It was a mixed bag for first-year Auburn head coach Hugh Freeze. The Tigers are bowl-eligible, which is progress, but snatching defeat from the jaws of victory against Alabama will leave a permanent scar. Freeze is known for his offensive brilliance, but the Tigers were not up to par on that side of the line. Freeze did not have a legitimate starting quarterback and must address that issue in the weeks to come. Auburn faces Maryland in the Music City Bowl in Nashville.

Jalen Milroe hit Isaiah Bond for a 31-yard touchdown pass on fourth-and-goal with 32 seconds remaining to give Alabama a win against host Auburn.

Alabama trailed 24-20 in the fourth quarter but got the ball at the Auburn 30-yard line with 4:48 remaining after recovering a muffed punt.

The Crimson Tide converted a fourth-and-1 from the Auburn 10-yard line on a 3-yard run by Roydell Williams, but then, on second down, a snap went past Milroe, who recovered it at the Auburn 26-yard line.

Facing a fourth-and-goal from the Auburn 31 after a penalty, Milroe threw a pass into the back left corner of the end zone to Bond, who snatched it out of the air for an improbable touchdown that turned out to be the winning score.

Milroe completed 16 of 24 passes for 259 yards with two TDs and no interceptions. He also rushed for 107 yards on 18 carries. Payton Thorne threw for 91 yards, a touchdown, and two picks on 5-of-16 passing for the Tigers.

The Auburn Tigers made more news in the offseason than in the 2021 campaign. After a hot start, new head coach Bryan Harsin saw his team fade down the stretch to finish 6-7. Worst of all, clock mismanagement cost War Eagle a win in the Iron Bowl against Alabama. That led to a poor recruiting class, at least by Auburn and SEC standards.

Auburn has long been known for its meddlesome boosters. And in spring 2022, those big money donors had a bellyful of Harsin. While Harsin was out of the country on vacation, the Auburn boosters circulated stories on social media that he was having an affair with a young female staffer. They even circulated pictures of the woman.

Despite a strong and proud football history, the Auburn Tigers have always played in the state's shadow of the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Auburn has two claimed and four unclaimed national championships. The Tigers have won the SEC championship 16 times. They have boasted three Heisman Trophy winners and 31 consensus All-Americans.

Head coaches Ralph Jordan and Pat Dye are Auburn legends. Jordan won a national championship, as did Gene Chizik. Tommy Tuberville and Gus Malzahn are other Auburn coaches that found success on the Plains.

Cam Newton, Pat Sullivan, Bo Jackson, and Terry Beasley are among the legendary Auburn players that have worn the blue and orange.
