Auburn...a family tradition since 1905
I've been fortunate to witness in-person many, many special moments in AU football history. A few pop to mind:
1989 vs spuat (whole game)
Bo over the top vs spuat
2010 vs spuat in ttown
NIx to Sanders vs spuat
Scissum fumble vs spuat
Slack to Wasden vs UF
Duval field goal vs UF (in the wind and rain)
Cadillac 80 yd opening play scamper vs spuat
Tillman reverse vs spuat
Interception game vs LSU
42-41 vs Fla St at Tallahassee
I didn't witness punt-bama-punt in person. I was 13. My dad and I and a grade-school buddy listened to the game on the radio. I remember after the first punt block, we were really fired up when we thought we were gonna get the ball back with the score 16-10. Then the 2nd block and return. We were jumping up and down in my den. Then the point after. Then David Langner makes yet another big play (interception). Didn't see it (except for a couple of grainy replays on the Sunday morning "College Football Review"), but it's a special memory nonetheless. I had the Bham News headline tacked on my bulletin board for a couple of years, something like "Late AU Lightning Sinks Bama 17-16".
That'll do for a pretty good top 12 to start.

Alabama fans love Alabama football
Auburn fans love Auburn University
Fearless and true.
In the late 80's I went to the Au-Fla game in g'ville. He were hosted by a company I did business with so there were a bus full of gator fans riding from Orlando to the game. When the bus gets to the game we park in the "bull gator" parking lot in spot #1. We had a great time. Auburn was leading by 15 points midway thru the 4th qtr. Kerwin Bell came off the bench to lead uf to a td and 2 pt conversion. Auburn fumbled trying to run out the clock and Bell scored again and made the 2 pnt conversion. We lose by one. It was a long ride home being harrassed by the gator fans on the bus.
Fast forward (can't remember if it was the next season or 3 yrs later) we are playing UF at JHS. I have an opportunity to go to the game with the same guy who invited me to the UF bus trip game (only this time we're taking thier corporate plane fro Orlando to AU). UF was leading 3-7 and on the last play of the game we scored a TD in the corner of the end zone to win 10-7. After we scored I punched my gator fan in the arm (hard) and said "That's pay back!!". He just grimaced and took it! Very satisfying plane flight back home.
