Favorite Auburn Games of All Time

Kool BellContributor IApril 29, 2009

The list of favorite games can be as long and varied as opinions in congress.

Mine, however, involves the guy in the picture accompanying this article.

First, let me say that this is Randy Campbell alongside my good friend AJ. SEC Champion quarterback of the Auburn Tigers. The picture was taken during one of my golf tournaments benefiting The Children's Hospital in Birmingham, AL.

Randy, was not what some might call a "pro" quality QB, but he had that something extra.

Benefiting from new coach Pat Dye and the new philosophy in the football program, Randy excelled at leading the team to victory.

This game would tell the world Auburn was back and ready to challenge any team for the victory.

Now on to the game...

No. 4 Auburn vs. No. 5 Florida

Bo Jackson scored on one of his big runs and Randy scored after a seven play, 57 yard drive from four yards out to take a 14-0 lead.

Randy was only six for 10 passing with 71 yds that day, but Bo was...well...Bo, and the rest of the team played great.

Lionel James scored from 17 yards away on a beautiful run for Auburn to take a 21-7 halftime lead.

Later, after a Florida fumble, Auburn regained possession, and Bo ran 80 yards for the TD.

In the end, Auburn had to fight off a rally by the Gators who scored 14 unanswered points in the Fourth Quarter to win 28-21.

This was one of the many BIG games played between these two schools.
