The Auburn Tigers trailed the Utah State Aggies by 10 points with just a few minutes left in the fourth quarter. Some of their fans left, but the Tigers told the world it wasn't over quite yet as Barrett Trotter led a six-play drive that ended with a 15-yard touchdown pass to pull Auburn within three points with the score board reading 38-35 in favor of the Aggies.
Trotter completed three of his four passes on the drive that lasted less than two minutes, moving the ball 62 yards through the air as he eventually found wide receiver Philip Lutzenkirchen in the end zone for his third touchdown pass of the day. Considering Trotter, a junior, had attempted just nine passes prior to Saturday's game, he showed quite a bit of moxie to be able to lead the Tigers back into contention.
The Tigers recovered the onside kick on the ensuing possession, giving them defending national champs the opportunity to either tie or win the game depending on what happens on the final possession.
