Watch: Auburn botches snap late in upset loss to Texas A&M
Texas A&M recovered a botched snap to seal a 41-38 upset over Auburn at Jordan-Hare Stadium on Saturday.
With less than two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, the Tigers began a drive inside Aggies territory. An eight-yard run by receiver Ricardo Louis and a six-yard pass from quarterback Nick Marshall to receiver Sammie Coates brought Auburn to Texas A&M's 28-yard line.
On the next play, Marshall wasn't prepared for the snap after an apparent miscommunication with center Reese Dismukes.The ball rolled free and Texas A&M recovered. The Aggies then kneeled twice to run out the clock.
That was the second fumble involving Marshall in the fourth quarter that was recovered by Texas A&M.
The loss drops Auburn's record to 7-2 (4-2 SEC) and improves Texas A&M's record to 7-3 (3-3 SEC). The Aggies entered Saturday having lost three consecutive conference games, while the Tigers were riding a 14-game home winning streak. Auburn was ranked third in the latest edition of the College Football Playoff rankings.
