Nick Marshall hit C.J. Uzomah for an 11-yard touchdown with 10 seconds left to lift Auburn to a 24-20 victory over Mississippi State on Saturday night, ending the Tigers' 10-game Southeastern Conference losing streak.
Marshall led the Tigers (3-0, 1-0 SEC) down the field with big running and passing plays in easily his best game.
The junior-college transfer completed his first four passes for 39 yards and then ran 11 yards on 3rd-and-10 before lofting the decisive throw to the right corner of the end zone.
The play was reviewed and instant replay officials ruled that the 6-foot-4 tight end was pushed out of bounds, enabling him to come back. Marshall passed for 339 yards and two touchdowns.
Subbing for an injured Tyler Russell for a second straight game, quarterback Dak Prescott ran for 131 yards and two touchdowns and passed for 213 for Mississippi State (1-2, 0-1).
