The 9th ranked Hokies botched two golden chances against number 3 Auburn. Fullback Jessee Allen bobbled an easy touchdown pass on a fourth down in the first quarter. Near the end, Bryan Randall threw an 80 yard scoring pass with only two minutes left. But the Tigers recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock, completing their season at 13-and-oh.
