Alabama and Auburn did not play each other from 1908 to 1947. During that time Bama went 266-74-20 (2nd highest winning percentage behind Notre Dame), won 5 National Championships while Auburn had a very pedestrian record of 196-136-23 (74th among colleges that are still competing in D1). The two school presidents scheduled a game in 1948 under threat of the state legislature withholding funds from both schools. The 'Iron Bowl' was played at Legion Field in Birmingham with a 50/50 split of tickets. Auburn moved their home game to their campus in 1989. Alabama leads the series 42-34-1. The edge would be greater if the two school had played from 1908-47. Alabama has won 4 of the last 5 games. Auburn is a land grant school referred to as 'little brother' by many Alabama fans. UA fans calls AU fans 'booger eaters', 'boogs', and 'barners'. AU fans calls UA fans 'bammers'. I dated a barner in high school-it didn't work out. I am 0-4 at UA/AU games and will not be attending the game this year. I am face book friends with Harvey Up****. I will be checking back to answer all reasonable questions this week.
