Darby Dean made history in No. 18 Oklahoma's Bedlam match against No. 14 Oklahoma State Saturday night.

Dean became the first woman to drive the Sooner Schooner in school history. The Sooner Schooner has been an OU tradition since first appearing in 1964.

“The most indescribable experience ever," Dean told ESPN's Holly Rowe. "I wish I had words to answer the question but I don’t. It’s just a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

OU currently leads the Cowboys, 27-13, going into the third quarter.
