Rankings from AP Poll[1]

The 2013 Auburn Tigers football team represented Auburn University in the 2013 NCAA Division I FBS football season. The team was coached by Gus Malzahn, who was in his first season as head coach at Auburn, although he served as offensive coordinator from 2009–2011. The Tigers played their home games at Jordan–Hare Stadium in Auburn, Alabama and competed in the Western Division of the Southeastern Conference (SEC).[2]

The 2013 season saw one of the biggest single-season turnarounds in college football history. Only a year after their worst season in 60 years—including only their third winless record in SEC play—the Tigers won their eighth SEC title and third of the championship game era, tallying a record of 12–2 (7–1 in SEC play).

Preseason[edit]

After Gene Chizik's termination on November 25, 2012, Athletic Director Jay Jacobs formed a search committee headed by former Auburn Heisman Trophy winners Bo Jackson and Pat Sullivan along with fellow former player Mac Crawford to find the program's next head coach. The committee unanimously selected Arkansas State University head coach Gus Malzahn. On December 4, 2012 it was officially announced that Malzahn would assume the position of head coach at Auburn University.

On April 20, 2013, Auburn played their Spring game, known as the A-day game. 83,401 people attended the game at Jordan-Hare Stadium, breaking the previous record of 63,217 set in 2010.[3]

The #7 Auburn Tigers hosted the #25 Georgia Bulldogs in Auburn. Auburn led 37–17 in the 4th quarter, but Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray led the Bulldogs to three straight touchdowns to take the lead 38–37 with less than 2 minutes to go. On 4th and 18, Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall, who was a defensive back for Georgia during the 2011 season, threw a Hail Mary pass, which was tipped by Georgia safety Josh Harvey-Clemons, right into the hands of Auburn sophomore wide receiver Ricardo Louis, scoring the game-winning touchdown with 25 seconds to go. Auburn's defense then held off Murray's late rally to win the game, 43–38.

Rod Bramblett, radio personality and voice of the Auburn Tigers, made the following call:

"Here's your ballgame. Nick Marshall stands in, steps up. Gonna throw down field just a home run ball and, uh, it is tip upped—and Louis caught it on the deflection! Louis is gonna score! Louis is gonna score! Louis is gonna score! Touchdown Auburn! Touchdown Auburn! A miracle in Jordan–Hare! A miracle in Jordan-Hare! 73 yards! And the Tigers with 25 seconds to go lead 43 to 38!"[4]


Alabama[edit]

#1 Alabama0210728
#4 Auburn7771334

In what has been dubbed "Kick Bama Kick" Auburn was looking to avenge two consecutive losses to Alabama. The Tigers had lost 14–42 in 2011 and 0–49 in 2012. Going into the game, Alabama had been ranked atop the polls all season, while Auburn was fourth in all major polls, making this the highest combined ranking ever in the Iron Bowl. Alabama struggled in the field goal kicking game all day, with kicker Cade Foster missing from 44 yards and 33 yards, and having one partially blocked from 44. With seven seconds left in regulation and the score tied at 28, Alabama's T. J. Yeldon made a long run as time expired. The play was reviewed from the replay booth, and one second was put back on the clock after finding Yeldon had actually gone out of bounds just before the end of regulation. Alabama opted to attempt a game-winning 57-yard field goal, but chose Freshman kicker Adam Griffith over Foster due to Foster's woes that day. Alabama missed its fourth field goal of the day with Griffith's attempt falling short. Auburn's Chris Davis fielded it nine yards deep in his own end zone, and with no Crimson Tide skill players in his path (the field goal unit was made up almost entirely of offensive linemen), sprinted for a 109 yard touchdown and a 34–28 Auburn win. Under NCAA scoring rules, Davis was only credited for 100 yards on the play. The win gave the Tigers the SEC West title and completed one of the biggest single-season turnarounds in SEC history; they had gone 0–8 in conference play a year earlier. It also all but ended Alabama's hopes for a third straight national title. With this win, Auburn clinched the SEC West and kept their national championship hopes alive, while putting an end to Alabama's undefeated season and damaging the Crimson Tide's hope for a third straight national championship.

Auburn's offense ran all over Missouri in a back and forth ball game, until Mizzou ran out of gas in the 4th Qtr. Auburn ran for a SEC Title game record of 536 yrds on the ground. RB Tre Mason set all rushing records with 304 yrds on 46 touches with 4 touchdowns. QB Nick Marshall added 101 yrds on the ground. Auburn opened the game with the ball but after a 1st down Marshall was stripped by Koly Ealy setting up Mizzou to go up 3-0. Auburn game right back quickly with a 38 yard strike to WR Sammie Coates for a td. Missouri would ansewer with a 28 yd strike to Dorial Beckham Greene. A catch that was dropped but Auburn never challenged. Auburn quickly ansewered after a 54 yard jailbreak screen to Sammie Coates and a 9 yrd Marshall td run. Koly Ealy would strip Marshall again and CB EJ Gaines would return the fumble for a td to go up 17-14. Auburn marched right down the field and scored on a 7 yard run by Mason. Missouri would kick a field goal to make it 21-20. But Mason took off for a 52 yard run and finished up the scoring drive with a 3 yrd run. Missouri would strike right before the half has Beckham Green got loose to make it 28-27. Missouri would take 34-31 lead in the 3rd qtr but then Auburn took over the game, outscoring them 28-8. Corey Grant would score on an 8 yard run after a 42 yard run by Marshall. Auburn's defense forced a 3 and out and Artis Payne would score on a 15 yrd run. Missouri scored quicked after a 65 yrd run by Henry Josey and completed the two pt conversion to make it 45-42. Auburn struck quick again with a 43 yard run by Grant and 23 yrd pass to Trovon Reed that was capped by 1 yrd td run by Mason. Mason final td run would put the game on ice 59-42. Later that night Michigan St defeated Ohio State making it possible for Auburn to play Florida State for the National Title. Auburn was the lowest rated pre-season team to ever make it to the title. The were not even in the top 50 and critics said they would only win 4 to 6 games.
