SEC spokesman Chuck Dunlap confirmed Sunday that the Tigers should have drawn a 5-yard penalty for having two players with the same number on the field for the final play. That would have given the Gamecocks another chance at a touchdown in Saturday night's 42-35 loss.
Dunlap says the violation was discovered well after the game. Auburn had No. 1 Montravius Adams at defensive tackle and inserted receiver D'haquille Williams, who also wears No. 1, to help defend against a Hail Mary.
Spurrier said Sunday that the extra play probably wouldn't have made a difference and calls are missed all the time for both teams.
"I don't know if Dylan would've had a better throw or we'd have a better chance at a Hail Mary," he said.
