Videos by OutKick

College football starts in 14 days, and remembering the Kick Six is the perfect way to prepare.

During the 2013 Iron Bowl between Alabama and Auburn, the Crimson Tide lined up to attempt what they thought could possibly be a game-winning field goal to avoid overtime.

Instead, the 57-yard attempt fell extremely short, Auburn player Chris Davis caught it and took it to the house to secure a 34-28 win for the Tigers.

Fire it up below, and relive one of the greatest moments in college football history.

Unless you’re an Alabama fan, it’s impossible to not get fired up for the Kick Six. In the past decade of college football action, it might be the most epic moment, and that’s saying a lot.

I was watching it on live TV, and couldn’t believe what my eyes were seeing. Nick Saban literally argued for a second to be added to the clock so his squad could attempt the field goal.

Has there ever been a coach getting his way ultimately going worse than that? Saban got his second, Alabama tried to win the game with an incredibly long field goal and Chris Davis cemented himself as an Auburn legend when he took the ball all the way to the house.

Remember, Alabama was undefeated going into the 2013 Iron Bowl and missed the national title game because of the Kick Six.

Meanwhile, Auburn ended up losing in the title game to Florida State. So, the Tigers derailed Alabama’s season and were national title runner-ups.

Not a bad situation to be in for fans of the Tigers!

I hope this moment amped everyone up for the start of the season. Only 14 more days, folks! Only 14 more days!
