AUBURN, Ala. http://www.therangersfanshop.com/Customized/ . -- Aaron Murray and the Georgia Bulldogs could only watch as their fabulous comeback fell apart with one painfully unpredictable play. Ricardo Louis scored on a deflected 73-yard pass from Nick Marshall on fourth and 18 with 25 seconds left to give No. 7 Auburn a 43-38 victory over the 25th-ranked Bulldogs on Saturday night. "Thats a freak play," Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray said. "Its like a nightmare. You try to wake up, and we are celebrating victory. Its tough. This is going to be a tough one to get over." The Tigers (10-1, 6-1 Southeastern Conference) had blown a 27-7 lead but pulled out one more huge play to continue the biggest turnaround in major college football. From 3-9 last year, they can win the SEC West with a victory in two weeks against No. 1 Alabama. Marshall heaved the ball downfield with two defenders around Louis. It bounced off safety Josh Harvey-Clemons hand and Louis reached out his left hand to corral it. Marshall said he stiff armed a defender before letting the ball fly. "I couldnt believe it," Louis said. "It just landed right into my hands. I saw it once it got over my shoulder. It got tipped, I lost track of it ... but when I looked over my shoulders, it was right there." Murray, who had engineered the comeback with three fourth-quarter touchdowns, could only stare helplessly from the bench. A win could have kept the Bulldogs alive in the SEC East. "We played a great team playing great in their house," Georgia coach Mark Richt said. "It looked kind of bleak there for a minute and the boys just started fighting. We got ourselves in position to take the lead, obviously late in the game. We gave them a fourth and 18 and thats almost as good as it gets." Murray led Georgia (6-4, 4-3) all the way to Auburns 20 but his final two passes fell incomplete as time ran out. Dee Ford hit him on the last pass as Murray ran toward the line before trying to throw. Richt said he couldnt remember being on the sidelines for a similar loss since his Florida State days. "When you lose, you tend to think about the things you should have done," he said. "When you win, you just think about how great it is. "Lets face it, as good as Auburn is and has been playing, theyve got all the momentum going." Some Auburn players climbed into the stands to celebrate with students, and most fans stayed put to celebrate the victory. It only came after Murray gave the Tigers a big scare. He had plowed into Ryan Smith at the goal line for a 5-yard touchdown with 1:49 left. Auburn challenged the final TD, but replay officials upheld the call on the field. That left the Tigers starting at their own 22 with 1:45 left. They managed one first down but Jordan Jenkins sacked Marshall to set up fourth and 18. Marshall then produced the biggest play of his career against the Bulldogs, where he played as a freshman defensive back. He was dismissed from the team in February 2012 for violating team rules and returned to the SEC after a season in junior college. He finished 15-of-26 passing for 229 yards after attempting only 15 passes combined in the past two games thanks to a steamrolling running game. Marshall also ran 19 times for 89 yards. He also threw a game-winning TD pass with 10 seconds left against Mississippi State, but there was much more on the line this time. The 2010 national champions are potential contenders again. "They find a way to win," said Gus Malzahn, Auburns first-year coach. "This team has the it factor. Thats just the bottom line." He had simple plans for celebration. "This is definitely a Waffle House night," Malzahn said. The Tigers deserve something for pulling this one out against Murray. The prolific Georgia passer completed 33 of 49 passes for 415 yards and two touchdowns in the final 9:35, with an earlier interception. Murray also ran for two scores and had 160 yards passing in the fourth quarter. Todd Gurley ran 15 times for 79 yards and a touchdown and caught 10 passes for 77 yards. Auburn gained 566 yards, Georgia 532. The Tigers ran for 323 yards against a defence that came in giving up 126 yards a game on the ground, 20th nationally. They had lost the last two meetings in the Deep Souths oldest rivalry by 38 points apiece. Now, the Tigers hold a razor-thin 55-54-8 edge. Auburn rode that punishing running game and Georgia mistakes to a 27-10 halftime lead, at one point outgaining the Bulldogs 170-4 before the comeback began. "It was just a whale of a game, I guess," Richt said. http://www.therangersfanshop.com/Mike-Gartner-Jersey/ . Its the fourth meeting of the season between these teams with each game being decided by a single goal.http://www.therangersfanshop.com/Mark-Messier-Jersey/ . Most important, perhaps, it went off without a hitch. Organizers poked a little fun at the now-infamous opening ceremony gaffe that saw only four out of five snowflakes open up into rings, leaving the Olympics logo one ring short.NEW YORK -- Before Phil Jackson can begin reshaping their future, the New York Knicks are trying to make something of this season. Carmelo Anthony scored 23 points, Tim Hardaway Jr. had 20, and the Knicks beat the Milwaukee Bucks 115-94 on Saturday, giving them a season-high six straight victories as they prepare to welcome Jackson back to the franchise. "Weve got to really focus in on whats the task at hand, and thats still trying to make this push and not even looking forward to next season at this point," Anthony said. Amare Stoudemire and J.R. Smith each scored 15 for the Knicks, who easily ended their daytime woes by pounding the team with the NBAs worst record. New York began the day 3 1/2 games behind Atlanta for the final post-season spot in the Eastern Conference. But the playoff push has taken a backseat to the news that Jackson was coming in to run the Knicks front office -- except in the locker room. "I think our focus is solely on what we have to accomplish to make the playoffs, to be honest," centre Tyson Chandler said. "I know its a lot going on, but as an athlete, you dont pay too much attention to it, because its out of your control, anyway." The Knicks will introduce the 11-time champion as a coach at a press conference Tuesday morning. Jackson will find a team playing its best basketball of a disappointing season. "Better late than never," Stoudemire said. The Knicks shot 55 per cent, led by as much as 25 points and have won six in a row by double digits for the first time since November 1969, according to information provided to the Knicks by Elias. "The easiest thing to do is to start talking about next year at this point in time right now, but the guys on the team seem pretty confident about just staying focused right now, winning basketball games and try to make this push for the playoffs," Anthony said. Nate Wolters scored 15 for the Bucks, who lost their third straight. Brandon Knight and Ramon Sessions each added 14. The Knicks had lost all seven games that began before 3:30 p.m., six by double digits. Things were so bad earlier this season that coach Mike Woodson even had the players stay overnight in a hotel the night before a home game. http://www.therangersfanshop.com/Oscar-Lindberg-Jersey/. But with unusually high energy in the arena for a noon tip, whether because of the winning streak or the Jackson news, the Knicks were sharp from the start. New York made 55 per cent of its shots in a 30-point first quarter, then scored 30 more in the second. The Knicks even got a banked-in 3-pointer from the corner by Iman Shumpert, shortly after Milwaukees Ersan Ilyasova missed a wide-open layup. "I thought we had no real defensive presence," Bucks coach Larry Drew said. The Knicks led 88-66 after three. They have feasted on a weak portion of their schedule to hang around in the playoff race, though things turn tougher with a visit from Indiana on Wednesday. Woodson continues to stress that the Knicks can still make something of this season, though the focus on Jackson has turned much of the attention to the teams future. "Its basketball. Teams, they try to reshape, they go through changes and this is no different," Woodson said before the game. "Youre bringing a great basketball mind into your organization and eventually itll be reshaped. So how and who and when, only time will tell." Jackson played for a pair of title-winning teams in New York, including the 1973 squad whose 40th anniversary the Knicks celebrated last season. The drought seems certain to extend at least another year, even if the Knicks can win enough to get into the post-season. They were helped Saturday with the return of starters Chandler, who missed two games for family reasons, and Stoudemire, who sat out the last one to rest. Shumpert finished with 14 points. "We really feel like were going to get that spot," Chandler said. "If we take care of our business, we do what were supposed to do, we feel like weve got a great shot." Notes: The Knicks have won the last five meetings at Madison Square Garden and took a 98-97 overall lead in the all-time series. ... Knight had scored 20 or more in the previous four games. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
