  1. This game and the 2014 game are tied for 1st place in my
    heart for best AU wins… 9 years of Bama loses is a very
    long time… It’s great to be an AU Tiger

  3. I remember watching this segment on the Auburn Football Review the day after the game. Still gives me chills.

    One of my favorite memories of all time was seeing the team run back out on the field that day. The closest experience to it was being in Jordan-Hare on November 30 this past season. Aubiece is right: if you didn’t live through those nine long years of losing to them, you really can’t understand how bad it was. The overwhelming joy of being in Legion Field that day was something I’ll never forget.

  4. Nick, it sure does show one second–I remember watching the very end of that game, from Bo over the top through the end.

    Auburn took a knee on the last play, and a Bama player called the last Bama timeout with one second to go. I remember being paranoid that something would happen with another snap. The people flooded the field as Bear and Dye met at midfield for the handshake. While they were shaking hands, the referee came up to Bear and pointed out that a timeout had been called. I remember being able to clearly read Bear’s lips, as he gave a half-wave hand gesture: “Just let it go.” I guess that second never officially ticked off the clock.

    (who doesn’t think Bama could have done what we did with that one second, though!)
