CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Stanford narrowly defeated Oklahoma to win the NCAA men's gymnastics championship on Saturday at State Farm Center.

Stanford recorded a team score of 415.222 to capture its sixth national title.

The meet was decided on the final rotation, and a costly fall from the top gymnast in the country sealed OU's fate.
