the comeback as “Mesenbrink Magic.”

Watch the finish here.
