SEC Rewind – Week 14


Two dramatic victories have Auburn in the SEC Championship Game where it faces Missouri. The winner of that game has a chance to slip into the BCS National Championship Game.

So did anything happen in the SEC this weekend?

If you were driving home from the in-laws’ house this Saturday, you missed a ton.

Auburn stunned Alabama with one of the most dramatic finishes in the history of college football – the “Kick Six.”

Missouri stymied Texas A&M to clinch the SEC East and set up an amazingly improbable SEC Championship Game of Auburn against Missouri in Atlanta next weekend.

Georgia, behind Hutson Mason in his debut start, came back from 20 down to stun rival Georgia Tech and South Carolina again took it to its in-state rival, Clemson.

Let’s take a look at Week 14 in this week’s SEC Rewind:

CB Chris Davis – Auburn

Forget the 10 tackles Davis made Saturday. The only play anyone will remember the senior cornerback making in the 2013 Iron Bowl came in the final second. Davis fielded the missed 57-yard field-goal try 8 yards deep in the end zone and returned it 108 yards for the game-winning, landscape-shifting touchdown to lift No. 4 Auburn past top-ranked Alabama.

RB Tre Mason – Auburn

The workhorse back rushed for 164 yards and a TD against the SEC’s toughest rush defense, putting Auburn in position to have a chance against the No. 1 Crimson Tide. Mason likely wrapped up the SEC rushing crown in the victory as well.

QB James Franklin – Missouri

In his second game back from an injury to his throwing shoulder, Franklin connected on 18 of 28 passes for 233 yards and 2 TDs. He also rushed for 80 yards to help the Tigers knock off Texas A&M and claim a spot in the SEC Championship Game.

QB AJ McCarron – Alabama

McCarron endured a rough start to play a phenomenal game that seemingly gave him a chance to sneak back into the Heisman Trophy discussion – that is until Auburn stole the game away from No. 1 Alabama. The senior quarterback completed 17 of 29 passes for 277 yards and 3 TDs.

RB Henry Josey – Missouri

It took nearly all of regulation for Josey to break a game-changing play, but he finally did to break a tie with Texas A&M with 3:15 remaining in regulation. Josey’s 57-yard touchdown propelled Missouri to a 28-21 win and the SEC East crown.

WR Amari Cooper – Alabama

A season’s worth of frustration came out Saturday evening at Auburn. Cooper caught 6 passes for 178 yards, including a 99-yard TD. He also rushed for what looked like a 29-yard TD before instant replay ruled him out at the 1-yard line.

DT Kelcy Quarles – South Carolina

Under the radar for much of the season, Quarles 6 tackles including 2.5 sacks. His effort helped disrupt the Clemson offense and help the Gamecocks claim their fifth consecutive win over the Tigers.

QB Anthony Jennings – LSU

When QB1 Zach Mettenberger went down with what looked like a devastating knee injury, coach Les Miles turned to Jennings. The freshman orchestrated an all-time drive, taking the ball from his own 1-yard line to the game-winning touchdown. Jennings completed 4 of 7 passes for 76 yards and he ran three times for 26 yards. He also completed the game-winning 49-yard touchdown pass to WR Travin Dural with 1:15 remaining.

RB Todd Gurley – Georgia

Playing without QB Aaron Murray, Georgia needed to rely more on the run. Even trailing rival Georgia Tech by 20 early, the Bulldogs fed Gurley. The decision paid off. Gurley finished with 122 yards and 3 TDs on 20 attempts. He also added 36 receiving yards and another TD.

S Nickoe Whitley – Mississippi State

In addition to 5 tackles and an INT, Whitley turned in the biggest play of the game. State’s safety punched the ball out of the hands of Ole Miss QB Bo Wallace, who seemed destined for the end zone. Instead, the ball bounced into the end zone where CB Jamerson Love recovered to seal the overtime win over the rival Rebels.

RB Jeremy Hill – LSU

When LSU most desperately needed some offense, it turned to Hill. He responded with 145 rushing yards and a TD.

WR Jordan Matthews – Vanderbilt

Just about all season, Vanderbilt’s offense featured one weapon – Matthews. The senior wrapped up his final home game with 11 receptions for 125 yards in helping the Commodores secure their first eight-win regular season since 1927-28.

QB Josh Dobbs – Tennessee

The true freshman capped his initial campaign with a strong outing, completing 14 of 23 passes for 199 yards, 2 TDs and an INT. He also rushed seven times for 52 yards and another TD.
