Watch The Takedown That Won Ohio State's Kyle Snyder His 3rd National Title

Ohio State's Kyle Snyder wrestles Michigan's Adam Coon.

Kyle Snyder ended his college wrestling career tonight. He did so in perfect fashion.

He went out on top.

Snyder, wrestling in the heavyweight division, faced Michigan's Adam Coon in the national title match. Coon defeated Snyder earlier this season. It was his first loss in three years.

The Buckeyes' star avenged that loss and more tonight. He's a national champion.

Snyder won tonight's match, 3-2. The match was tied, 1-1, late in the third, but Snyder got a two-point takedown.

Here's the takedown that won it.

Snyder, 22, ends his Ohio State wrestling career as undoubtedly one of the best Buckeye athletes of all-time.

He's now a three-time national title winner and a three-time Big Ten champion.

Snyder also holds a gold medal from the 2016 Summer Olympics and two gold medals for the 2015 and '17 world championships.

Ohio State wrestling - and the Buckeyes' athletic program as a whole - will miss him dearly.
