Auburn Wins Chick-fil-A

By  | 

Freshman quarterback Kodi Burns threw for a
touchdown and scored on a 7-yard run in overtime to lead Auburn a
23-to-20 Chick-fil-A Bowl victory over Clemson.
Burns scored on a spinning run on a third-and-3 play to trigger
an end-zone celebration by Auburn.
Mark Buchholz kicked a 25-yard field goal on Clemson's opening
possession of overtime in last night's game at the Georgia Dome.
Auburn's starting quarterback -- Brandon Cox -- ran for a first
down on a fourth-and-1 play from the 16 to keep Auburn's overtime
possession alive.
Cullen Harper was only 12-for-29 passing for 91 yards as Clemson
was held to 11 first downs and 276 yards in regulation.
Burns played behind Cox as Auburn played its first game in the
spread offense installed by new offensive coordinator Tony
Franklin, who was hired after the regular season.
Burns completed a 22-yard touchdown pass to Mario Fannin for his
only completion of the game and had 13 carries for 69 yards,
including the game-winning run.
Number 22 Auburn (9-4) denied Number 15 Clemson (9-4) its first
10-win season since 1990.
