Iron Bowl

The Iron Bowl is the name given to the Alabama vs Auburn college football rivalry. It is an American college football rivalry game between the Auburn University Tigers and University of Alabama Crimson Tide, both charter members of the Southeastern Conference. The series is considered one of the most important football rivalries in the annals of American sports. As the rivalry was played in Birmingham, Alabama for many years at Legion Field, the name of the Iron Bowl comes from Birmingham's historic role in the steel industry. Auburn Coach Ralph "Shug" Jordan is credited with actually coining it—when asked by reporters in 1964 how he would deal with the disappointment of not taking his team to a bowl game, he responded, "We've got our bowl game. We have it every year. It's the Iron Bowl in Birmingham." Alabama has a winning record against all Southeastern Conference teams and leads the series with Auburn 46–37–1. The game is traditionally played on Thanksgiving weekend.
