It might be the offseason, but talking about the Iron Bowl never gets old. There have been so many amazing performances and big-time plays between the Auburn Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide that can fuel college football fans forever. Winning the game gives these rivals the ultimate bragging rights and they?re not afraid to show it.
In 2019, it was the Tigers who claimed the rivalry game in a shootout at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Freshman quarterback Bo Nix was solid with two touchdowns and head coach Gus Malzahn?s defense held off Mac Jones, Nick Saban, and the Tide, 48-45, in the final SEC game of the regular season.
With the win, Auburn even knocked Alabama out of the College Football Playoff. So how did the Tigers celebrate? By hanging new victory banners at their indoor practice facility, of course.
Auburn?s Iron Bowl Victory Banners
Thanks to Justin Ferguson, who covers Auburn University for The Athletic, Auburn fans got a glimpse at the new victory banners. They are pretty sweet, too.
One in the Auburn Athletics Complex features a game picture with the final score, while two more in the indoor football facility feature a cool shot the stadium and a banner with each Iron Bowl victory on it.
LSU might have won the SEC championship game and the NCAA national championship last season, but these banners should make Auburn football fans scream ?WAR EAGLE? at the top of their lungs. That?s how much the rivalry football game means.
This Iron Bowl win was one for the ages. It was exciting from the opening kickoff until the end of the fourth quarter. You better believe the matchup at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa will rocking next season, too.
