Auburn had a tough week one against Clemson. The Tigers got their revenge Saturday, as they took on Arkansas State.

Auburn rolled the Red Wolves 51-14 on Saturday. But Auburn’s most exciting play came on a simple toss out to the half back. And it might end up being a contender for best play of the season.

A play which seem destined for a loss of yards turned into a touchdown thanks to a running back who was determined to make it to the end zone. And it was made possible by an offensive line that held its blocking, not satisfied with a short gain.

Auburn begins SEC  play next week against Texas A&M. The Tigers will need more plays like that one if they want to snap out of their recent conference slump, as they haven’t finished with a winning record in the SEC since 2013, when they lost to Florida State in the BCS Championship game.
