After a slow start on Saturday in their game against Ole Miss, the Auburn Tigers fought their way back into the competition only to see the Rebels slip away in the 4th quarter.
The first quarter was dominated by Ole Miss with two touchdowns. The first one was made on the Rebels' first possession. A 9-play drive covered 80 yards to the endzone. Rebel Quarterback Bo Wallace completed three passes and rushed twice during the drive. Wallace even scored the TD when he received a pass from backup QB Randall Mackey for 25 yards..
Ole Miss' second touchdown happened at the 5:39 mark in the first quarter. Auburn's offense was three plays into its possession when a high snap flew over the head of Quarterback Clint Moseley. Ole Miss' C.J. Johnson was able to recover the fumble in the endzone for another touchdown. Bryson Rose's extra point put score at 14-0 above Auburn.
The Tigers did not allow themselves to be defeated in the second half. After their fumble, Auburn came back with a 13 play drive covering 74 yards for the score. A Tre Mason 1-yard rush capped off the score and Cody Parkey kicked his first field goal of the game.
On Auburn's next possession, the Tigers did not delay in getting down the field. A two play drive began with a Clint Moseley pass to Sammie Coates for 42-yards and was capped off with a Tre Mason 6-yard rush for the touchdown. Cody Parkey then tied up the game with his extra point kick.
Since the were nearing halftime, Auburn conspired to regain the ball with an on-side kick. Cody Parkey's kick was recovered by the Tigers at their own 47, giving them a leg up against the Rebels. Ole Miss' defense was able to hold them back and Cody Parkey was forced to kick a 46-yard field goal. This gave Auburn the lead with a minute remaining in the half.
The Rebels did not allow Auburn to take that lead into the locker room, though. A series of Bo Wallace passes, mixed liberally with Ole Miss' timeouts, gave the Rebels a shot at a kick. Bryson Rose was able to make the 28-yard field goal just as time ran out, giving the game a score of 17 all.
Coming back from halftime, Ole Miss was ready to fight. The Rebels only used 4 plays to get 73 yards to the endzone. The big play from the drive was a Bo Wallace pass to Ja-Mes Logan for 40 yards to the Auburn 1 yard line. A Wallace rush later, Ole Miss gained a touchdown. The Bryson Rose kick put the score at 24-17.
Auburn's next score came at the 4:38 mark in the third quarter. A 10-play drive over 51 yards was not quite enough to get to the endzone, but did allow for Cody Parkey to make a 31-yard field goal. Ole Miss' lead was cut down to 4 points at 24-20.
Ole Miss negated Auburn's field goal at the beginning of the 4th quarter when they got a field goal of their own. The 9-play drive covered 58 yards but the Rebels had to kick when faced with 4th and 10 at the Auburn 21. Bryson Rose kicked the 39-yard field goal and brought the score to 27-20.
Ole Miss grabbed a late touchdown in the 4th quarter just when it appeared the Tigers had them stopped. On 3rd and 16, Rebel QB Bo Wallace landed a pass in the arms of Jeff Scott, who appeared to be downed by the Auburn defense, but actually never touched the turf. Scott covered 55 yards to the endzone against the unaware Auburn defense. Scott crossed the goal line with just over five minutes remaining. Bryson Rose's kick was good and brought the score to 34-20.
The Tigers needed to play hard to cover the gap in the score. On the kickoff, C.J. Uzomah made an amazing 38 yard return to the Mississippi 35 yard line. Just as it appeared the Tigers could get back in the game, Rebel Mike Marry intercepted a Clint Moseley and returned it to the Auburn 31. Three plays later, Rebel QB Bo Wallace pushed two yards into the endzone for another touchdown. Bryson Rose added another kick and the score became 41-20 with around 3:26 remaining. This wrapped up the scoring in the game.
Next week, Auburn heads out to play Vanderbilt. Kickoff is at 11:21 a.m.
