You remember the Bruce Springsteen hit, Glory Days? I imagine if you scoured the front porches of residents across the great state of Alabama, you could find thousands of loyal Tide and Tiger fans who could tell you stories of their favorite Iron Bowl memories. Their eyes would light up and their voice would raise an octave or two as they began telling of the glory days of one of college football's biggest rivalries.
How could they not get excited at the opportunity to brag on their team's greatest Iron Bowl moments? It seems like more often than not when Alabama and Auburn play, it carries major implications for both teams.
So humor me, let us do a little recent reminiscing about some of the glory days from games gone by.
It seems like just yesterday Cam Newton was leading the 2010 Tigers to a thrilling second half comeback win in Tuscaloosa to propel Auburn to an eventual national championship.
And who could forget last year’s Alabama team that needed the win over an 8 win reigning national champion Auburn team to secure their own spot in the SEC title game to play for a shot at a national championship appearance.
