NEW ORLEANS (WIAT) — The 17th-ranked Auburn Tigers are gearing up for the last game of their season, the Allstate Sugar Bowl against the 7th-ranked Oklahoma Sooners.

After an early injury to starting QB Sean White, the Tigers never regained their footing as Oklahoma had all of the answers for the Auburn offense.

The final score, 35-19, is the result of a touchdown that Auburn HC Gus Malzahn insisted was there for the Tigers as the clock ran down.
