The 1928 NCAA Wrestling Championships were contested at the first annual NCAA-sponsored wrestling meet to determine the individual national champions of collegiate wrestling in the United States. The inaugural edition was hosted by the Iowa Agricultural College (now known as Iowa State) at State Gymnasium in Ames, Iowa.[1]

Unlike all later editions of the event, no team championship was awarded. A total of seven individual championships were awarded across seven corresponding weight classes. Oklahoma A&M, nonetheless, won four of the seven weight classes and have been subsequently deemed the 1928 unofficial national team champions.
