There doesn’t figure to be many empty seats in Coleman Coliseum tonight. Auburn comes to town for the basketball home finale, but some of the most anticipated action comes at halftime.
Since the Tide beat Auburn 42-14 on the football field this November, the Iron Bowl trophy will be handed back to Alabama tonight. The Auburn student president will sing “Yea Alabama” and there will likely be some jeering from the audience.
Take a look back at the scene from two years ago when Nick Saban and the football team accepted the trophy and made an unintentional comment that’s still bouncing around message boards. Notice the gasp when Saban refers to “the University of Auburn.”
In the spirit of equal time, here’s Auburn receiving the trophy last season. Gene Chizik took heat for using a certain word when saluting the crowd.
