Auburn Tigers-Auburn football

Auburn football is the No. 1 topic in the War Eagle Wakeup every day — but we cover news, notes and analysis from across the Tigers’ sports world. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Auburn football, recruiting, basketball and more.

Relive the moment Ricardo Louis will never (ever) forget

Hey, remember the time that Ricardo Louis saved Auburn’s football season with the most jaw-dropping catch you’ve ever seen?

Yep. He does, too.

Louis talked to SEC Country Auburn podcast host Zac Blackerby this week about the exact moment he went down in football history with his memorable catch against Georgia.

But those two plays, the first of which was the “Prayer,” will be replayed and relived until the end of time.

Check out what Louis had to say about the play that would cement his place in football lore by listening to the SEC Country podcast (now available on iTunes).
