You can say that Oklahoma figuratively broke Alabama in Thursday night's Allstate Sugar Bowl win, but they literally almost tipped over ESPN's postgame stage.
The team went to crowd around coach Bob Stoops and quarterback Trevor Knight while the two were on the set and when the team jumped on behind them, well, the set tipped backwards.
The Sooners bailed before they could have caused any more damage -- or flung Lou Holtz and Mark May to the turf -- but the set was leaning the rest of the night.
Oklahoma beat the Crimson Tide 45-31 behind Knight's four passing touchdowns and a stellar performance from its defense, which sacked Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron seven times.
