It’s Iron Bowl week, and while we normally do one Throwback Thursday post during the week that just won’t do this game justice. There are too many incredible Iron Bowl moments, and it seems fitting to start with Bo Jackson in 1982 and the famed “Bo Over the Top” play.
With 2:30 left to play and the Tigers trailing by five, Auburn went for it on fourth and goal from inside the one yard line. They dialed up a play for the incomparable Bo Jackson and he used his high jump background to leap over the line and get in for the go ahead touchdown to give Auburn a 23-22 victory over the Tide.
The Tigers’ win ended Alabama’s nine-game winning streak over Auburn.
