Florida used jockstrap takedown to beat Auburn in 1974

The 1974 Auburn Tigers were a good football team. They ended the season with a Gator Bowl victory over Texas and with just two losses – to Florida and Alabama.

One of the most questionable calls in Iron Bowl history explains the loss to the Tide.

Perhaps the indignity suffered by Secdrick McIntyre helps explain the loss to the Gators — the jockstrap, unlike the jerseys, did not tear away.
