Blog: Auburn teammate won’t `dog’ Matthews about miracle touchdown quite yet

HOOVER, Ala.–The two plays that crushed the spirit of Georgia and Alabama fans last November are among the final four in voting for ‚ÄúBest Play” in ESPN‚Äôs ESPY Awards.

Auburn tight end C.J. Uzomah would pick the “Kick Six” against the Crimson Tide over the “Prayer in Jordan-Hare,” against Georgia, he said Monday at SEC Media Days.

Not that he won’t remind safety Tray Matthews, in the thick of the backbreaking touchdown pass against the Bulldogs, about the play.

Matthews was dismissed by Georgia and transferred to Auburn.

‚ÄúI kind of want to avoid that so he doesn‚Äôt get too, too mad,‚Äù Uzomah said. ‚ÄúI might talk to him about it later but as of right now I‚Äôm just like, `We‚Äôll let you fit in first and then we can dog you about it later.’‚Äù

Uzomah said the 100-yard return by Chris Davis of a missed field goal on the final play of the game against the Crimson Tide stood out.

“Definitely…Alabama,” he said. “Ricardo (Louis’s) catch meant a lot to me being from Georgia. Winning against them and just being like `Yes, like this is just the best thing ever. Going home (to Suwanee), I’m going to brag about that forever no matter what. To come back off of that and have the most unbelievable game in college football history in my personal opinion and a lot of people’s opinion. I get chills thinking about it right now.”

Georgia and Auburn get together again Nov. 15 in Athens.
