AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Twice a round didn’t rebound Auburn’s approach like it has so often.

In a 41-38 dissapoint on Saturday, Texas AM pulled off some of a late-game sorcery that a third-ranked Tigers have finished their trademark.

Freshman Kyle Allen threw 4 touchdown passes in a initial half and a Aggies recovered dual late fumbles in a diversion that expected finished a Tigers’ playoff hopes.

“It hurts. It hurts a team,” Auburn manager Gus Malzahn said. “We had goals and dreams and we didn’t get it done.”

The Aggies (7-3, 3-3 Southeastern Conference), who came in as 23-point underdogs, wound adult dancing on a sideline — and on Auburn’s postseason hopes.

“These past dual weeks, no one unequivocally believed in us, though we feel like we always do a best when no one believes in us,” Texas AM descent lineman Mike Matthews said.

The Tigers (7-2, 4-2, No. 3 CFP) twice seemed to be pushing toward a go-ahead touchdown before coughing it adult on plays that never unequivocally got going. First, Julien Obioha won a hasten for a round during a 2 after Nick Marshall and Cameron Artis-Payne got tangled adult in a backfield.

“It was a bad exchange, it’s something that never unequivocally happens,” pronounced Artis-Payne, who rushed for 221 yards and dual touchdowns.

Marshall pronounced Artis-Payne had come adult with a round first. Obioha was some-more endangered with who had it last.

“A lot of things happens during a bottom of a pile. I’m not going to contend accurately who had possession of it,” he said. “But when it is all pronounced and finished we finished adult with a round and we had possession, so approbation we did get a fumble.”

The Aggies couldn’t get divided from their idea line before punting, and Trey Williams usually managed to pull a round out of a finish section to equivocate a reserve on third down.

Then, a Tigers gathering inside a 30 for one some-more shot. Marshall seemed to be still checking to a opposite play when core Reese Dismukes snapped it on initial down from a 28.

“It was usually a miscommunication,” Dismukes said.

Alonzo Williams recovered with 54 seconds left, environment off a celebratory dance for players on a Aggies’ sideline and withdrawal many of a Jordan-Hare Stadium throng in dumbfounded silence.

Texas AM manager Kevin Sumlin pronounced stoppages to examination several pivotal plays late — all inspected by replay officials — were nerve-racking.

“That’s going to occur in large games and tighten games,” Sumlin said. “The round bounced a way.”

It tied a many points Auburn had scored in a law loss, that also happened opposite Florida in 1995 and Wake Forest in 1979.

Texas AM had forsaken 3 true SEC games before toppling a contender.

The fortifying SEC champion and inhabitant runner-up Tigers also had a nation’s longest home winning strain (14 games) end. They’d won dual true on games that went down to a final play, and coincidentally a biggest play opposite No. 12 Mississippi was a goal-line fumble.

Allen was staid and solid in his second career start and initial on a road. He finished 19 of 29 passes for 277 yards with an interception, mostly avoiding miscues opposite a beleaguered Auburn defense.

“He really had a small strut to him,” Matthews said. “He came in this diversion and he didn’t seem like a beginner during all, he seemed like he has started 4 years during this university.”

Allen capped Texas AM’s initial dual drives with prolonged touchdown passes, 60 yards to Malcome Kennedy and 36 to Josh Reynolds for a 14-0 lead. Kennedy had 118 yards receiving and Reynolds also held a 7-yard TD pass in a second quarter.

It was a turnaround from a rarely touted beginner quarterback’s initial start, a unsure 21-16 win over Louisiana-Monroe. But Allen’s play stepped adult along with a foe and he outdueled Marshall.

“He was a lot some-more loose tonight than a week ago, trust it or not,” Sumlin said. “I consider that showed.”

It competence not have come down to a wire, though Myles Garrett blocked a margin idea and Deshazor Everett returned it 65 yards down a Auburn sideline for a touchdown on a final play of a initial half, a rapid-fire 10-point turnaround. Auburn spent a rest of a diversion perplexing to pat divided during that 35-17 deficit. Josh Lambo kicked margin goals of 22 and 27 yards in a second half.

Marshall finished 15 of 21 passes for 219 yards and a touchdown while using 18 times for 67 yards. He had usually 80 flitting yards going into a fourth entertain before finally heating up, with heading receiver D’haquille Williams sidelined for many of a diversion with a right knee injury.

“We’re going to get everyone’s best shot,” Tigers defensive tackle Angelo Blackson said. “No one’s usually going to hurl over and take a boundary whipping.”
