Auburn games this season had questionable officiating. Its latest game featured a controversial call as Auburn scored late TD to defeat Ole Miss. It looked like the officials missed a muffed kick return.
Ole Miss had a one-point lead late in the last quarter when a bouncing kickoff appeared to glance off Auburn’s Shaun Shivers. Ole Miss recovered the ball at the end zone, but officials called a touchback instead of a recovery.
The best bookie pay per head was surprised that the officials didn’t review the play. Even in the replay, the ball appeared to touch Shivers, who chased after it. However, he gave up, and that’s why Ole Miss recovered the ball.
Auburn Scored Late TD Against Ole Miss
