SECCG, 4th Q, 4 minutes left, ball at 50 yd line....3rd and 5
Yeldon is hit in backfield by Shawn Williams...then proceeds to carry him 5 yards to get first down...
next play Amari Cooper Touchdown!
I totally agree!
I was talking about this with my dad the other day. No one talks about that play because of what came after it. That play was huge. Kelly Johnson stoned Jarvis Jones too. My other favorite from that game were Lacy breaking a tackle with a spin move and taking it down the sideline and Rambo wanting NO part of him so Lacy just ran right at him anyways.

not underrated at all
Yeldon also picked up a blitz at the end of the LSU game a play or two before his game winning touchdown. Who knows how that game would have turned out had McCarron gotten hit hard on that play. I don't remember who the LSU player was, but he came through the line clean and Yeldon picked him up at the last possible moment. Not a lot of freshman running backs who could make that play.
THIS....I think everybody recognized that as a huge play.
GREAT analysis of this play on this link.

While I don't think it affected the final outcome, his run on 3rd and 3 right before halftime in the NC game set up the Jones catch and Lacy TD. He bounced off Te'o 3 yards behind the LOS and made about 10 yards. If Te'o had got him for a loss we would have probably punted.

Another play people forget about is our last series in the SEC championship game where it looked like Yeldon was going to be forced out of bounds to the boundary side and ended up staying in bounds. That helped us eat about 40 seconds more on the clock, which ended up costing Georgia at least two more plays at the end of the game.
The 2-point conversion was the most important of the year.
It was 4 down territory at that point :)
Exactly, this is BOL man! You better come with something much more obscure than Yeldon on third and 5 if you want to call it "the most underrated play" on this board. I've seen that play mentioned 20+ times round here.

While the two-point conversion obviously put more pressure on Georgia, since a FG wouldn't be enough, it was not the difference. They still would have tried to take the lead, and they would have run the same play, because as they've stated repeatedly it's intended to be 6 or incomplete. It only would have mattered if they got into a one-play-left situation (4th down or less than 3-4 seconds on the clock).
As for the 3rd-and-5 play, it's not even close to underrated. That play where Lacy seemed to get stuffed only to bounce it outside for a big gain is much more underrated.
Exact play I was so thinking about.. Yeldon knew he Had to have it which is taught by CNS..
Correct me if I'm wrong, but had we missed the two pointer, i believe the score would have been 30-28 at the end. Therefore UGA would have just spiked the ball and kicked a very short fg to take the lead with little or no time left on that final drive.

I'm afraid you're wrong. We would have gone for two again on the next touchdown. The score could have been 31-28, 29-29, 30-27, or 28-27, depending on how many two-point conversions succeeded.
Besides, you're missing the point. Obviously, if we didn't convert, we were putting ourselves in a hole. What I'm arguing is that the second point did not end up being that valuable at the end, unless you count added pressure. If it had come down to 4th-and-goal, then it would have been crucial.

When thinking of the SEC Championship game I don't think of Yeldon's first down prior to Cooper's td as under appreciated. I would have to say Clinton-Dix's interception with 1:30 to go in the first half is under appreciated. That interception stopped a scoring drive by UGA and lead to the Alabama FG before half. Instead of going into the half behind UGA we went into the locker room with the lead.
