Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn celebrates during Iron Bowl win over Alabama in Rivalry Week

Alabama had all the momentum in Saturday’s Iron Bowl against Auburn, up 17-7 in the second quarter. Then, the momentum turned.

The Tigers made a huge special teams play to block a punt, and a few plays later the offense burned the Crimson Tide on a trick-play touchdown.



Suddenly, a game the Tide appeared to have well in hand was in doubt as Alabama’s 10-point lead shrunk to three in the blink of an eye.
