Mizzou's L'Damian Washington has the last laugh

Posted: Updated:
Columbia, MO -

Talk about an SEC surprise.

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's championship game.

Tigers vs. Tigers.

No. 3 Auburn (11-1, 7-1 SEC) earned its trip to Atlanta as SEC West champions with one of the most remarkable victories in college football history. Chris Davis returned a missed field goal 109 yards for the winning touchdown on the final play to beat two-time defending national champion Alabama 34-28. Fifth-ranked Missouri (11-1, 7-1) locked up the SEC East by holding off Texas A&M and reigning Heisman winner Johnny Manziel 28-21 on Saturday night.
