Auburn's Field Goal Return Was Even Rarer Than You Think

Saturday's Iron Bowl Gets The Wacko Taiwanese Animation Treatment

The Taiwanese studio Next Media Animation, which will animate pretty much anything nowadays, have offered their calculatingly bizarre take on this weekend's Auburn-Alabama rivalry game.

Auburn Upsets Texas A&M In College Station

Despite what looked like a fairly painful shoulder injury, Johnny Manziel did return to the game and was effective almost immediately. He came back in and lead a 12-play 75 yard scoring drive, capped off by a one-yard rushing touchdown. And then whatever they likely shot him up with started to wear off. » 10/19/13 8:07pm 10/19/13 8:07pm

Johnny Manziel Couldn't Throw After This Hit

Manziel was hit on a tumbling scramble on second-and-goal and immediately grabbed his right shoulder after it was driven into the ground. He got to his feet, tried walking to the bench and crumpled to the ground. » 10/19/13 6:57pm 10/19/13 6:57pm

As subplots go, the Alabama-Texas A&M game had an unexpected one from the end of the first quarter through the tense final minute: an errant extra point.

Auburn Wrests Title Of "Team Everyone Wants To Play" From Arkansas

Arkansas beat Auburn today, which in itself wouldn't be so strange except that as recently as this morning it was reasonable to ask whether Arkansas would ever win another game, ever, ever.
