Burger to Gainous

Gainous some yardage, Trey.

We all remember Auburn’s reverse to victory over the Tide in 1986. Burger to Jessie to Tillman on the end around, a play designed for Scott Bolton, but he wasn’t in the game. Lawyer tried to call a timeout. Thank Heavens, the refs didn’t see him.

But what you may not remember was the 4th & 3 at midfield a few plays earlier. Auburn absolutely had to convert, or else two years of frustration would turn into three.

Here’s the play with Keith Jackson on the call (keep pointing, Coach):

Old Reliable, indeed. Thanks, Trey.
