The "Kick Six", which involved Auburn cornerback Chris Davis running a missed field goal back for a touchdown with no time left to win the Iron Bowl and end Alabama's national title hopes, remains one of the seminal moments of the last decade in college football. On the call in that game for CBS was the immortal Verne Lundquist, who described this game as the greatest finish to a sporting event he has ever personally witnessed.

After video replay gave Alabama one chance to nail a 56-yard field goal for the win, Bama promptly missed, giving Davis a chance to return the kick. Davis found a seam and exploded into the hole, racing the length of the field before ending Alabama's national title hopes.

Lundquist's call was simple and lacking bombast, but his trademark style shone through and perfectly captured the scenes at Jordan-Hare. And yes, Verne was right -- no flags. Exhale.

Not only did one of the great moments in college football history come within the context of one of the sport's most cherished rivalries, but on the call was a man who served as the voice of SEC football for decades. Lundquist's call will live on forever, just like Davis' touchdown will.
