UNIVERISTY PARK, Pa. -- After a days work it's nice to get welcomed home.  I guess you could say winning a 4th straight national title is a days work...or seasons...or years.

The Penn State wrestling team flew into University Park Aiport sunday, less than twenty four hours after wrapping up their 4th straight national title in Oklahoma City.  Upon landing over one hundred people gathered to congratulate the team.  A true heroes welcome.

The Nittany Lions feature eight all-americans including two and three time national champions David Taylor and Ed Ruth.

Oklahoma A&M, Oklahoma State, Iowa and now Penn State are the only teams in Division 1 wrestling history to win four or more national titles in a row.
