Iron Bowl Madness

Well in case you’ve been living in a cave, allow us to introduce you to arguably one of the best finishes in college football.  This past week Auburn hosted Alabama in the Iron Bowl.  Alabama, the two-time defending National Champion, was favored to win.  The teams were tied 28-28 in the 4th quarter, with 1 second on the clock, so Alabama attempted a field goal from 57-yard field goal.  The kick was short and Auburn’s Chris Davis returned the ball 109 yards for the game-winning touch down.  Turn up your volume (you cannot fake that kind of excitement) and check out this clip:

This finish is being compared to one of the other most storied rivalries in college football: Stanford vs. Cal in 1982.  Stanford was ahead 20-19 with 4 seconds left on in the game and the Bears used 5 lateral passes on the kick off return to score the game-winning touch down.  What makes this play even more remarkable was that the Stanford band had come onto the field thinking the game was over.  It’s pure chaos and a wonderful finish.  Take a look:

You can decide which is better if you must; we appreciate both!
