Videos: Auburn Wins ESPY Awards For ‘Best Game’ And ‘Best Play’

Update: Make it two ESPYs for Auburn. As many expected, Chris Davis’ “Kick Six” game winning touchdown in the Iron Bowl won “Best Play.” 

Auburn was nominated twice in the category. Davis’ kick return beat out the deflected Hail Mary that sent Auburn past Georgia two weeks before Auburn’s fateful game with Alabama.

Original: With no major sports tonight, ESPN is holding its annual ESPY awards, and last season’s epic Iron Bowl took home the trophy for best game in all of sports. Auburn, represented by Gus Malzahn, Sammie Coates, Chris Davis, Tre Mason, and Ricardo Louis, accepted the award for the Iron Bowl.

Strangely, no one from Alabama football were present to accept the award. It must be an SEC Media Days conflict.
