Davis' return lifts Auburn past Bama, 34-28

Posted: Updated:
Auburn, AL -

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. 1 Alabama on Saturday.

Davis caught the ball about 9 yards deep in the end zone after freshman Adam Griffith's 57-yard attempt fell short. He then sprinted down the left sideline and cut back with nothing but teammates around him in a second straight hard-to-fathom finish for the Tigers (11-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference).

Auburn clinched a spot in the SEC championship game with the stunning victory over the two-time defending national champions. The Crimson Tide (11-1, 7-1) seemed at several times poised to continue its run toward the first three-peat in modern college football.

Instead, the Tigers put it away just when overtime seemed their best hope.

Alabama had gotten 1 second and one more play after T.J. Yeldon ran it to Auburn's 39.

That gave the Tide a chance to try to the long field goal -- and now it probably wished it never did.
