Defeated No. 11 Alabama 28-27
Similar to the week before, Auburn found itself in an early hole, down 24-0 to the Alabama Crimson Tide in the second quarter. Facing Alabama's staunch defense, it seemed that Cam Newton's Heisman hopes and the Tigers' BCS hopes were fading before their eyes. And then Newton led Auburn to its biggest comeback in school history, throwing for 216 yards and three touchdowns and running for one more during a miraculous 28-27 victory.
