Iowa had the title locked up heading into the 2021 NCAA finals, and while Jaydin Eierman and Michael Kemerer lost at 141 and 174, Spencer Lee capped off the finals with a victory over Brandon Courtney. After the finals, he revealed that he had been competing without any ACLs.

Penn State was in a tight battle with Oklahoma State for second, but they left no doubt that they were the second best team in the country by going four for four in the finals with victories from Roman Bravo-Young, Nick Lee, Carter Starocci, and Aaron Brooks.

Oklahoma State finished in third, and AJ Ferrari added to their total point tally by winning the title at 197 lbs over Nino Bonaccorsi. Arizona State took home the fourth team trophy to signal strong program momentum in Tempe.
