For the second time in four years, the Auburn Tigers will be playing in the BCS Championship Game. Led by dual-threat quarterback Nick Marshall, the Tigers are looking to add one more victory to a season that saw two of the most incredible game-ending plays in college football history.
On November 16, 2013, the Tigers were trailing the Georgia Bulldogs 37-38 with just 36 seconds left in the game. Facing 4th and 18 from the Tigers own 27 yard line, Marshall threw a Hail Mary pass into double coverage towards wide receiver, Ricardo Louis. The ball bounced off one of the Georgia defenders and right into Louis' hands as he ran in for a touchdown. The play has become known as "The Prayer at Jordan-Hare."
Two weeks later on November 30th, the Tigers were trailing the Alabama Crimson Tide 21-28 with less than a minute left in the game. Marshall faked a hand-off, then rolled out to his left. Just as he was going to cross the line of scrimmage, he found Sammie Coates downfield for a game tying, 39 yard touchdown pass with just 32 second left. Three plays later, with one second left on the clock, Bama line up for a potential 56 yard game winning field goal. The kick fell just a couple yards short and was caught by Auburn cornerback, Chris Davis at the back of the end zone. Davis returned the ball (almost stepped out of bounds) the entire length of the field for a touchdown, giving Auburn the win. Davis' "Kick Six" play has been called the greatest game-ending play in the history of college football.
