Auburn takes Alabama to the woodshed in Iron Bowl victory

Auburn takes Alabama to the woodshed in Iron Bowl victory

Bulovas could tie the game with a 30-yard field goal, but the Achilles heel of Saban's crimson dynasty reared its ugly head again, as the kick smacked off the left upright. The 48 points were the most ever surrendered by Alabama under Nick Saban.

Auburn took the win, with a final score of 48-45, ending the regular season with a signature win for coach Gus Malzahn.

The ball was spotted, Auburn got the snap away before time ran out in the half, and Anders Carlson converted from 52 yards to cut Alabama's lead to 31-27 at intermission. Shivers smashed into Xavier McKinney, knocking the safety's helmet off on the way to the end zone.

Auburn backup linebacker Zakoby McClain returned an interception 100 yards for a touchdown and a huge swing midway through the third quarter.

Sonic boom: Loud bang from RAF jet heard across Hertfordshire
A whole lot of Londoners have reported listening to a big "explosion" throughout London and as far north as Hertfordshire. RAF jets are only given permission to go supersonic in emergencies, such as when they need to intercept another aircraft.

Bama ended up losing 48-45.

"That was just pound-and-ground football", Shivers said. I don't fear anybody. Nix then found Will Hastings for an 11-yard gain on a throwaway, and then Sal Canella, using his 6-foot-5 frame to keep his toes in bounds while reaching far out of bounds, snared a game-tying touchdown pass with 1:06 left in the first half. The two-time high school state champion, whose father was an Auburn quarterback, clutched the game ball during interviews. A controversial field goal with 1-second left on the clock. We tried to put the defense back in.

Jones finished 26-of-39 passing for 335 yards and four touchdowns. Whitlow ran for 115 yards.

Quarterback Mac Jones, who replaced injured star Tua Tagovailoa, scrambled for 18 yards on fourth-and-7 to get the Tide into easier field goal range.
