Chris Davis raced 100 plus yards with a missed field goal attempt for a touchdown on the final play to lift No. 4 Auburn to a 34 28 victory over No.
Just a year ago, the Auburn Tigers won all of three games and fired their coach. Just a year ago, the Missouri Tigers looked very much like a school that had no business joining the mighty Southeastern Conference.
Well, look at the matchup for Saturday championship game.
Tigers vs. Tigers.
"We playing a very good Missouri team that very similar to us," Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said. "I think about both teams being very hungry. We were both kind of down at the bottom at the start of www.nflfalconsofficial.com/Nike-Sean-Weatherspoon-Jersey.html the year. But we improved. I feel like we improved each game. They would probably say the same thing."
Indeed, that exactly what Missouri coach Gary Pinkel says.
"We just kept getting better," he said Sunday. "Our kids played hard every single game at a very high level. I been around a lot of good football teams, but I rarely been around a team like that, playing at the level they did on a consistent basis."
No. 3 Auburn (11 1, 7 1 SEC) earned its trip to Atlanta with one of the most remarkable victories in college football history, returning a missed field goal 109 yards for the winning touchdown on the final play to beat two time defending national champion Alabama 34 28. (Somehow, these Tigers managed to surpass their previous Miracle on the Plains, the 2 week old "Immaculate Deflection" victory over Georgia.)
Meanwhile, fifth ranked Missouri (11 1, 7 1) locked up the SEC East by holding off Texas A Joplo Bartu Kids Jersey and reigning Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel 28 21 on Saturday, showing off a stout defense that helped push those Tigers to the top of the division in a year when traditional powerhouses Georgia and Florida were plagued by injuries and failed to meet expectations.
What a change from Missouri debut season in the nflfalconsofficial.com/Nike-Jacquizz-Rodgers-Jersey.html SEC, when Pinkel team went 5 7 and won just two conference games after moving over from the Big 12.
"I thought we would have a very good football team," he insisted. "But we could have been a very good football team and not be sitting here 11 1, either."
For all the giddiness in Auburn and Missouri, their remarkable turnarounds could actually work against the SEC Joplo Bartu Red Jersey extending its already unprecedented streak of seven straight national titles. Formerly top ranked Alabama slipped to fourth in all three of the major polls, replaced at the top by Florida State. The only other unbeaten team from a major conference, Ohio State, moved up to second.
If the Seminoles defeat surprising Duke in the Atlantic Coast Conference title game, as expected, and Ohio State stays perfect with a victory over Michigan State in the Big Ten championship game, those teams would likely meet for the BCS title.
Auburn isn giving up, though, already lobbying for a spot in Pasadena if it knocks off Missouri at the Georgia Dome.
"I feel like we are destined to finish very strong," safety Jermaine Whitehead said.
Missouri believe it deserves a shot at the national title if it beats Auburn.
"Any one loss team in the SEC (should be considered) just because of the strength of schedule," Pinkel said. "Hopefully that will be taken into consideration."
Auburn 3 9 season led to the firing of coach Gene Chizik two years after winning a national championship.
