The 32nd Iron Bowl took place under messy skies at Legion Field in Birmingham, AL in 1967. The Auburn Tigers entered the game having been defeated three times that season, but still had a high confidence level, knowing they could take on the country's eighth ranked Crimson Tide.
Alabama had a three game winning streak against the Tigers, and had won seven of the last eight meetings. Auburn was hungry, very hungry.
Bama won the toss, and kicked off to the Tigers. But neither offense could get things going. Six straight punts, three from each team, is how the first quarter played out. Auburn was gaining more yards than Alabama, which gave them the momentum.
Alabama's defense was still fighting though, and the scoreboard still read 0-0. The rain and mud was taking its toll on both teams.
After the half, Auburn struck first, with a 21-yard field goal, making the score 3-0.
The play that made this game so memorable was Kenny "the snake" Stabler's "Run in the Mud". An option play where he out ran Buddy McClinton and got Alabama up by 6-3. The extra point was good.
This was a hard fought match up, but the Tiger's left Legion Field empty handed once again. Another "Moral Victory" awaited them in the locker rooms, where they publicly wept in front of the reporters.
Roll Tide Roll!
