AUBURN, Ala. — Not that it will make Georgia feel any better. But that last-minute, fourth-down, heave-it-to-the-heavens-pass-and-let-it-bounce-off-a-defender-to-a-receiver touchdown that buried the Bulldogs two weeks ago just became a relative afterthought in Auburn’s season.
Also, Nick Saban was being second-guessed Saturday.
Really, outside of that, it was a perfectly normal day on the Plains, where Alabama lost, Auburn won and unicorns frolicked.
One season removed from going 0-8 in the SEC and firing its coach, Gene Chizik, Auburn completed a miracle finish to the conference title game.
