I was watching the 2013 Iron Bowl on Saturday like many other people across Alabama were. I thought Alabama was going to have their way and win the game again until the last minute of the game. First, Auburn scored a touchdown to tie the game. Then Alabama got the ball back and got to mid-field. Nick Saban lobbied the officials to put 1 second back on the clock, and the rest is history. Yes folks, one second can mean everything in football!
Kudos for Gus Malzahn and the Auburn Tigers for winning the 2013 Iron Bowl. Most sports analysts in Alabama picked Alabama to win the game. But a few did pick Auburn in the upset, including me. I had a feeling early Saturday morning that somehow Auburn was going to pull off the upset. Then I made my latest Southern Geek video, and the rest is history!
I need to let you know about this, on Monday December 9th, Auburn coach Gus Malzahn will be speaking at the TV 24 Pigskin Roundup All Star Banquet at Word Alive Church in Oxford, AL. If you want to see the coach fresh off the SEC Championship Game, tickets are $20 each. To get tickets, call 256-831-4624 or visit their offices on US 78 East in Oxford.

Congrats Auburn for then crazy win. The entire state was shocked by the final result! I hope the Auburn Tigers will bring the BCS Crystal Ball back to Alabama once again. But if Florida State and Ohio State are in the BCS Championship Game, I hope Ohio State wins since I am from Ohio. I will leave you with some crazy fan reactions from the game!
