The Auburn Tigers were lucky to escape with a win over the Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday in the Deep South's oldest rivalry.

It took a miracle completion on fourth-and-18 with less than a minute to go for the Tigers to pull out the win. Had Georgia's secondarynot tipped the ball, it would have fallen ahead of Auburn receiver Ricardo Louis and the Tigers would have lost the game.

But, that's the way the ball bounces sometimes as Louis was in the right place at the right time to get the ball and score the game-winning touchdown.

The win sets up an iconic Iron Bowl that will determine which team will represent the SEC West in Atlanta against either Missouri or South Carolina.
