It doesn't get more dramatic than making the game winning play with the absolute last chance you've got

It's the scenario that every kid dreams of being in when they're a kid, but it so rarely comes to pass that it's not often seen, but this example from the game between Auburn and Georgia is pretty fantastic.

With just 36 seconds on the clock, going for it on fourth down when they were at 4 and 18, Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall pumps a long Hail Mary down the field hoping for a miracle.

He gets it. Although it looks like a guaranteed interception, the two Georgia DBs collide, and the ball fortuitously comes to wide receiver Ricardo Louis, who reaches out to grab the ball despite it being behind him. The touchdown gives them the win, the crowd goes wild, and their BCS title hopes are still alive. Talk about a dream finish, eh?
