The Auburn Tigers got a miraculous win over their rivals, the Alabama Crimson Tide. Alabama lined up for a 57-yard field goal with one second left and a chance to win the game. The kick was short and it was caught by Auburn cornerback Chris Davis who returned it 109 yards for a touchdown.
“We’re a team of destiny,” Davis said, via ESPN. “We won’t take no for an answer.”
“I knew when I caught the ball I would have room to run,” Davis said. “I knew they would have big guys on the field to protect on the field goal. When I looked back, I said, ‘I can’t believe this.’ ”
It was an incredible play and has become a part of college football history. The play is also now a part of Tecmo Bowl history thanks to some YouTuber who recreated the stunning and incredible game-winning play.
“It was a great game,” Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron said. “Sometimes luck just isn’t on your side.
“It’s one of those crazy plays. It’s almost like a video game. That’s something you do on Madden or NCAA. It’s just a wild play.”
Well, now it is a video game play. I miss Tecmo Bowl.
