Nick Marshall and Ricardo Louis saved the Auburn Tigers from an epic collapse against the Georgia Bulldogs in a hotly-contested SEC showdown. Coach Gus Malzahn’s squad played dominant football for three quarters. In the fourth quarter, however, the wheels came off.
Georgia scored 21 unanswered points in the final stanza, and, with 1:49 left, Auburn found themselves staring at a potentially crippling defeat. On their final drive, the Tigers’ offense still couldn’t gain any traction. A third down sack left Auburn 36 seconds from heartbreak.
On fourth down Auburn needed a miracle. Then the heavens opened, and a prayer was answered on The Plains. Nick Marshall hit Ricardo Louis for a 73-yard tip drill touchdown. It was the Miracle from Marshall, as the fans in Jordan Hare erupted.
