Historic NCAA Finals losses that were shockers

Recommended Posts

Most everyone, including myself, believes that Zain Retherford will win his 3rd title next  month. 

 

He's a terrific wrestler, and he deserves all the accolades he's received.

He's considered "can't lose."

What wrestlers from the past were considered similar locks, but lost in the NCAA Finals?

The most famous example is Gable losing to Owings, but I'm sure there are others.

Whitmer over Durlacher kinda.  Durlacher had beaten him at Big10s and he had also taken 2 losses to Morgan and 1 to Moore, but beat them consecutively at the NCAAs.  

 

Moore by tech fall over Lang.  Not so much that Lang lost, just the way he lost, and that Moore hadn't even been an AA before.
