GAME RECAP: #15 Auburn 48, #5 Alabama 45

I don’t really know how to describe what happened at Jordan-Hare Stadium today, but all in all it ended up with a 48-45 win for Auburn in the 2019 Iron Bowl, defeating rival Alabama in the wildest game in series history to finish the year at 9-3. Alabama finishes the regular season at 10-2 and can enjoy a regular old bowl game like the rest of us.

In the closing seconds, Gus Malzahn outcoached Nick Saban by using a trick substitution on a 4th and 4 situation, goading Alabama into a penalty for 12 men on the field.
