OVERALL GAME GRADE — D+
Wallace made his first career road start in the Iron Bowl against the nation's No. 1 defense. That's a tough assignment, and it showed.
The true freshman finished 5-of-14 for 71 yards, two interceptions and no touchdowns. He failed to lead Auburn on a single scoring drive in his fourth game as a starter, but he did make a few nice throws along the way.
He moved the chains twice with a pair of clutch throws to Emory Blake on third-and long during Auburn's second drive of the game. His first throw of the second quarter also went for a first down. But Wallace's highlight of the game came on his first throw after leaving the game with an arm injury when he made a perfect pass to Emory Blake in between multiple defenders for 23-yards.
The low lights included a pair of interceptions, both of which were his fault. A high throw in the second quarter was tipped by his outstretched receiver for an easy pick. The second turnover came on another deep ball that sailed well past its target to an Alabama defender.
The play calling didn't give Wallace much of a chance to perform against 'Bama's backups in the fourth quarter as Auburn clearly wanted to end the game quickly with running plays. The Tigers didn't ask him to do much in this game, and he delivered.
