Auburn beat Georgia over the weekend in one of the most improbable finishes in sports this season. Trailing 38-37 with half a minute left and facing a 4th & 18, Auburn QB Nick Marshall flinged the ball downfield where it was tipped by the Georgia defense into the waiting arms of Ricardo Louis.
When you're the home broadcast team and you see a miraculous finish unfold...

Auburn's SEC Championship chances were all but over.
