Auburn will have to beat itself for an ESPY award this year.
The Tigers are nominated for three total ESPYs, including two from the Iron Bowl. Auburn’s Iron Bowl win is nominated for Best Game, while Chris Davis’ 109-yard ‘Kick Six’ return and Ricardo Louis’ deflected 73-yard miracle against Georgia are both nominated for Best Play. Louis’ game winning touchdown wasn’t even the best play for Auburn in the month of November. Think about that.
The Tigers added an SEC Championship to the trophy case, and they can add more with two ESPYs.
“Auburn’s gonna win the football game.” I can still hear Rod Bramblett’s historic call.
