Auburn Vs. Alabama Score: Flea Flicker Puts Tide On Top

Alabama Crimson Tide running back Trent Richardson helped with a 41-yard touchdown pass, and is thus the surefire Heisman Trophy pick. Wait, all he did was flip the ball back to A.J. McCarron. Well, the threat of Richardson terrified the entire Auburn Tigers defense into letting Kenny Bell saunter into the end zone without diversion.

Either way, it's now 7-0, Bama, after some offensive sputters. A nine-play, 81-yard scoring drive will do the trick.

McCarron is already six-of-seven for 81 yards, a surprising stat for many who haven't watched just how much time Alabama's spent passing this year. Richardson has 13 yards rushing on four carries, but he does get credit for a portion of that flea flicker touchdown bomb.

Auburn's offense has yet to participate in an impactful way.
