After a 10-10 tie in regulation, Alabama had possession first in overtime and took a 17-10 lead on a 6-yard touchdown pass from Young to wide receiver Slade Bolden. Auburn answered with a 5-yard touchdown pass from Finley to tight end Landen King, who made a one-handed catch for a 17-17 tie.
Auburn took a 20-17 lead on a 49-yard field goal by Ben Patton. Will Reichard followed with a 37-yard field goal to tie it 20-20.
Alabama (11-1, 7-1 SEC) trailed all game before tying it 10-10 on a 28-yard touchdown pass from Young to wide receiver Ja’Corey Brooks with 24 seconds to play in regulation. Brooks caught the ball just inbounds, but it was reviewed to see if he maintained control of the ball as he fell. The touchdown stood. Will Reichard’s extra point was good. And Auburn (6-6, 3-5 SEC) ran out the clock to bring the game into overtime.

Auburn’s defense stuffed an Alabama fourth-and-one play on the Alabama 46-yard line with two minutes to play in the game and looked in control until Alabama’s final drive.
The Crimson Tide didn’t score its first points until a 30-yard field goal by Reichard with 8:44 to go in the fourth quarter.
After a scoreless opening period, Finley put the Tigers up 7-0 on a 15-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Kobe Hudson with 6:50 to go in the second quarter. That stood as the first half ended. It marked the first time Alabama did not score in the first half of an Iron Bowl since a 9-0 loss in 2000.
