(2017) 

 

The Tigers lost a tough game to defending national champion Clemson early on, but with Mississippi State, LSU, Georgia, Texas A&M, and Alabama on their schedule, there is still plenty of football for the to look forward to playing this season.

(JANUARY 1st)

 

Auburn's 2017 season ended with back-to-back losses ........ to Georgia in the SEC Championship Game, and then to undefeated Central Florida in the Peach Bowl.

Auburn isn't just revived, it's flourishing ........ a 56-23 blowout win over Mississippi State has the Tigers roaring with an overall record of 5-0.

(vs. LSU, 10/27/2019)

 

Auburn was the victim of an awful rule in college football late in the 4th quarter of this game.

LSU had the ball and a 3-point lead with 2:32 left to play, and Auburn had no timeouts left. So if LSU ran 3 plays without getting a 1st down (and without stopping the clock by running out of bounds or throwing an incomplete pass), Auburn would have been due to get the ball back with at least 20 or 25 seconds left to play. On 1st down, LSU was called for holding ........ but the clock continued to run after the referees marked off the 10-yard penalty, essentially giving LSU an extra down in terms of running time off of the clock. So they were actually rewarded for that holding penalty, which allowed them to run all of the time off of the clock instead of having to punt the ball back to Auburn on 4th down.

 

In the NFL, in the same situation, the clock stops AND STAYS STOPPED ........ hence, a team which has possession of the ball and a small lead late in the 4th quarter (as did LSU yesterday afternoon) does not get rewarded for committing penalties.

Obviously it’s a stupid rule. The NCAA is full of them. I hope some team abuses it to the point where they have to change it. 
 

That said, it’s not the reason we lost. I’m proud that we hung in there against the best team I’ve seen all year. If our QB could get his nerves together on the road, we’d be 8-0 and staring down the playoffs.

I agree, it's highly unlikely that Auburn would have won the game without that extremely questionable rule. They probably would have gotten the ball back deep in their own territory with only 25 seconds left to play and no timeouts.

It's still very annoying to see it (that rule) play out that way, as it did in the 2003 season Fiesta Bowl between Kansas State and Ohio State.

Malzahn amassed a 68-35 overall record, including going 39-27 in SEC play.

In his first (very memorable) season at Auburn in 2013, he led the Tigers to the National Championship game against Florida State.
