Flutie: Auburn's Davis created lifelong memory

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Chris Davis ran into the end zone and etched his name in college football lore.

Doug Flutie welcomes him to the club.

No. 3 Auburn's Davis turned in one of the most memorable plays of Iron Bowl and perhaps college football history with his 109-yard, last-play return of a missed field goal to beat No. 4 Alabama on Saturday.

Flutie says "there's no doubt that he'll always be remembered."

Yes, Flutie was the 1984 Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback for Boston College but his Hail Mary pass to Gerard Phelan to beat Miami is what he's most remembered for by fans.

Davis' return lifted the Tigers over the two-time defending national champion Crimson Tide and into the Southeastern Conference title game. Flutie's advice to Davis is to embrace it.
