Video: A.J. McCarron Throws 99-Yard Touchdown Pass To Amari Cooper, Tide Takes 28-21 Lead

Huge.

There was a ton of hype heading in to the Iron Bowl, and so far, I think it's safe to say that the game has lived up to it. Several minutes into the fourth quarter, Alabama and Auburn were tied 21-21, but A.J. McCarron decided that he'd had enough. Alabama was backed up on its own 1-yard line, but McCarron found Amari Cooper streaking down the sideline, and the pair connected for a huge, momentum-swinging 99-yard touchdown.

Jonathon Mincy was beat in coverage, and Jermaine Whitehead couldn't make the tackle:

Heisman moment, anyone?
