Nothing was going to keep Eric and Faith DeVault from watching the Big 12 title game, not even their own wedding. The couple, married Saturday morning in Overland Park, Kansas, received two tickets to see Kansas play Kansas State from their groomsmen.

So they hurried over to the Sprint Center in nearby Kansas City still wearing their tuxedo and wedding dress, though Faith did ditch her heels for a pair of flats.

The couple attracted quite a bit of attention sitting about 20 rows behind the Kansas bench and even managed to get a picture with the Jayhawks' mascot, Big Jay.

Eric grew up a Kansas fan and said he converted his new wife, who grew up in San Diego. The Big 12 sent a staff member up to their seats and presented them with a ball before the game and Eric said he was hoping to snag an autograph from Kansas coach Bill Self.

The seventh-ranked Jayhawks defeated the No. 11 Wildcats 70-54 to win their ninth Big 12 Tournament championship.
