Forget the Champions League final of 1999 – this is a more thrilling end to a football match as Auburn crush Alabama

by Paul Mallon | December 1, 2013

Watch the new Manchester United film, Class of 92, which climaxes with that incredible Champions League win over Bayern Munich in 1999. It’s great and you’ll think last-gasp drama really doesn’t get much better.

Think again.

This video, from Saturday night’s Iron Bowl, is being hailed as the greatest finish in college football history.

The match is tied at 28 points each.

Alabama freshman Adam Griffith chooses to kick a 57-yard field goal with one second remaining to win the game.

It lands short.

Auburn’s Chris Davis catches the ball 10 yards deep in the end zone. He then peg it down the left to score, running more than 100 yards for a match-winning touchdown and a heart-pounding 34-28 victory.

For more context, Alabama v Auburn is rated as the biggest rivalry in US college sport.

And the incredible moment wasn’t unnoticed on Twitter…

No4 ranked Auburn will represent the SEC West in the SEC Championship Game against Missouri or South Carolina.
