Punt, Bama, Punt: Auburn scenery, Dec. 2, 1972 [Buck Fama! Gallery]

Exactly one year ago today, we posted two galleries: one with photos taken around Auburn the day before the 1972 Iron Bowl, the other with photos taken in Birmingham at the game.

Today we present the immediate aftermath of the game as seen in Auburn, gallery the first… with photos once again courtesy Larry Parker, and once again incredible…

Buck Fama. War Damn Eagle.
