Auburn wins in the last second of the Iron Bowl, 34-28
Davis caught the ball about 9 yards deep in the end zone after freshman Adam Griffith’s 57-yard attempt fell short. He then sprinted down the left sideline and cut back with nothing but teammates around him in a second straight hard-to-fathom finish for the Tigers (11-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference).
AUBURN, Ala. — In a season of miracles for Auburn, all it has taken is one mistake to give the Tigers life.
No. 1 Alabama made just enough of them Saturday to change the course of history.
With no time left on the clock, Auburn cornerback Chris Davis caught a 57-yard field goal attempt by Alabama in the back of the end zone, ran it out down the left sideline and went 109 yards untouched to beat the Crimson Tide, 34-28.
BOX SCORE: Tigers 34, Crimson Tide 28
HIGHLIGHTS: How the top 25 fared in Week 14
No overtime. No three-peat for Alabama. No forgetting this Iron Bowl, which exceeded every bit of pre-game hype, all the way down to the final second.
Think fate is on Auburn’s side this season?

The 2013 Iron Bowl was hyped to be an epic battle between college football’s greatest rivalry. Many will say the game lived up to the hype as Auburn made a win in the final second of the game.
Alabama looked like they were going to come out strong on the opening drive. The first play of the game saw T.J. Yeldon rush through the Auburn defense for 31 yards. The following play added another 11 yards with an A.J. McCarron pass to Kevin Norwood. At this point, the Auburn defense stepped up and was able to force Alabama into a 4th and 3 at the Auburn 27. A 44-yard field goal attempt was made by Cade Foster, but it swung too far left.
Auburn’s first shot at offense looked like it was going to move the ball. The Tigers started with a 14-yard rush by Corey Grant. Two plays later, Nick Marshall threw a long pass to wide-open Ricardo Louis, but the receiver was not able to hold on to the ball. Auburn was forced to punt away on 4th and 4 at their own 48.
The Tigers were the first team to make it to the endzone. While facing 3rd and 18 on the 4th play of their second possession, QB Nick Marshall connected with Sammie Coates for 21 yards and the first down. Nick Marshall broke past the Tide defense for 45 yards and the Auburn touchdown. Parkey’s extra point was good.

AUBURN, Alabama — Hundreds of Alabama and Auburn fans filled the seats of the Auburn Arena to take in this year’s Iron Bowl on the jumbotron.
For those wanting to watch the Iron Bowl with hundreds of other fans, but unwilling to spend the cash on tickets to the stadium, the Auburn Arena was a spirited, and most importantly free, place to take in the big game.
The University announced last week they would open the arena up to fans and allow attendees to bring in their own drinks and food.
