Interestingly, in the final play of this mega matchup, it was Arnold whose charm worked. As he picked off Auburn QB Payton Thorne and brought the pass into the end zone, in an attempt to walk off a pick-six and end the game with a 33-24 lead for Alabama Crimson Tide.

As Arnold went out of the boundary near the 3-yard line, the touchdown was later called in for review. That’s why his thrilling and crazy game ended, as Alabama brought home the title of 88th Iron Bowl trophy.

As the game ended, and the defensive back returned, there she was, Miss Terry, waiting for him.
