Auburn’s game-changing performance: best of the year!

January 8th, 2007
 

2005.09.01-19.26.59/au-logo.jpgOctober 14 at Jordan-Hare Stadium: Auburn was trailing Number 2 Florida, but late in the third quarter, the Tigers had stopped the Gators and forced them into a punting situation deep in their own territory. Then lightning struck: Florida punter Eric Wilbur mishandled the snap from center. Auburn’s Jerraud Powers blocked the punt, and Tre Smith picked up the ball and led a host of Tigers into the Florida end zone. The touchdown not only put the Tigers on top, it also sent the crowd into a frenzy and turned the game around. Auburn went on to win a 27-17 upset, the Tigers’ biggest win of the year, and Florida’s only loss.

The game was selected as one of ESPN/Pontiac’s “game changing performance” candidates for the week, and won the weekly vote. Now after another round of voting, that blocked punt and resulting touchdown has been voted the ESPN/Pontiac game-changing performance of the year.

Congratulations Tigers!
