Do you remember where you were when you saw the end of the 2013 Iron Bowl between Auburn and Alabama? Of course you do. It was one of the most unbelievable plays in the history of college football. Well, the Tigers and the Crimson Tide are back at it again this weekend, with a playoff spot on the line for Alabama. Rivalry games tend to bring out the best of the teams involved, so it would be surprising if one of these weekend’s big matchups—whether Ohio State–Michigan, Florida State–Florida, UCLA–USC, Notre Dame–Stanford, or even Washington State–Washington—didn’t end in some unpredictable fashion. In honor of “Kick Six,” here are some of the least probable finishes in the game’s history.
