WCWS: Auburn's Tiffany Howard robs Oklahoma of home run in finals

What. A. Catch.

Auburn's Tiffany Howard pulled off one of the best catches you'll ever see in the most crucial of moments on Tuesday night. With her Tigers tied with Oklahoma in the top of the sixth inning in Game 2 of the Women's College World Series championship round, Howard climbed the wall and robbed Shay Knighten of a go-ahead homer.

Take a look at the absurd catch:

Wow. Just wow.

With Auburn trailing 1-0 in the series and needing a victory Tuesday to stay alive, that very well could turn into a season-saving grab by Howard.
