Auburn kicks past Florida… twice

Wes Byrum beats Florida with a last-second kick-- TWICE!

18 year-old Wes Byrum kicks Auburn to a 20-17 victory.

AUBURN 20
FLORIDA 17

On a day that saw several ranked college teams fall, including four in the top 10, the Auburn Tigers came up BIG on the road– again.

Wes Byrum beats Florida with a last-second kick-- TWICE!

Tebow who? The hero of the night was Wes Byrum.

Wes Byrum is 18 years old, yet he already has his permanent place in Auburn history. Using a rather shady rule allowing coaches to call time out from the sideline, Florida coach Urban Meyer called a timeout just before the ball was snapped. Byrum hit his 43-yard field goal, but to no avail. It didn’t count. It didn’t matter. After the time out, Byrum nailed his field goal again. This time, it sent the #4 and previously unranked Florida Gators– the defending National Champions– to their first loss of the season.

At the end of the night, three facts remain.
1. Alabama lost. Again.
2. Florida is no longer undefeated.
3. An 18 year old beat Florida. Twice.

What else can be said? I can think of one thing. WAR EAGLE!!
