With the 80th Iron Bowl looming this Saturday, November 28th in Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, Coach John Ray and Doug Dean welcome special guest and Auburn legend David Housel. A veritable walking encyclopedia on Auburn vs Alabama lore and history, Mr. Housel brings perspective, humor, and insight to the discussion. Cohosts Coach John Ray and Doug Dean engage dialogue with Mr. Housel on whether the most intense rivalry in the nation has become nastier in the post-1970’s modern era, and his answer will surprise the millenials.
Coach Ray and Dean also analyze what Gus Malzahn, defensive guru Will Muschamp, and staff must do to find a way to pull what most would consider to be a shocker upset over the No. 2 in the nation ranked Alabama Crimson Tide. But would it really be a shocker, if you have an insight into the nature of this rivalry, and you consider that the 2013 Auburn Tigers were also, remarkably, a 10 ½ point underdog to the Tide in what would be immortalized as the “Kick Six” Iron Bowl. The answer looms just hours away in the Loveliest Village.
Tuning in with special interest and a “War Eagle” from Hugh Freeze will be the Ole Miss Rebels, who need an Auburn upset of the Tide and a win in the Egg Bowl to punch their first ever ticket to the SEC Championship Game in Atlanta.
