‘Nobody panicked,’ Chandler Wooten describes watching Auburn’s game-winning drive

·1 min read

Auburn’s final offensive drive against Georgia State was certainly stressful.

However, the Tigers kept their cool and maintained composure on a 98-yard drive that ended in a touchdown throw from TJ Finley to Shedrick Jackson, giving Auburn the lead with less than a minute remaining.

Chandler Wooten joined Zac Blackerby on the “Locked on Auburn podcast” and described how calm he and his team were watching Auburn drive 98 yards down the field to score the go-ahead touchdown.

Wooten: I realized with two or three minutes left that this was probably the last opporunity of the game for (the offense). The defnese had just gotten another third-down stop, and I remember coming back on the sidelines and just being calm. Nobody panicked. We all had a sense of calmness on the sideline, just knowing that it was time for (the offense) to make some plays. And the drive started with a nice run, and they continued to pick u steam for there. We just watched them continue to convert third downs. We knew something special was going to happen. It was incredibly exciting to watch.
