Auburn and Oklahoma squared off in Game 2 of the Women’s College World Series on Tuesday, and Tiffany Howard briefly helped to save Auburn’s season with an incredible catch.

The game was tied 7–7 in the top of the sixth when Shay Knighten hit a deep fly ball to centerfield. Knighten's shot was snagged at the top of the wall by Howard, who prevented a two-run home run with the catch. Oklahoma entered the game leading 1–0, and was leading 7–0 before the Tigers came back to tie the game. The Sooners would have clinched the championship with a win.


​Auburn forced a decisive Game 3 off of Emily Carosone's walk-off Grand Slam, completing a comeback of 11 unanswered runs.

Auburn’s seven-run comeback tied the largest comeback in WCWS history.
