He watched Bryce Young ripped the hearts of Auburn fans in the 2021 Iron Bowl and Tua Tagovailoa create “2nd and 26” with DeVonta Smith, but the sophomore quarterback added to Crimson Tide folklore. He quieted everything at Jordan-Hare Stadium with a game-winning touchdown pass to Isaiah Bond that will be forever remembered as “4th and 31.” The play heard around the world delivered the Tide to a 27-24 victory, keeping Alabama’s CFP hopes alive. Milroe became emotional in talking about wanting the Heisman Trophy, but he shoot his best shot for it?

He accounted for 259 passing yards, 107 rushing yards, two touchdowns, and no turnovers in a marquee rivalry game. Alabama’s defense struggled with Auburn’s rushing attack, but Milroe carried the team to victory. He put the team on his back with the “LANK” mentality and got Alabama out of Pat Dye Field with a win. A Heisman moment is when a player shows he’s the most important one on the field, and Milroe displayed it several times in the Iron Bowl. He may not win the award, but a trip to New York City is warranted for him.

Hw continues to shock doubters, play with confidence, and brought tears to Auburn fans.

Milroe now turns his attention to Georgia and the SEC Championship Game.
