Redshirt freshman Tyler Love (Clifton, Va.) and senior Chuck Boddy (Abington, Pa.) both competed at heavyweight, finishing third and fourth, respectively.
At 133 pounds, Mason posted three wins that included a major decision over Michael Johnson of Northern Colorado, a pin of Chance Ikei from Arizona State and a tech fall over Alec Opsal of Air Force on the way to his title.
Krivus picked up a pair of bonus-point wins on his way to the title at 149 pounds.
