(0:00 – 4th) Auburn wins the Iron Bowl, 48-45.
(8:08 – 4th) Shivers with the 11 yard touchdown. Auburn answers back (again) TD + 2-pt conversion! Alabama 45, Auburn 48.
(13:44 – 4th) I mean- is there anything left to say in this game?!?!? Jaylen Waddle 4 TDs now. Obviously the feeling is now “last team with the ball wins.” — Chris Breece
(0:49 – 3rd) 40-38, Auburn takes back the lead with a field goal.
(4:57 – 3rd) Iron Bowl going in full blown WTF mode after an Auburn pick six…again. Mac Jones comes back as if it never happened (twice). Alabama up 38-37. — Chris Breece
(6:31 – 3rd) PICK 6! Mac Jones pass intercepted for a TD Zakoby McClain return for 100 yards for a TD! 36-31, Tigers take the lead.
(11:49 – 3rd) It may not have been a TD drive- but Auburn got what they needed on that transition. Start with a 3 and out, then get points. Alabama 31, Auburn 30. — Chris Breece
(0:00 – 2nd) Halftime 31-27: No matter who you root for- Alabama just got screwed out of 3 points. Because they stopped the clock for review it gave Auburn a chance to run up and get set. There would have been no chance to do that if they let the play go. — Chris Breece
(0:01 – 2nd) At the half, Alabama 31, Auburn 24: Honest question (I know there was a KR TD) but if Tua was playing, how many points would you have guessed Alabama would have at the half? Against a defense whose most points they gave up all year was 24. –– Chris Breece
(1:06 – 2nd) Neither Auburn nor Alabama are letting their foot off the gas! Nix’s pass is complete to Sal Cannella for 14 yards for a Touchdown! 24-24, TIED!
(4:12 – 2nd) Bama makes a play on the fumble recovery. Mac Jones pass complete to Henry Ruggs III for 3 yards for a TD.
(5:22 – 2nd) Jaylen Waddle KR for TD: And just like that- why is the Iron Bowl awesome? Just like what AUBURN needed to help their offense- Alabama gets something to help THEIR offense. — Chris Breece
Smoke Monday picks off Mac Jones and returns it for touchdown. Auburn leads Alabama, 17-10. First “bad decision” we’ve really seen Jones make today… he’s been seemingly calm and depending on his play makers to this point. — Simone Eli
(5:36 – 2nd) Smoke Monday INT for TD: If the Auburn offense needed ANY help at all- that was the one thing they could have asked most for. What a turn of events. — Chris Breece
(7:04 – 2nd) 7 min left in 2nd; Even though Auburn punts – Nix made some nice plays, which should be encouraging
(10:16 – 2nd) Touchdown Alabama 10-7. We knew the key for the Tide would be redzone trips and getting 6 points, not 3. — Chris Breece
Najee Harris finds the end zone and now has 91 yards rushing on the day. — Simone Eli
(0:00 – 1st) End of the 1st quarter-one thing is clear. This game will go down to the final few possessions. — Chris Breece
(2:07 – 1st) That’s a Gus Malzahn offense, right there. Get the QB to be a threat with his legs. Bo Nix does exactly that. 7-3 Auburn. — Chris Breece
(3:05 – 1st) Big punt return by Christian Tutt is exactly what Auburn needs to score points with an inexperienced offense. They need to convert this drive, though. — Chris Breece
(5:30 – 1st) Mac Jones took a HIT after that run for first down. Derrick Brown had a couple words for him afterwards. Jones won’t forget that one for a minute… — Simone Eli
(6:57 – 1st) Nothing comes from Auburn’s second offensive drive. Alabama defense getting good pressure on Bo Nix, forcing him out of the pocket. — Simone Eli
Both teams very even so far. Both drive down the field but stall a drive. In for a dog fight. — Chris Breece
(8:27 – 1st) Auburn defense “bend don’t break” on the first Alabama offensive drive…. Najee Harris running like a GROWN MAN early. Tide up 3-0. — Simone Eli
(10:54 – 1st) AUBURN Penalty, Substitution Infraction (5 Yards) to the Alab 46 for a 1ST down
(14:55 – 1st) Bo Nix completes pass for 13 yards to Anthony Schwarz, who fumbles — recovered by Aub Shedrick Jackson for a 1st down
