All my games have only been as a student became my parents are Bama fans and I wasn't able to make it to any games this year.
It would go something like this:
"The Rain Game"
2011 Chick-Fil-A Bowl
Not here for a long time, I'm here for a good time.
"Regardless of the situation, one of his coin mottos is to take the high road. That's what he's always going to do."
That 2011 CFA game just missed my list. I had a blast at that game for some reason.
Fearless and true.
72 vs Georgia Tech - First game to see at AU.
86 vs UGA - The Water Cannon game.
86 vs Bama at Legion Field - Trey Gainus making it on 4th down.
I almost put the 86 bammer game in there....we ended up parking (illegally) right next to the bammer band bus, and to watch those students loading up, crying and sad, was classic. There were rain showers, Fullwood running and not going down in the 4th qtr, the 4th down catch, breaking a 2 year slide to the mullets, the reverse...Great Game!!!
2010 National Championship (No Brainer)
2005 Auburn @ GA 31-30 (back and forth the entire game)
2010 LSU Cam and McCaleb outrunning Peterson for TD's
1986 Alabama Went to many games but the first time to see a victory.
1989 First Time Ever! enough said.
2010 alabama/1994 Florida tied. I was probably more excited after the 94 UF game.
Wow, tough question.
1) 2004 Georgia,for entire weekend atmosphere. (the end of that season didn't turn out like we wanted, but I imagine that's the closest we've come to recreating the 1989 feeling of a destiny game).
2) 2010 National Championship game: My favorite part wasn't the game itself. I fully expected Auburn to win. Not out of the squishy "faith" stuff. Just thought Auburn had the better team and wasn't going to lose to a team with an O-line that small. Anyway, my favorite was getting to my seat in the end zone early enough to just watch that place fill with orange, orange and more orange. Then, to see the band come marching down toward us in the pre-game, followed by that anthem and the most rousing "Waaaaaaaaaar Eagle" you'll ever hear for any majestic creature that's not actually ours. If I'd had this experience in January 2005 for the '04 team, it would be tops. That was my favorite Auburn team ever; we just had to wait six years to get the penultimate celebration that should have accompanied it.
3) Any away game victory in Athens or Baton Rouge. I absolutely love winning in those stadiums. Hasn't happened in Baton Rouge since I was a senior. Sad. (If I have to chose, so as not to cheat the question, I'll say 2005 Georgia. For sheer entertainment purposes, that 31-30 finish was the most exciting Auburn game I've ever attended. LSU in 1997 -- Dameyune and the gang over Cecil Collins and Rondell Mealey, 31-27 -- would be a close second.)
* No Alabama games listed. I'm self-aware enough to know how unhealthy my hatred for that program, team and fanbase really is. The fear/angst/disgust of losing ALWAYS outweighs the joy of winning. Perhaps the lone exception would be 2002, when that undermanned team pulled the upset. But, otherwise, I hate listening to those tubas, the thought of hearing RammerJammer. Seeing their strange combination of snotty fans in houndstooth and the toothless in camo. The whole thing. Hate it. Hate it too much to say I can ever really enjoy that game. Sad, I know. But it is what it is.

The NC, Monsoon game vs WV, and 2007 IB.
I Believe Auburn and Love IT...4 Life!
You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
