Bowl Notes : COTTON

January 02, 1986

Had Jackson crossed the goal line in any of his three tries from the two-yard line in the fourth quarter, there likely would have been a little postgame discussion over a passing play that had taken place earlier in the drive.

On Texas A&M's 45-yard line, Auburn quarterback Jeff Burger was scrambling and pushed something like a jump-shot pass to Jeff Parks, who converted it into a 23-yard gain. Replays confirmed what everybody in the press box, in the stands and on the A&M sideline suspected--that Burger was beyond the line of scrimmage when he passed.
