Head coach Nick Saban of the Alabama Crimson Tide looks on in the final minutes of their 48-7 win over the Arkansas Razorbacks at Bryant-Denny Stadium on October 26, 2019 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
Alabama coach Nick Saban deflected questions about the playoffs.
"Well, they said there was one second on the clock", Saban said on the CBS telecast at halftime, "but it's a live clock, so if (officials) chop the clock, there's no way they can snap it and kick it in one second". A controversial field goal with 1-second left on the clock.
It's also worth noting the SEC's Twitter page, dedicated to officiating, has not posted anything to explain the ruling as of Saturday evening; in fact, the account has been inactive since midday Saturday.
Carlson's third field goal, a 43-yarder, pulled Auburn within 31-30, and then the Tigers took their second lead of the day with their second pick six of the day, as Zakoby McClain caught a deflection off Harris's back and returned it 100 yards for a touchdown, putting War Eagle back in front 37-31.
Nix, a freshman who attended the 2013 game as a fan, passed and ran for a touchdown.
It didn't matter that Alabama had already scored more points on Auburn than any team had all year. We tried to put the defense back in.
Bulovas was 14/18 on field goals for the season entering the game. Harris lead all runners with 94 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries.
