Ryan Mallett and Cameron Newton created a championship type feel leading up to the game...
But Tyler Wilson stole the show.
"One of the intangibles of a quarterback that you look for and that is the competitve nature of that guy he's got it," Auburn head coach Gene Chizik says.
Before captaining the first 11 win season in four decades, before the All-SEC accolades and even before the speech heard round the state, Tyler Wilson's breakout moment will always be remebered as the shootout on the plains.
"It was a great opportunity for me there, kinda a great breakout on my behalf, both teams have a lot to prove and I know we're gonna go down there and give it our best," Wilson said.
