Twitter reacts to Auburn's epic win over Alabama

Twitter reacts to Auburn's epic win over Alabama”

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.

In what was another memorable Iron Bowl, the Auburn Tigers defeated the Alabama Crimson Tide 48-45.

Alabama's Mac Jones threw a disgusting pass midway through the second quarter against Auburn that resulted in a pick-six for Smoke Monday.

Alabama was going to get the ball back with about a minute left, but was called for a too many men on the field as the Auburn offense stayed on for the 4th and 4 play.

Auburn then tied the game with a 43-yard Anders Carlson field goal, then took the lead when Smoke Monday snared a Jones overthrow and raced 29 yards for a score, putting the Tigers up 17-10 with 5:36 left in the first half.

The second-highest scoring Iron Bowl in series history had viewers on the edge of their seats and ended with Auburn fans storming the field. Auburn scored a pair of defensive touchdowns in the win.

The 5-foot-7, 179-pound Shivers delivered on his only carry. Shivers smashed into Xavier McKinney, knocking the safety's helmet off on the way to the end zone.

Up 48-45 with 1:17 to go, Auburn was facing a fourth down from their own 26-yard line. The ball bounced off the back of tailback Najee Harris and into McClain's arms, setting up a sprint down the sideline.

Auburn: The defense was uncharacteristically vulnerable but also delivered big plays. Harris lead all runners with 94 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries.

Emotions flared up a couple of times in the third quarter.

Over the last five years, Alabama and New England have never won a title in the same season.
