This game potentially hampers their national title game asperations, as their are still two teams whom have yet to lose. The Auburn Tigers with their 10-2 record most likely will not get chosen to play for the national title. However, they played spoiler today and will most likely get chosen to play in a higher tier bowl game.
This is the second undefeated team that the Auburn Tigers have defeated on their home football field in the past three weeks. I watched three out of the four quarters of this game. I try to only write recaps of games I actually watch.
I tuned in when the score was 0-0 in the latter parts of the first quarter. Overall, this was a very competitive game. Alabama was guilty with twice as many penalties as Auburn, 8-4.
There were a couple of no calls or suspect referee decisions in this game. However, none in my opinion that caused a different outcome with regards to the final 26-14 score. The Auburn Tigers tried to convert a two point play in the fourth quarter, that failed.
This did NOT come back to haunt them as the Alabama Crimson Tide failed to score in the fourth quarter. The Alabama Crimson Tide football regular season is over with. We shall see what bowl game both teams get invited to.
