Auburn's Iron Bowl victory resonates across nation

By Charles Goldberg & Jason Matheson
AUBURN, Ala. -- It was the greatest ending in the history of sports.
"There. I said it," wrote Mike Vaccaro of the New York Post.
Chris Davis' stunning 100-yard return of a missed field goal on the last play of the game to lead Auburn past Alabama 34-28 last Saturday is still the talk of the sports world. And the non-sports world. It has run virtually non-stop on ESPN, is the cover story on this week's Sports Illustrated, has shown up on the regular newscasts of CBS, ABC and NBC, and has been written about in Great Britain and probably Timbuktu.
Here are some of the places where Auburn's win has become a worldwide sensation:
