Well, the 2013 Iron Bowl certainly lived up to the hype. With a tie game entering the fourth quarter, the momentum was starting to shift towards the Auburn sideline and after pinning Alabama deep in its own territory, the Tigers were in a great position to flip the field. But then AJ McCarron connected with Amari Cooper for a 99-yard touchdown pass to take the lead.
