TUSCALOOSA, Ala. Ben Braden Jersey . -- Amari Cooper tied his own school record with 224 yards receiving and caught three touchdown passes in No. 2 Alabamas 55-44 comeback victory over No. 15 Auburn on Saturday night in the highest-scoring Iron Bowl. Quarterback Blake Sims and the Crimson Tide (11-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference) turned to the Heisman Trophy contender for touchdown strikes of 39 and 75 yards in the third quarter. Alabama had already clinched a spot in the SEC championship game against No. 17 Missouri, and the top team in the College Football Playoff rankings scored 28 consecutive points heading into the final seconds. Auburn (8-4, 4-4) surged ahead 36-27 before losing its third straight SEC game in a season that once also carried playoff hopes. Sims passed for 312 yards and four touchdowns, but threw three interceptions. Auburns Nick Marshall had 456 yards passing, 206 to Sammie Coates. Alabamas trip to Atlanta was sealed about 30 minutes before kickoff when Mississippi knocked off No. 4 Mississippi State, 31-17. The playoff positioning came into question after a slow start, but the Tide offence succeeded where the defence failed. The rivalry that produced last seasons most memorable play -- Auburns 109-yard return of a missed field goal on the final play -- this time turned into a shootout. It showcased Sims-to-Cooper and Marshall-to-Coates with plenty of runs as well. Auburn gained 630 yards against the SECs top defence. Lane Kiffins Alabama offence racked up 539 yards. The previous high score in the Iron Bowl came in 1969, a 49-26 Auburn victory. This one trounced that total. Cooper, who had 13 catches, gained 141 yards in the third quarter alone. Coates scored on touchdowns of 34 and 68 yards on five catches for Auburn. Teammate Dhaquille Williams, who had missed the past two games with a knee injury, gained 121 yards on seven catches. Alabamas T.J. Yeldon ran for 127 yards and a pair of scores. The SECs top rushing defence made it hard going for the No. 1 rusher, holding Auburns Cameron Artis-Payne to 77 yards on 25 runs. Sims overcame his uncharacteristic mistakes to start the comeback with thes 75-yarder to a streaking Cooper when Auburn pushed its lead to nine. The Tide quarterback then pulled a Marshall-like play, scampering for an 11-yard touchdown run and converting the 2-point play to take the lead for good. Sims took Alabama right back downfield after a defensive stop. He hit DeAndrew White for a 6-yard score, but was stopped short on the 2-point try. Marshall and Coates answered with a 53-yard connection to put Auburn in position to score again. Nick Perry brought Marcus Davis down a yard shy on fourth-and-8 deep in Tide territory to effectively end the threat. Daniel Carlson kicked five field goals for Auburn while the Tigers scored 10 points in the final 54 seconds of the first half for a 26-21 lead. It prompted Tide coach Nick Saban to proclaim: Thats about as bad a half of football as weve played all year.

A day after FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke said three stadiums would not be ready in time for the Dec. 31 deadline, Brazilian officials said they actually plan to deliver all six remaining venues after that date. They claim only three are delayed, with the other three being handed over after the expected date only because of problems accommodating the schedule of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, who wants to be present for the ceremonies.HAMBURG, N.Y. - Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus will still try to resolve charges stemming from an alleged street-racing accident after failing to accept a plea deal on Tuesday. Dareus lawyer Michael Caffery turned down the prosecutions offer to plead guilty to reckless driving during a brief appearance in Hamburg Town court. Caffery instead said he intends to obtain more details on the prosecutions evidence in a bid to reach a resolution before a potential trial. Upon listening to the two sides, Judge Gerald Gorman put the case off until Sept. 9, when Dareus is next scheduled to appear in court. The Bills open the season two days earlier in Chicago. Erie County District Attorney Frank Sedita told The Associated Press that the plea deal remains on the table. Dareus was charged with misdemeanour reckless endangerment after crashing his 2012 Jaguar into a tree on May 30. The accident occurred near a busy suburban Buffalo intersection and after Dareus was alleged to be racing Bills linebacker Jerryy Hughes. Parry Nickerson Jersey. The 24-year-old Dareus also was ticketed for numerous traffic violations, including leaving the scene of an accident, reckless driving and taking part in an illegal race. Sedita said he doesnt expect to file criminal charges against Hughes, who has already met with police and prosecutors. Dareus was dressed in a grey suit after he travelled from Alabama to be in court on Tuesday. The Bills 2011 first-round draft pick arrived and left the courthouse without commenting. The accident happened about a month after Dareus was arrested in Alabama and charged with possession of synthetic marijuana and drug paraphernalia. His lawyer has said there are plea discussions in that case. The off-field troubles could lead to the NFL taking disciplinary action against Dareus, including a suspension. The Bills are off until July 18, when players are scheduled to report for the start of training camp in suburban Rochester. ___ AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFLJerseys NFL ChinaCheap Adidas NHL JerseysWholesale Jerseys From ChinaCheap MLB Jerseys WholesaleChina JerseysNFL Jerseys ChinaDiscount Soccer JerseysWholesale Jerseys ChinaChina NCAA Jerseys CheapCheap Nike Dolphins JerseysCheap Nike Patriots JerseysCheap Nike Jets JerseysCheap Nike Bengals JerseysCheap Nike Browns JerseysCheap Nike Steelers JerseysCheap Nike Texans JerseysCheap Nike Colts JerseysCheap Nike Jaguars JerseysCheap Nike Titans JerseysCheap Nike Broncos Jerseys ' ' '
