The Blocked Punt, 1977

There have been two Auburn bars named not for a coach, a player, or a team, but for a single football game — the 1972 Iron Bowl. How rooted has “Punt, Bama, Punt” remained in the Auburn psyche? The first bar opened in the mid 70s. The other? Thirty years later. (Here’s how Bama remembered it.)

But before 17-16 there was The Blocked Punt, and there you could disco.

From a 1977 issue of "The Plainsman." Do The Langner!

And they had matches.

See the best “Punt, Bama, Punt” photos you’ll ever find here, here, and here.

Bama students vandalized their own campus with Auburn graffiti before the 1953 Iron Bowl

In 1953, a Bama student, either out of self-loathing, or in an attempt to rile his team to victory in the upcoming Iron Bowl, painted not just random doors and alleys of his own campus with Auburn slogans, but Denny freakin' Chimes. So when someone tries to stop you from relieving yourself on the Saban statue at this year's game, just tell them: "I learned it from watching you."
