Today’s look back focuses on the 1985 Auburn-Georgia game and the play of All-American Bo Jackson. Like Pat Sullivan 14 years earlier, Jackson used the Dawgs to solidify his hold on the Heisman Trophy.

Jackson wrapped up the award on an 84 yard touchdown run that became one of his most famous while on the Plains. The game marked Jackson’s final victory as a Tiger. Auburn defeated Georgia 24-10 on the way to a Cotton Bowl berth against Texas A&M.
