No. 16 Auburn upends No. 5 Alabama 48-45 to thwart Tide’s title hopes
AUBURN, Ala. -- Another wild, triumphant Iron Bowl finish turned Auburn’s field into a teeming mass of orange and blue. A missed Alabama field goal again had much to do with it. Shaun Shivers scored on an 11-yard run with 8:08 left to put No. 16 Auburn ahead and another failed kick wiped away the fifth-ranked Crimson Tide’s playoff hopes in a 48-45 victory for the 16th-ranked Tigers on Saturday.
