The 2013 college football season provided us with a lot of memorable moments, however it’s hard to argue that the most memorable one was provided by Auburn Tigers kick returner and defensive back, Chris Davis.
With the famous Iron Bowl against the Alabama Crimson Tide looking as if it was set to go into overtime following a missed field goal by Alabama with time expiring, Davis fielded the short kick and raced 109 yards down the field for the winning score; sending Auburn to the SEC Championship Game, followed by an appearance in the BCS National Championship Game.
Not only is that one of the biggest plays in the history of Auburn Football, but it’s one of the most exciting plays in the entire storied history of the game of college football.
So it’s only natural that the Tigers would want to commemorate that moment, especially with all of the recruits piling into campus this weekend for “Big Cat Weekend.”
That’s exactly what the Auburn grounds crew did on Friday in preparation for the event as they painted the entire path that Davis took on that amazing play, from start to finish.

There’s nothing like showing that to recruits and asking them if they want to play on the field where one of the most historical plays in the history of college football took place.
