    Re: What was your most memorable Alabama vs. Auburn game?

    Surprised no one listed the 2009 game. Last minute heroics allowed Alabama to win their first championship in 17 years.

    Re: What was your most memorable Alabama vs. Auburn game?

    Me too! I was a freshman, marching snare with the MDB. After the kick (which you could actually hear), I remember drums, sticks and cymbals flying around....bedlam!! Best football game I've ever witnessed. I still have my drumsticks from that game and use them every time I go back and march with the alumni band!

My brother answered the phone, and when the operator said it was a collect call from Trina & asked if he would accept the charges, he yelled no and then slammed down the phone.

    The 1985 game took off in the fourth quarter. Shula went for the kill leading 16-10, but Kevin Porter intercepted in the end zone. Auburn then drove methodically but needed a fourth down to tie it. Then they missed the PAT.

    Oops! Tide had 12 men on the field. Second PAT good and Auburn up, 17-16. Oops! Somehow Tide had 12 men on the field again!! Auburn kicked off from the 50 and pooched it. Somehow, five Tide players nearl collided and missed the ball. Thankfully it went out of bounds.

    One play later, the future traitor bolted 74 yards for a TD. The missed two made it 22-17. Auburn got the ball back and again drove methodically downfield. The most critical play turned out to be a late hit by Kermit Kendrick on an Auburn player. Instead of first & ten at the 27, Auburn was at the 12. They eventually scored but missed the two, so with 58 seconds left.

    A touchback put it at the 20.

    Shula's first pass was into triple coverage & nearly picked off. Shula got sacked on the 12 to make it 3rd and 18, leading to the last time out with 37 seconds left. Shula hit Traitor at the sideline for fourth & 4 on own 26 with 29 seconds left.

    Tide ran a great reverse with Shula throwing the key block and Al Bell gained 20 yards to make it first and 10 at the Tide 46 with 21 seconds left after Bell got out if bounds. Shula threw into double coverage incomplete.

    The next play was great: no rush, Shula looking, looking....he hit Greg Richardson at the right hash on the 44. The Auburn defender grabbed him almost immediately but GR got out of bounds at the 36 with six seconds left. Little GR was tiny but dragged the defender to the sidelines.

    Rushed onto the field quickly and no time to think, Van Tiffin launched a missile into the Birmingham night, a 52-yard bomb into the breeze. It was good. And it happened so fast it was unreal. Frank Broyles even said his heart couldn't take it. A few hundred fans rushed the field.

    Consider this: the final 37 seconds only took 2:49 of real time to play and included an incomlete pass, a reverse, and covered 88 total yards.

    Frank Broyles: "That's the most fabulous fourth quarter I have ever seen in my life. I don't EVER remember such a fantastic finish."
    I'll always look back as I walk away
    This memory will last for eternity
    And all of our tears will be lost in the rain
    Til I find my way back to your arms again
    But until that day you know you are
    The queen of my heart

    Re: What was your most memorable Alabama vs. Auburn game?

    1976, I know not a banner or memorable game, but I had proposed to my future wife the week before, her and her entire family were (and still are)aubies. Her dad graduated there.

    I took her and my obnoxious Alabama fan nephew to the auburn Game, We had lost that year to Ole Miss, Georgia and Notre Dame. Not a banner year but it was still Alabama-auburn. Pourng rain at Legion Field that day and we took it to auburn, like 38-7, and made the fiance sit through the entire game. To make things worse, I drove her through the Tuscaloosa campus on the way back home to Mobile that night. My nephew was a typical 8 year old smarta__
    and he didn't dissapoint. We got married December, one month later and still married 36 years later. Thats the only time we've watched the game together since.

    Iron Bowl 2008 - 36-0. After 6 long years this was the perfect way to snap the barns streak.

    Re: What was your most memorable Alabama vs. Auburn game?

    While my first two favorites are 1985 and 1999, a third favorite would have to be 2001 for quite a few reasons. First of all, 2001 in particular was a bad year, naturally because of what happened on 9/11/01, and the season had been rather forgettable up until the Iron Bowl. Andrew Zow started for an injured Tyler Watts and had a huge game. We also had a great rushing performance with Santonio Beard running for 199 yards and Ahmaad Galloway running for 127 yards. We sent the fans home just minutes into the third quarter in a 31-7 route.
    When my grandma left this life, I didn't say bye. I said see you later.

    RIP, Grandma. Forever in my heart.

    If it was a 30 minute game it would have been by far my most positive memorable moment.

    1971.....#3 Alabama VS #5 Auburn.......
    Both teams came into the game undefeated. Auburn had Heisman Trophy winner Pat Sullivan and his All-American receiver Terry Beasley.
    We had Johnny Musso at running back, anchored by Terry Davis at quarterback.
    Musso ran all over Auburn 31-7 with a sore toe. This was the first Alabama Auburn game I remember watching on TV.
    It is a sentimental choice of course.

    Got to go with 1985 - "The Kick." I was sitting right smack dab in the middle of a herd of Auburn fans. You could have heard a pin drop in that section (except me screaming)

    Re: What was your most memorable Alabama vs. Auburn game?

    From just the ones I attended it was the '92 game. I had lived in Tampa about 4 years me & a buddy drove all night thru the worst cold rain ever. Got a room in Bham got up early drinking coffee & there was Dye on tv announcing he was retiring.

    Made for a great day.

    I do have to say the 2009 at API was by far my favorite, that team never quit.
