NATIONAL TITLE GAME SUMMARY!!! Well they said he couldnt do it... they said with a new team, losses to C. Mich and Co St.. they couldnt do it.. They said the same thing at Purdue a year ago... He Couldnt Do It... Well boys and girls... HE DID IT!!! Auburn snuck into the national title game vs the #1 Wolfpack.. a Wolfpack team that had given T2 his first tastes of glory... 3 seasons ago T2 was the HC of the Wolfpack.. but after leading them to an 11-2 season with wins over Notre Dame and Ohio State he bolted to the Purdue Boilermakers.. After promising the Boiler nation a Crystal ball by the end of the season the stakes were high.... He got it done.. winning 9 games in the 4th qtr by out scoring oppnents 209 - 73.. So after taking an unbeaten record and the national title home... T2 Bolted again this time to sunny Auburn Alabama.. When Auburn walked into the Superdome to take on Nevada you could feel the excitement in the air.. Auburn Fans roared when the Tigers got the coin toss and took the ball... Kodi Burns lead the team onto the field... from the first snap the Tigers looked smooth... gashing the Wolfpack Defense... until Stegall caught the seem pass that saild just out of arms reach of the NV LB... 7-0 Auburn.. Nevada got the ball and began to move.. but on the 3rd play of the series Nevada tried to throw a swing pass out of the backfield, only to be intercepted by the LB Freeman who was going on an contain route... quickly the Tigers took a 14-0 lead.. Nevada continued its struggles throughout the 1st qtr, failing on a 4th down from the AUB43.. The Nevada defense did begin to slow the advancing tiger offense forcing a punt.. but the Tigers drove deep into NV territory.. David Aycock was able to bounce in from 9 yards out.. Nevada was stunned but not out.. Coach T2 who has coached against Jvig twice now.. knew he would just fold up shop and hand over the Crystal ball without a fight.. Nevada managed to get on the board with just under 3mins left in the 1st half.. Auburn had a chance in the closing seconds of the 2nd qtr to put the dagger through the wolfpack.. but failed to convert inside the 10yrd line, and then missed a 30yard fg by 5 yards.... Coach Jvig must have giving his team on hell of a talk at the break.. The wolfpack came out swinging.. and NV got in after a great audible by the QB Lantrip, connecting with S. Anderson from 53yards away.. Kodi Burns tried to get the Tigers to answer but was picked off and set up another 7 points for the Wolfpack to close within 21-17.. Again Burns tired to lead the Tigers down the field but was picked off while trying to thread the needle over the middle.. giving the wolfpack a shot at some more points.. but the Defense stood strong and held NV to only 3pts.. making the score 21-20 with just over 1min left in the 3rd.. before the kick of Coach T2 knew he needed a big play to get the game back under his control.. Adams managed to bring the kickoff back to the NV 40 yard line.. It wouldnt take Aub long to get down the field.. with David Aycock scoring from 1 yard out to extend the lead 28-20.. but the Tigers couldnt breath just yet.. auburn yet again threw another INT.. and NV made them pay when Lantrip connected with Wimberly from 12yards out to pull within 28-26.. NV opted go for the 2pts but NV Star TB Johri Fogerson was halted at the 1.. NV tried to get the onside but set up Auburn with great field position and Kodi Burns made them pay.. leading the team 40yards and getting the game winning score from 15 yards out and only 35 seconds remained.. but the fight wasnt over.. NV made quick work getting down the field in 35 seconds to have Anderson catch his 3rd TD of the game from 15 yards out.. NV went for the 2 and Fogerson barely made it across the line to finish the game 35-34..
