AUBURN, Ala. The NCAA confirmed Thursday what Auburn fans already knew: Softball's College World Series was one highlight after another for the Tigers.

The NCAA revealed its Top 10 plays from the games in Oklahoma City, and Auburn came in with four of the Top 5 plays.

Spoiler alert: Emily Carosone's extra-inning grand slam that led Auburn over Oklahoma in the second game of the best-of-three finals was deemed the No. 1 play. The play that made Carosone's grand slam possible, Tiffany Howard's home-run-robbing-over-the-fence catch, was selected as the No. 2 play.

Here's a taste of those two moments:

Victoria Draper's diving catch was No. 3 and Kasey Cooper's bare-handed grab of a bounder and her throw to first was the No. 5 play.

Auburn finished as the national runner-up to Oklahoma in the College World Series.

Here's the NCAA video of the Top 10 plays (the Auburn plays start at the 1:40 mark, though some of you may see an NCAA commercial before the highlights begin.
