Alabama Auburn Game 2013

December 1, 2013 by  

Alabama Auburn Game 2013, Gus Malzahn’s return to Auburn this season has often felt like something straight out of a movie. Chris Davis gave Malzahn’s story a fitting Hollywood ending on Saturday.

Davis returned a 57-yard field goal attempt from Adam Griffith for a touchdown as time expired, giving Auburn a 34-28 victory over Alabama in the 2013 Iron Bowl.

Taking the ball nearly at the back line of the opposite end zone, Davis scampered the entire way down the field, flanked by Tigers players who had set up a wide wedge down the sideline. Officially recognized as a 100-yard return, the senior defensive back’s thrilling play left Jordan-Hare Stadium in an unrecognizable sea of blue and orange as shell-shocked Crimson Tide players attempted to leave the field.

Auburn’s miracle victory nearly didn’t happen. T.J. Yeldon had set up the attempt with a 24-yard run, but it was initially ruled on the field that he stepped out of bounds as time expired. But after the replay official determined that Yeldon was out with one second remaining, Nick Saban decided to take a risk on attempting the deep field goal to end regulation.

Griffith had attempted just two career field goals prior to his 57-yarder, and he was only in the game because of the struggles of starting Alabama kicker Cade Foster. Foster had missed three field goals in the game, including two critical ones in the second half that proved even more important than they seemed at the time.
