2023 NWCA All-Star Classic set for November 21 at Penn State
by David Bray, FloWrestling
The NWCA All-Star Classic presented by Cliff Keen is back this season. Many of the best men's and women's college wrestlers in the country will head to Penn State on Tuesday, November 21 at 7:00 pm est. for an early-season showcase packed with dream matchups.
The prestigious event began in 1967 and was a staple of the college season until 2017. After a four year hiatus, the All-Star Classic made its return in 2022 in Austin, Texas due, in large part, to the support of the National Wrestling Coaches Association. This year's meet will take place at Rec Hall on the campus of Penn State.
Last year's event featured 6 NCAA champions in the men's matches and 6 college national champions in the women's matches. Matchups and ticket information will be released soon.
