(4 Overtimes) First ever Overtime in Iron Bowl History
Alabama needed a Heisman-esque touchdown drive from its California quarterback in the final minutes of regulation just to send the game into overtime. With Young behind center, and given yet again another chance after so many inexplicable errors, the Crimson Tide went 97 yards to save its season.
The catch by Alabama freshman receiver Ja’Corey Brooks with 24 seconds left in the fourth quarter was an all-time Iron Bowl moment.
Alabama and Auburn traded touchdowns in the first overtime and field goals in the second overtime to send the game to a third overtime, decided by two-point conversions. Both teams converted, leading to a fourth overtime in which Alabama freshman cornerback Kool-Aid McKinstry broke up T.J. Finley’s pass in the end zone. Bryce Young then knelt in the endzone and preceded in the feat that changed the outcome as he completed the game-winning pass to John Metchie.
Alabama escaped from Jordan-Hare Stadium with one of its most dramatic wins, 24-22, of the Nick Saban era.
