No. 22 Auburn came into its matchup in Death Valley against LSU on Saturday night with a quarterback controversy on its hands. Three-year starter Bo Nix was benched last week in favor of LSU transfer T.J. Finley, who led Auburn to a win against Georgia State. Nix started the game against LSU, but Finley entered the game on the third possession of the game and on the fourth — Nix made college football magic.

Nix led his team on a 10-play, 75-yard drive that ended with one of the most incredible touchdown passes that you’ll ever see. He rolled to his right, eluded pressure, pump-faked a defender, rolled all the way back to the left sideline, found himself in massive trouble and then hit a wide open Tyler Fromm in the end zone for a 24-yard touchdown. 

You can check out the mind-blowing play from Nix below.

Will that Johnny Manziel-like touchdown keep Nix as Auburn’s starter? That’s on first-year coach Bryan Harsin. But there’s no doubt that he sparked Auburn’s offense after getting a series off in favor of Finley.
