Video: Did Auburn linebacker Anthony Swain fake an injury against Arkansas?

(Video via Guyism)

In the waning seconds of the third quarter during Auburn's 35-17 win over Arkansas on Saturday, the Razorbacks had the ball on the Tigers' two-yard line. That's when Auburn linebacker Anthony Swain hit the turf with an apparent leg injury.

Video replays, however, show Swain dropping to the ground without any contact whatsoever. Were the Tigers simply trying to slow the Hogs' momentum with a fake injury? (Arkansas fullback Kiero Small scored on a two-yard run on the first play of the fourth quarter, cutting Auburn's lead to 28-17.) As ESPN's Matt Millen said on the broadcast, "Guilty as charged, my friend."

Tigers coach Gus Malzahn addressed the incident after the game:
