Verne Lundquist has his latest “Storytime With Uncle Verne” installment, and it’s one of the most memorable games that you possibly have forgotten.
While most of the talk about the 2013 season for Auburn revolves around the Kick-6, two weeks before, a play nearly as improbable gave Auburn an incredible victory.
The “Prayer at Jordan-Hare” – or “Miracle at Jordan-Hare” as Lundquist calls it in the video – is an amazing piece of somewhat forgotten history, and Lundquist details it in the latest video feature surrounding his final season calling SEC football on CBS.
The Tigers trailed 38-37 with 36 seconds to go and Auburn faced a 4th-and-18 from its own 27-yard line. Junior quarterback Nick Marshall threw a pass up for grabs into double coverage.
However, Georgia defensive backs Josh-Harvey Clemons and Tray Matthews both attempted to intercept the ball and missed, and the ball went sailing in the air toward the end zone.
Then, Auburn wide receiver Ricardo Louis came up with the grab and took it into the end zone. Auburn won the game 43-38.
OH MY GOSH!

“To sum up the evening, Gary said, ‘It’s the most amazing finish to a college football game I’ve ever seen, you’ll never see anything like that ever again,'” Lundquist said. “It took us three weeks, and then we had the Kick 6. Auburn against Alabama.”
It was actually two weeks, but it’s your story, Uncle Verne.
The teams play again at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday in Athens on CBS. Uncle Verne will be on the call.
