Breaking down the Iron Bowl

In the moments following Auburn's 48-45 victory over the Alabama Crimson Tide, a woman attempted to rush the field. It didn't matter that Malzahn's offense had a poor track record in big games this season.

Alabama's Mac Jones threw a disgusting pass midway through the second quarter against Auburn that resulted in a pick-six for Smoke Monday.

After a 24-yard Diggs kick return and a 4-yard completion to Jerry Jeudy, Waddle did the rest, catching the ball shy of the Auburn 45 and then weaved through the secondary for his second touchdown of the quarter, putting Alabama back ahead 31-24 with 33 seconds left in the first half.

Meanwhile, Alabama quarterback Mac Jones completed 26 of 39 for 335 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions, both of which were returned by Auburn for touchdowns.

Auburn (9-3, 5-3 Southeastern Conference) survived a final Crimson Tide drive when Joseph Bulovas's 30-yard field goal attempt hit the left upright with 2:00 left.

The 5-foot-7-inch, 179-pound Shivers, who was playing the role of injured wide receiver Anthony Schwartz, delivered on his only carry. Shivers smashed into Xavier McKinney, knocking the safety's helmet off on the way to the end zone.

Smoke Monday returned another one 29 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter. Bo Nix's two-point pass to Shedrick Jackson made it 48-45. Harris lead all runners with 94 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries. Whitlow and Alabama were flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct for one altercation.

Over the last five years, Alabama and New England have never won a title in the same season.

Auburn awaits a possibly better bowl destination than it expected coming into the game.
