Auburn is a team of destiny.
It’s a clichéd statement used to explain a team’s improbable run to a championship, but there is no other way to describe how Auburn now finds itself in the SEC title game and one step away from potentially playing for a BCS national championship after a come-from-behind 34-28 win over top-ranked Alabama on Saturday.
For the second consecutive game, Auburn had a miracle play in the final seconds of the game to snatch a victory away from its opponent. Two weeks ago, it was a deflected Hail Mary for the game-winning touchdown. On Saturday, tied with rival Alabama as time expired, it was a 100-yard return (unofficially 109 yards) by Chris Davis off a missed 57-yard field goal.
