Despite an incredible, inspirational effort from Auburn in Game 2 to even the series and force a Game 3, Oklahoma was able to overcome the adversity to bring home the title with a hard-fought effort on Wednesday night.

Wednesday’s crowd was a record-setting audience which included Auburn football head coach Gus Malzahn and Oklahoma star quarterback Baker Mayfield.
