Oklahoma’s reign as the #1 team in the land was short lived as #13 Texas A&M took advantage of a big opportunity and beat the Sooners 4-3 in front of a lively crowd on a terribly windy night.
Here is the story of the match in videos:
Axel Alvarez keeps plugging away at 31 and here he wins the first set over Shane Vinsant
Spencer Papa of Oklahoma steals the first set away from Arthur Rinderkneck 7-6(5) on court 4 and briefly turned the momentum to Oklahoma.
But AJ Catanzariti shifts the momentum right back to A&M with this huge tiebreaker win in the 1st set over the usually clutch Alex Ghilea on court 5. This tiebreak was going on at the exact same time as the tiebreak on court 4.
Catanzariti rolled in the 2nd set. Here he is clinching his win over Chilea 7-6(5) 6-1.
The action concluded on court 4 where Arthur Rinderkneck added the 2nd big clinch of his very young career (also clinched the big win over Ohio State).
