Iron Bowl 2013: Auburn hero Chris Davis tweeted a year ago about wanting to be on special teams


In what was arguably the greatest edition of the Iron Bowl, the Auburn Tigers shocked the number-one ranked Alabama Crimson Tide at home inside Jordan-Hare Stadium with no time left on the clock.

This came about after the Tide missed a 50+ yard field goal, which Chris Davis returned 100 yards the other way for the game-winning score, putting him into the history books forever.

Davis proved that special teams are maybe the most important part of any football team, because you never know when that particular unit may decide a ball game.

Apparently–and in one of the most eerie coincidences ever–Davis knew this, as he tweeted one year ago about how he wanted to be a part of the Auburn special teams unit:

Well, now. How’s that for a premonition?
