Auburn marched into Kyle Field as underdogs Saturday, and the Tigers marched out with a 45-41 win over the No. 7 Texas A&M Aggies. It was easily the biggest victory of the young Gus Malzahn era, and it proved that Malzahn's team is not rebuilding, but is in fact already back to being an SEC contender.
Auburn Athletics provides the video, which features a number of the offensive and defensive highlights. Tre Mason's and Nick Marshall's efforts on the ground were impressive, and the tunnel screen to Sammie Coates was a thing of beauty. But for fans of old-school, defensive Auburn football, the final stand against Johnny Manziel was as good as it gets. With so many options from a back-and-forth game, it's tough to pick a favorite moment.
In addition to the highlight reel, Auburn Athletics has a couple of other videos from the surrounding festivities. First check out fans on the Plains rolling Toomer's Corner after the win:
And then, watch as the team returns to Auburn and is greeted by numerous supporters:
Auburn is back to playing and winning games of importance. This is fun.
