2017 Iron Bowl: Auburn Beats bama 26–14


That’s how Auburn beat Alabama today. Kerryon Johnson put his on the line till he couldn’t give anything else. But, what he gave—along with every Tiger on the team—was enough against the No. 1 team in the country—again.

It was a weird game, with some things we hadn’t seen before and others—from both teams—we certainly didn’t expect.

It was something we had seen before, however, that allowed Auburn to hold back the tide—DEFENSE.

The one thing we couldn’t defend—the field.

War Eagle!

  1. Just after the Jump Pass TD… Did anyone notice the Nate Craig Meyer End Zone Stare Down similar to Ricardo Louis after the Prayer in Jordan Hare? That for me was epic channeling of a similarly euphoric moment when absolutely no celebration is needed. Just stalking the end zone like a tiger and taking in the moment while the end zone crowd erupts into a thunderous roar of delirium and there is this total connection between the triumphant player and his fans. Entertainment does not get much better than these riveting few seconds. In all my time as a sports fan, I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
