Lynch, Memphis Top BYU 55-48 In Miami Beach Bowl

 

 

 

 

 

” They battled for 60 minutes, then again for two overtimes and literally fought after the final play.

  And for Memphis, the end result was a win 76 years in the making.

  Paxton Lynch threw four touchdown passes and rushed for three more scores, Jake Elliott kicked a 54-yard field goal to end the first extra session and Memphis wasted a pair of double-digit leads before rallying to beat BYU 55-48 in the inaugural Miami Beach Bowl on Monday.

” It wasn’t always pretty,” Memphis coach Justin Fuente said.

  After DaShaughn Terry sealed the win by picking off BYU quarterback Christian Stewart in the second OT, tensions and emotions took over. Dozens of people from both sidelines spilled toward the middle of the field, many punching and grabbing. Cameras caught BYU defensive back Kai Nacua — who had blood streaming from his face — coming from behind to punch in the head Memphis tight end Alan Cross, who was being restrained by someone from the Tigers’ staff. “

‘No One Gave Up’: Auburn Players Say They’ll Be Back

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” It was a locker room that Ricardo Louis didn’t want to see, not after Auburn kept coming back, not after the Tigers fell just short in a 41-38 loss to Texas A&M.
 
” Some people with their heads down, some people encouraging others. But at the end of the day, we’ll just come together as a team as we always do,” Louis said Saturday night.
 
  Auburn fumbled twice late in the game in Jordan-Hare Stadium, losing both, and losing a chance at victory. Auburn fell to 7-2 overall and 4-2 in the SEC. 
 
” It’s a tough pill to swallow,” Louis said. “We have a whole bunch of winners on this team, and losing is always a bad feeling.”
 
” We’re a championship team,” said receiver Quan Bray. “We still believe in that.” “

” Auburn, which had mastered the late comeback win the last two years, saw the tables turned with the late miscues. Louis was seemingly involved in another comeback when quarterback Nick Marshall connected with him for a long pass, but, a short time later, Auburn fumbled on the 3 with 2½ minutes left. Auburn turned it over again at the 29 with less than a minute to play on a bad snap.
 
” We were going to win the game,” Bray said.
  Only last week, Auburn beat Ole Miss in a similar fashion when the Tigers made the play that forced Laquon Treadwell to fumble just before he crossed the goal line with just over a minute to play. Auburn won that won 35-31. Not this time, even though Auburn’s defense allowed only six points in the second half.”

‘Uncharacteristic’ Penalties Hurt Auburn, But Tigers Find Way

 

 

 

 

 

 

” In the end, the Tigers’ 13 penalties didn’t cost them as dearly as first feared. Kris Frost forced a fumble near the goal line and Cassanova McKinzy recovered it in the end zone in the final minutes to help secure a 35-31 victory at Ole Miss on Saturday.

  Still, the penalties bothered the Tigers during and after the game.”

” ” Pretty uncharacteristic of us,” Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said. “We’ve got to do better in the future, but we’ll correct that, and we’ll address that. Our guys overcame it and they found a way to win.”

  The game-deciding drive was set up by some great plays by Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace and a pair of bad penalties by the Tigers: a personal foul on the punt return and defensive hold on cornerback Jonathon Mincy gave the Rebels 25 free yards.

  Auburn’s 13 penalties were the most since a 30-23 loss at Florida in overtime in 2002. “

What They’re Saying About Auburn’s 42-35 Victory Against South Carolina

 

 

 

 

 

” Auburn kept its SEC championship hopes alive, but it wasn’t easy Saturday night against South Carolina.

  Steve Spurrier was in a gambling mood in Jordan-Hare Stadium, and for the most part his play calls worked. Luckily for Auburn, its defense stood tall in the fourth quarter and the Tigers held on for a 42-35 victory.

  It was an entertaining game, even if Auburn fans are probably checking their heart rates this morning.

  As you wait for the new rankings to be released this afternoon, check out what they’re saying across the country about Auburn after its 42-35 victory:

” It was a wild, wild game, and Auburn’s Nick Marshall, Cameron Artis-Payne and Ricardo Louis needed every yard, every foot, of their monster offensive performances Saturday night to beat South Carolina 42-35 in Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Artis-Payne, the tailback, and Louis, a receiver, each rushed for more than 100 yards and Marshall accounted for four touchdowns and more than 200 total yards as the Tigers smashed their way to 551 yards of offense in a see-saw game that ended with Auburn on top.

Auburn didn’t take the lead until the third quarter, then didn’t take the lead for good until the fourth. South Carolina threw in the end zone on the game’s final play. The pass was intercepted.

When the yards were tallied, a whopping total of 1,086 of them with 55 first downs, Auburn improved to 6-1 overall and 3-1 in the Southeastern Conference. South Carolina fell to 4-4 overall and 2-4 in the league.

The No. 5 Tigers will likely move up in the national rankings as well after LSU beat No. 3 Ole Miss 10-7. Auburn will play the Rebels in Oxford next Saturday.

This Saturday, there were tricks plays and determined efforts. The Gamecocks converted their first five fourth-down tries, but missed on one critical one on a throw in the end zone in the fourth quarter. Carolina had the ball as the game ended, or until Jonathan Jones intercepted the final last throw.

” They went for everything and they got just about everything. They executed when they had to,” said Auburn’s Gus Malzahn.

Auburn took its first lead at 28-21 in the third, on a 5-yard Marshall touchdown run. South Carolina tied it right back up less than two minutes later when Dylan Thompson hit a streaking Pharoh Cooper on a 51-yard scoring play.

The Tigers were unfazed. Louis raced 75 yards for a touchdown a few seconds later. By then, Auburn had 440 yards, of which a whopping 340 came on the ground, with 7:29 left in the third quarter. 

 
  Auburn led 35-28. Until South Carolina tied it again on a Dylan Thompson-to-Nick Jones touchdown pass with 2:20 left in the third quarter.
 
  Artis-Payne rushed for 167 yards on 25 carries and Louis had 102 yards on three carries. Marshall was 12-of-14 passing for 139 yards, and rushed for 89 yards and three touchdowns.
 
  It was an offensive night, for sure. The two teams combined for 894 yards through the first three quarters.
 
  South Carolina was on the doorstep of another score until Jonathan Jones intercepted Thompson in the end zone with 13:17 remaining. Two minutes later, Marshall was scoring on a 9-yard run for a 42-35 Auburn lead.
 
  It was a wild first half, with South Carolina going for it, and making it, on fourth down on a touchdown drive; with a blocking tight end catching his first pass in a year for an Auburn touchdown; and with third-string quarterback Jonathan Wallace catching a toss from Marshall then throwing back to Marshall with his first pass since last season for a 17-yard gain.
 
  Oh, yeah. There were those equally-divided 42 first-half points with Auburn averaging 8.1 yards a snap and South Carolina averaging 7.6.
 
  South Carolina led 7-0, 14-7 and 21-14. Each time, Auburn had an answer, mixing in the pass with a strong running game to match the Gamecocks every step of the way.
 
  South Carolina was first up, scoring on its first drive when Dylan Thompson threw a 32-yard touchdown pass to Shaq Rolland. Auburn tied it when Marshall hit Brandon Fulse with a 3-yard TD pass, his first catch since last year late in the first quarter.
 
  Carolina went back up when Thompson hit Cooper with a 16-yard TD pass. Auburn countered with a 2-yard touchdown run by Cameron Artis-Payne. The Tigers then held Carolina, but Quan Bray fumbled after a nice punt return to set up the Gamecocks for a 27-yard touchdown pass from Thompson to Mike Davis.
 
  That made it South Carolina 21-14 with 5:05 left in the second quarter. Auburn came back with the Marshall-to-Wallace-to-Marshall trickery, then Marshall raced 37 yards up the middle for a touchdown to tie the game 21-21 with 2:35 left in the half.
 
  The teams got there in different ways. Auburn had 277 yards, 203 of which game running. South Carolina had 267 yards, 211 via the pass. “

Nick Marshall Does It All In Auburn’s Win Over LSU

 

 

 

 

 

” He had his play from the sideline, but when Nick Marshall spotted man-to-man coverage on Sammie Coates, the Auburn quarterback changed things up.
 
  Touchdown, Auburn.
 
  The 56-yard touchdown to Coates was part of an impressive performance by Marshall, who accounted for four touchdowns in the first half to help Auburn beat LSU 41-7 Saturday night in Jordan-Hare Stadium.
 
  Nick Marshall was the Nick Marshall of old, running the zone-read, darting up the middle on draw plays, throwing long to the likes of Coates. Auburn turned its quarterback loose, and that helped Auburn sprint away to a 31-7 halftime lead.
 
” We let him throw the ball a little bit earlier in the game,” said coach Gus Malzahn. “He is an outstanding quarterback. He wins. I think everyone saw he can throw it pretty well, too.”
 
  The early passing “helped me a lot,” Marshall said. “The receivers made a lot of plays. That gave me a lot of confidence.”
 
  Marshall was 14-of-22 passing for 207 yards with that 56-yard touchdown pass to Coates and a 9-yard touchdown pass to C.J. Uzomah. He rushed for 119 yards with touchdown runs of 29 and 7 yards. Auburn’s 566 yards were a school record against LSU.
 
  Marshall inflated those numbers with his second 200-yard passing, 100-yard rushing game of his career. His 119 rushing yards gave him seven 100-yard career rushing games, the school record for a quarterback. “

Auburn Tigers 20, Kansas State Wildcats 14: Suddenly, The Tigers Look Mortal

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The Tigers beat Kansas State on Thursday night, but it didn’t look pretty. Could Auburn’s luck finally be running out?

  Here’s the important thing: Auburn went on the road on a Thursday night and beat a Top 20 team. If the Tigers do well in the SEC schedule and are somehow in a battle for a playoff seed or a bowl seeded by the selection committee, the game Thursday night should play in their favor. And, of course, winning is always better than the alternative.

  But all of that said, the Tigers sure looked human tonight. Not that last year’s MacGyvered perfect regular season didn’t have plenty of opposing fans thinking that Auburn could be beaten this year. But the game against Kansas State seemed like the first piece of concrete evidence that the Tigers could be had, particularly if the Wildcats‘ offense or defense could have played a little better.

  What was most troubling was that the vaunted running game, the thing that powered Auburn during last year’s run to the national championship game, was perhaps the most mortal part of the Tigers’ team. Auburn gained a total of 128 yards on 45 rushing attempts — an average of 2.8 yards a carry. The big-play ability that the Tigers showed in 2013 was also lacking. According to cfbstats.com, Auburn had a per-game average of 10.5 rushing plays of 10 or more yards last season. According to the play-by-play from the Kansas State game, the Tigers had three Thursday night.”

Auburn Routs San Jose State

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Cameron Artis-Payne ran for three touchdowns as No. 5 Auburn routed San Jose State, 59-13, on Saturday night.

  After San Jose State’s Tyler Ervin tip-toed the left sideline en route to a 75-yard touchdown reception that tied the game at 7-7 midway through the first quarter, Auburn ripped off 28 unanswered points and never looked back.

  Artis-Payne carried the ball 16 times for 112 yards, while Nick Marshall was 10-of-19 for 101 yards with a touchdown and added 103 yards and a score on the ground for the Tigers (2-0), who defeated Arkansas last Saturday.”

 

 

 

AU - SJSU

 

 

 

 

” We are excited to be 2-0 with a tin at home,” said Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn. “Our crowd was unbelievable again.”

  Auburn ran for 358 yards in the triumph.

  Blake Jurich completed 16-of-27 passes for 218 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions for San Jose State (1-1), which beat North Dakota in its opener.

  Artis-Payne capped off an 8-play, 60-yard drive with a 2-yard TD plunge and after Jermaine Whitehead intercepted Blake Jurich on a 3rd-and-20 from the Auburn 45, he ran in from five yards out on a 4th-and-1 to give the Tigers a 21-7 lead early in the second.”

Phillip Marshall: Looking Ahead, The Auburn Defense

 

 

” Statistically, it wasn’t the best of years for Auburn’s defense under first-year coordinator Ellis Johnson. But in reality, it was a very good year. And based on the players returning, there is reason to expect next year to be better.

  The Tigers were among the nation’s best in the red zone. And they were at their best when it mattered most in most games. The final drive withstanding, the BCS Championship Game against Florida State was probably their best performance of the season. One touchdown came on a kickoff return and another after a fake punt. They forced seven three-and-outs.

  The defensive line and linebackers improved dramatically over the course of the season. The secondary coped with injuries and preseason loss of projected starting safety Demetruce McNeal.

  Following is a position-position-by position look at returning players. We are not able to mention the names of incoming recruits.”

War Eagle !

 

 

 

 

 

” The Auburn football team that came within 13 seconds of the national championship last Monday bore little resemblance to the one that huffed and puffed to beat Washington State in the opener or the one that had to score with 10 seconds left to beat Mississippi State at home or the one that lost at LSU.

  Perhaps the most remarkable thing about a remarkable Auburn season was how much the Tigers of 2013 improved day to day and game to game. And as we move forward toward the culmination of the recruiting cycle, offseason workouts, spring practice and finally the 2014 season, Auburn is back among college football’s elite.

  Gus Malzahn, in his first season, left little doubt he is something special as a head football coach. And he has some special players returning.

  Does Auburn have the talent to play for a national championship again in 2014? No doubt, but so do Alabama, LSU, Georgia and others in the still dominant Southeastern Conference. The challenge Auburn players face is to come together and work and play with the same passion that took the 2013 Tigers to the SEC championship and beyond.

  It will be the first season of a new era. Auburn and Florida State finished off the BCS era. We now enter the playoff era. Four teams instead of two will be in the big show. They’ll be chosen by a selection committee instead of a ranking system.”

Tre Mason

 

 

” Tre Mason finished the season as well as any player in college football, and he hopes to carry that momentum to the next level.

  The junior running back announced Thursday that he will forgo his senior season at Auburn and declare for May’s NFL draft. 

  Auburn junior running back Tre Mason led the SEC and was fifth nationally with 1,816 yards rushing. 

” It’s been my dream since I was young, and I’m a dream chaser,” Mason said. “I’m just trying to make a dream into a reality.”

  Mason, who said he was given a third-round grade by the league’s draft advisory committee, led the SEC and was fifth nationally with 1,816 yards rushing.”

Meanwhile at the Sugar Bowl

 

” A female American football fan took the tackling into the stands on Thursday night when she attacked a male fan at the Sugar Bowl between Alabama and Oklahoma. Michelle Pritchett, who supports Alabama, was caught on camera diving over other members of the crowd to get to Oklahoma fan Michael Connolly. The victim of the attack later tweeted that Pritchett is a mother of three and that her children were in attendance at the Superdome in New Orleans.”

” No. 10 Michigan State 34, No. 2 Ohio State 24 | Full Recap

Michigan State blew a 17-0 lead and trailed Ohio State 24-17 in the third quarter, but Sparty fought back to take the lead. Jeremy Langford’s 26-yard touchdown run in the final minutes sealed the upset victory for Michigan State, eliminating the Buckeyes from the BCS Championship race.”

 

” No. 1 Florida State 45, No. 20 Duke 7 | Full Recap

Duke held Florida State scoreless through the first quarter of the ACC Championship Game, but it was all Seminoles from there. Jameis Winston connected with Kelvin Benjamin on a 14-yard fade route on the Seminoles’ first possession of the second quarter, and Florida State never looked back. FSU out-gained the Blue Devils 569 to 239 to win the ACC handily and will play Auburn in the BCS National Championship.”

Listen To Auburn Play-By-Play Announcer Rod Bramblett’s Call From The Iron Bowl

 

 

” In case you somehow missed it, on Saturday night Auburn upset Alabama with a last-minute touchdown by Chris Davis off of a missed field goal. Here’s how longtime Auburn play-by-play announcer Rod Bramblett called the play: “

A play and a call for the ages … what excitement … what a thrill … WAR EAGLE !!!

Auburn Celebrates Win Over ‘Bama In Wild Finish

Final Score 34-28

” Auburn might not be the center of the college football world most days, but it felt like it was Saturday as the Tigers beat Alabama in one of the wildest finishes ever.

Thousands of Auburn fans stormed the field after ‘Bama missed a desperation field goal and Chris Davis returned it 100 yards for a touchdown to give No. 4 Auburn an improbable, 34-28 victory over No. 1 Alabama and seemingly end the Crimson Tide’s bid for a third-straight national championship.

So many Auburn fans raced onto the field afterward that grass was barely visible from the top of Jordan-Hare Stadium. They needled ‘Bama by singing its familiar “Rammer Jammer” cheer after the stunning end.”

”  The first Iron Bowl game played took place on February 22, 1893 at Lakeview Baseball Park in Birmingham . Despite many rough years to come, Auburn walked away the victor of that game beating Alabama 32-22. This is where the disagreements and hostility began. Alabama considered this game to be the last game of the 1892 season, where Auburn considered it the first game of the 1893 season.  Even then, the two teams could not reach an agreement, which leads to 1907.

  Alabama and Auburn went head to head for the last time until 1948. Shortly after the tied game of 1907, the two teams were combating off the field in negotiations over finances and setting a date. In 1908 the two teams tried to save the series. Alabama proposed a new contract for the match-up to Auburn , who accepted a compromise contract that ended up pleasing both teams. However, just like the Hatfields and McCoys, an agreement could not be made that easy. “

 

 

Enjoy the game and may the best Tigers win … WAR EAGLE !!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

UNBELIEVABLE FINISH IN AUBURN’S 43-38 WIN VS. GEORGIA

Hail Mary Auburn

Click pic to see Nick Marshall's Hail Mary throw & Ricardo Louis' AMAZING reception

AUBURN, Ala. — ” Auburn’s magical season continued Saturday with a big whew, an unbelievable catch and a one-for-the-ages 43-38 win over Georgia.
 
Nick Marshall’s 78-yard touchdown pass to Ricardo Louis with 25 seconds brought home a thrilling victory. The pass? It bounced off a Georgia defender and Louis caught it in stride racing to the end zone.
 
Whew? Whew. Auburn dominated the first half and enjoyed a nice lead in the third quarter. But Georgia threw a scare in the Tigers in the fourth quarter. Auburn survived, beating Georgia in the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry, and setting the stage for a big Iron Bowl game in Jordan-Hare Stadium on Nov. 30.
 
Auburn led 37-17 in the fourth quarter. Georgia closed fast, scoring 21 points in a seven-minute span in the fourth quarter.
 
Auburn improved to 10-1 overall and 6-1 in the SEC. Alabama is next.”
