Auburn defeats Alabama with miracle finish

Chris Davis ran a missed field goal back 109 yards with no time left on the clock to lift Auburn past Alabama 34-28 in the Iron Bowl. 

The play was on pace to never even occur, the clock had expired and it appeared the game would go to overtime. Alabama head coach Nick Saban lobbied for one second to be put on the clock after feeling T.J. Yeldon ran out of bounds at the Auburn 38 yard line before the clock hit zero. A replay confirmed his case. Ironically, Saban's challenge cost him the game. Adam Griffith's 57 yard field goal came up just short and Davis returned it for the game winning score.

The victory could launch Ohio State into to the National Championship game, provided they win next week against Michigan State.
