Few Southern football rivalries are as unpredictable as the oldest one, and Auburn's miracle game-winning 73-yard touchdown pass to win Saturday was simply the latest amazing ending.

But that wasn't even the only thrilling game-changing fourth-down play in the series.

In 2005, Auburn beat Georgia 31-30 with a field goal in the final seconds, set up by a 63-yard pass from Brandon Cox to Devin Aromashodu on fourth-and-10.

In 2002, there was David Green's late touchdown pass to Michael Johnson on fourth-and-15 to beat the Bulldogs.

In 1996, Georgia beat Auburn 56-49 in four overtimes. The Bulldogs put it in overtime with a 30-yard touchdown pass on the final play of regulation. Auburn had a chance to tie in the fourth overtime, but on a fourth-and-three play at the Georgia 18, Dameyune Craig was stopped after gaining only 2 yards.

In 1994, Auburn entered with a 20-game win streak. Georgia tied the Tigers 23-23, bringing the streak to a halt.
