Iron Bowl 75: Auburn vs. Alabama rivalry is an uncivil war | al.com
Last Tuesday, 48 Auburn students and administrators traveled to Tuscaloosa for Better Relations Day. Its been an annual event since 1948, when the football series was renewed after being suspended. Student Government Association representatives at both schools met to discuss joint initiatives.The SGAs sponsored gubernatorial debates together this year. Since 1994, Alabama and Auburn have collected almost 2 million pounds of food during an annual food drive.
My son is a junior at Auburn and a good friend of his attended this event in Tuscaloosa last week.
I grew up a ND fan and now live in the hear of the SEC where I root for Vandy and Auburn. I have never seen another rivalry that comes close to matching the emotion of Auburn-Alabama. It exemplifies all that is good, and some that is not so good, about Collegiate sports rivalries.
Don’t miss the game-it will begin Friday November 26 at 2:30 pm EST on CBS.
