Auburn's Daniel Carlson is one of the nation's best kickers.
So it's no surprise he thinks he just might have made that now famous (or infamous, depending on who you root for) 57-yard field goal attempt by Alabama's Adam Griffith in the 2013 Iron Bowl.
“I mean, I like to think so, but maybe I’ll get an opportunity Saturday," Carlson said Tuesday. "But we’ll see.”
Auburn's Chris Davis returned that missed kick 109 yards for the winning touchdown on the game's final play. The Tigers went on to win the Southeastern Conference championship and play Florida State in the national title game.

Carlson is a three-time finalist for the Lou Groza Award given to the nation's top placekicker. As a former finalist, he can vote for himself.
"They told me to do it last year, because last year I guess I didn’t know that I could’ve voted for this past year after going the first time as a finalist," Carlson said. "I guess all finalists are part of the selection committee. There’s 300-something people _ coaches, former kickers, NFL kickers and stuff, a mixture of guys and girls, so it’s pretty funny to be able to do that.”
