The #3 Auburn Tigers topped the #4 Ole Miss Rebels 35-31 in Week 10 of College Football.
In a high-scoring game with 5 lead changes, three of them in the 2nd half, the game ultimately came down to an incredible Ole Miss fumble at the Auburn 1-yard line.
With less than 4 minutes to go and Auburn leading 35-31, Ole Miss needed a TD. With great starting position at their own 45-yard line, the Rebels were able to drive down to the Auburn 20-yard line. A pass from Ole Miss QB Bo Wallace to WR Laquon Treadwell had the wideout sprinting towards the endzone, but as he approached the goalline he was pulled back from behind and dropped the ball into the endzone but was initially marked as scoring the TD. However after a review of the play the judges ruled that the ball had been dropped at the 1-yard line and been recovered by Auburn, ending the drive and effectively ending the game.
Auburn finished the game with 507 yards of offense, with an almost even split between rushing and passing. QB Nick Marshall didn’t play mistake free, but he contributed 4 of Auburn’s 5 TDs, with two passing and two rushing.
Ole Miss also put on an offensive clinic with Bo Wallace throwing for 341 yards and two TDs, including one TD on the ground. But the offensive line struggled to protect Wallace, giving up 4 sacks on the day.
With the win the Auburn Tigers move to 7-1 on the season and face Texas A&M at home next week.
With the loss, Ole Miss fell to 7-2, their 2nd straight loss, which will all but guarantee that they will be out of the College Football Playoff hunt and likely out of the SEC title hunt as well.
