AUBURN, Ala. (AP) -- Don't call the Auburn Tigers lucky.
The third-ranked Tigers have navigated a season of close calls and amazing finishes finishes to make it into Saturday's Southeastern Conference championship game against No. 5 Missouri.
Auburn players dispute any notion that it's about luck. Fullback Jay Prosch doesn't think Auburn is lucky, but says "there are some crazy things that happened."
Such as a deflected Hail Mary to beat Georgia and Chris Davis's 109-yard return of a missed field goal on the final play to upend No. 1 Alabama.
It makes that touchdown with 10 seconds left to beat Mississippi State and the game-winner with 1:19 remaining against No. 22 Texas A&M seem mundane.
Auburn tailback Corey Grant says the Georgia touchdown was "a miracle" and the one against Alabama good coaching.
