Fans tend to limit their highlight videos to games their teams have won. This Georgia fan, thankfully, does not, and we have some fantastic pre-game footage of paper shakers and those hats and spontaneous, public displays of Auburn affection.
Game-wise, we’re only allowed clips of Bulldog scores and Tiger penalties, but it’s cool – we not only know that Auburn wins the game, but that this is the game that won Pat Sullivan the Heisman Trophy (I swear there was another video of him doing it posted on YouTube for a while but I can’t find it).
Don’t let the #82 fool you – the afro that crosses the screen just before Shug dismounts from the shoulder to shake Dooley’s hand belongs to red-shirted, pre-#49 Thom Gossom.

Second greatest game I ever attended (Punt Bama game a clear #1.) Indeed, Sully won the Heisman that day. I recall one play where he was forced from the pocket and scrambled for 2-3 seconds then as they caught him and he was going down, he rifled a pass about 15 yards for a crucial first down. One of the best plays I ever saw.
We were seated on a hard bench and as the game ended we were standing on it and jumping up and down and damn if the bench didn’t split. It took a few of us but we managed to wrangle 3 ft of it out of the bolts and paraded around about w/ part of Stanford Stadium all the way back to the car. One of my frat brothers kept it hung in his room for a long time.
There were plenty of other shenanigans that weekend but since the statute of limitations may not have run out on some of them, I’d better not say more.
