Championship Touchdown (McCarron to Cooper)

With just under 3:30 to play in the 4th quarter, the #2 ranked visiting team from Tuscaloosa was trailing the #3 ranked team 28-25 in the conference championship game - a shot at the national championship on the line. The home team stacked its defense at the opponent’s 45-yard line. The call out of the huddle was a play action fake to free-up the freshman phenom wide receiver. It worked. He ran down the left sideline, catching the pass at the 2-yard line for the go-ahead touchdown with 3:15 to play in the game, securing a 32-28 victory (leading to an eventual national championship). Playmaker: Dominic V.
