Oklahoma State will be the host school for the 2023 NCAA Wrestling Championships at the BOK Center in Tulsa, the NCAA announced Wednesday.
The BOK Center will also host the Big 12 Championship through 2024, meaning the venue will host the Big 12 and NCAA tournament in 2023.
It’ll be the first time the NCAA tournament will be held in Oklahoma since 2014 at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City when Penn State won its fourth team NCAA title.
The 2020 tournament at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2021 and 2022 tournaments will be at Enterprise Center in St. Louis, Missouri, and Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, respectively.
The NCAA also announced Kansas City’s T-Mobile Center, Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center and Cleveland’s Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse will host from the NCAA tournament from 2024-26.
The Cowboys have won an NCAA record 34 team titles regardless of sport. OSU won its 34th title in 2006 in Oklahoma City.
