ALABAMA / AUBURN FINISH

I am here at my lovely #1 daughter's place. Her hubby is a huge Ohio State fan, so we watched that game, then the auburn/alabama game came on and we watched it too. Now Alabama was favored but Auburn was not far behind. The last play of regulation turned out to be a field goal by alabama going for the win with one second on the clock. It was a 57 yard attempt. I noticed that auburn had a guy back there in the end zone and wondered if i had seen that before. I was unaware that if the goal missed they could catch it and run it back....but they could and they did. .....did with an explanation mark as the guy faked right and ran along the left sideline for a touch down!

Amazing.

Anyhow now it seems my SIL believes OSU will play for the national championship.

Wooooo hoooo!

Will Rogers never met Nick Saban.

I googled it and found a link. Thanks for the heads up, good play on Auburns part. I can typically make it through about the first inning of the football games. The wife enjoys watching them though.

Great game and even better finish. This is my nightmare college football season though. My Gators finish 4-8 and then FSU and an Ohio State University play for the National Championship... yuck

Is that for sure? What if FSU or OSU loses its conference championship game?

Sorry about your Gators. I was in Orlando on a football Saturday one time. The streets were empty. EVERYBODY, or so it seemed, was either at the game or in front of their TV. They like their Gators down there.

I'm hoping for an FSU/OSU championship because the SEC needs to let someone else win for a change.

Kudos to the Michigan coach for going for 2 at the end of the game yesterday. That took cojones.

I would say that was a coaching mistake. Alabama should have let it go into overtime.

The odds were definitely in Auburn's favor on that play. Alabama's FG unit is made up of all the big guys. In other words, the slow guys. They didn't have any skill players on the field. In football at any level, speed kills.

That was one heck of a kick off return, is what it turned out to be. One would think that the great coaching staff of Alabama would have coached or prepared their players for this possibility? Guess not. The freshman's lame kick, was ripe for an Auburn receiver run back.
