Video: Auburn beats Alabama 34-28 with missed field goal return for a touchdown
This year’s Iron Bowl will go down as one of the most memorable games in college football history. After Alabama running back T.J. Yeldon ran out of bounds with one second remaining in the fourth quarter of a 28-28 game, the top-ranked Crimson Tide lined up to attempt a game-winning 57-yard field goal.
Instead, the attempt by kicker Adam Griffith — a redshirt freshman from Calhoun, Ga. — fell just short, and Auburn senior Chris Davis raced more than 100 yards, from end zone to end zone, to give the Tigers a miraculous 34-28 win. The stunning touchdown knocked Alabama from the ranks of the unbeaten and effectively ended the Crimson Tide’s chances of winning a third consecutive national title.
Now, Auburn will play in the SEC championship — and Ohio State fans are suddenly ready to play the lottery.
