Oh Happy Day

On this day 115 years ago, the greatest college football rivalry began: The Iron Bowl.

Auburn defeated Alabama 32-22.
There is a historic marker on the site of the first Iron Bowl at the corner of Clairmont Avenue South and 32 Street South.
To see more pictures of the first Iron Bowl, come to the Tutwiler Collection of Southern History and Literature at the Central Library and look at the book The first Iron Bowl : Alabama versus Auburn, February 22, 1893 / compiled by Alvin W. Hudson.
Whether you say War Eagle, as I do, or Roll Tide, it was a great day for us.
