Auburn alumni react to four-overtime loss: “That game was payback for all our luck in 2013”
Auburn and Arkansas combined to score 100 points on Saturday in a thrilling four-overtime game. Unfortunately for Auburn supporters, Arkansas prevailed 54-46.
Auburn alumni, former players and even an Olympic hurdler weighed in on the marathon game via social media.
Here are some of the best tweets:
USA Olympian Lolo Jones, a noted LSU alum, was still impressed with this hurdle by Auburn freshman running back Kerryon Johnson in the second quarter of the game. The fourth-down run went for 19 yards and extended Auburn’s first scoring drive of the day.
Superb! Kerryon Johnson. Prime lead leg. Trail leg snaps down. Would've gave A+ but he didn't run much off hurdle.A- pic.twitter.com/IjpJ18D4jv

Auburn alumnus Kim Hudson, who is married to former Auburn pitcher Tim Hudson, was invested throughout the game. Judging by the emoji in her tweet, she may or may not have covered her eyes during the third overtime.

Former Auburn running back Ben Tate was frustrated with Auburn’s defense, which gave up four touchdowns and two two-point conversions in the overtime periods.

Brandon Cox played quarterback for the Tigers from 2004-2007. He seems to think that Auburn’s loss was partially due to karma.
Whether you believe in karma or not, Auburn has lost six of its last seven SEC games going back to last season.

Former Auburn linebacker Will Herring knows how it feels to be involved in close losses, but he remains optimistic about the Tigers going forward.
It hurts the most when u come up just short, but I was proud of the way we played through adversity! Saw a much better team today! #AUFamily
