    Historical Bracket Breakdown: 275 lbs at the 1997 NCAA Championships

    In June, we started a new feature investigating some of the toughest NCAA brackets of all time. In our first two editions of this feature, we looked at the 133 lb weight class from 2019 and the 157 lb weight class from 2009. Now, we’re going back into the 1990’s to look at an excellent 275 lb weight class from 1997. 

    The 1997 275 lb class featured a pair of returning national champions amongst the seven returning All-Americans. The trio atop this weight class would go on to dominate the Senior level for the next decade, each winning a world medal. 

    In addition, a couple of members of this weight class would go on to make names for themselves in the NFL and the WWE. 

    So, get ready to relive one of the better heavyweight brackets of all-time. 


    The Champion: Kerry McCoy (Penn State)
