The Florida Gators overcame an early fall on the balance beam to take the 2013 NCAA women’s gymnastics national championship over Oklahoma with a 197.575.

After having to count a fall in the first rotation, most people counted out Florida for the title, but the Gators proved everyone wrong as they came roaring back on the next three events, scoring 49.725, 49.5 and 49.475 on floor, vault and bars, respectively.

The Gators join the group of only four other teams — Georgia, UCLA, Utah and Alabama — to have won a national championship.
