Reaction from Saban, YouTube, Twitter after Auburn’s stunning victory
The play that ended that highlight up there went 109 yards — okay, 100 according to NCAA rules — and it changed this season of college football completely.
Gone is Alabama’s red carpet walk to the BCS title game. Revived are Ohio State’s hopes to get there. And now, out of seemingly nowhere, Auburn is in the mix too, with a date next Saturday in the SEC title game.
The Iron Bowl was epic, and there was no shortage of reaction from around the football-loving world. Here is how the people responded, from Nick Saban to fans to, yes, even Ohio State players.
Check it out.

Losing always feels lousy! Bama gave great effort, but didn't play well enough to win. We must move on. #RollTide

“@knucklechild75: why is that?” The kicking team may not realize the situation and jog toward their own bench.
