If you didn’t see the play, watch it here. Auburn 34, Alabama 28.

In the other exciting (but not in the same league) game of the weekend, Ohio State almost lost to their rival Michigan in a close game that ended in a failed two-point conversion. The two teams were going head to head all afternoon. With 32 seconds left, Michigan scored a touchdown and instead of going for the point after, they decided to go for two. Michigan’s QB got picked off and the game was over, but you have to respect their courage in wanting to go for the win. Ohio State 43, Michigan 42.

The NFL games were almost afterthoughts in a great weekend of college football. But there were some controversial games.

In the Thursday night matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens, the Steeler’s head coach, Mike Tomlin stepped on the field preventing Jacoby Jones from possibly scoring during a kickoff return. According to Tomlin, “I always watch the returns on the JumboTron. It provides better perspective for me,” Tomlin said. “I lost my placement as he broke free and saw at the last second how close I was to the field of play.” Tomlin and the Steelers could face some serious penalties from the League for this interference. Ravens 22 , Steelers 20.


In the Sunday night game featuring the Washington Redskins and the New York Giants, the officials made a monumental mistake on the Redskins final drive of the game. The Redskins thought they had a first down(and the chains were moved to show a first down) but the officials said it was third down. The problem was that because the chains were moved, the Redskins had no idea they were actually in a third down situation. Redskins ended up losing the game in an unfortunate series of calls based on the wrong information. Giants 24, Redskins 17.
