Auburn’s Takeover Schedule for July 1 on SEC Network
SEC Network Takeover (#SECNTakeover) continues Wednesday, July 1 with the Auburn Tigers taking over the national television network for 24 hours. With the help of men’s basketball head coach Bruce Pearl, Auburn selected 10 marquee television events from the vault* to re-live with fans. The day’s programming will also include two ESPN Films centered around Auburn royalty Bo Jackson, as well as the SEC Storied chronicling the athletic powerhouse built by Bo Jackson, Charles Barkley and Frank Thomas in the 1980s.
“The Auburn day on the SEC Network is a great opportunity to showcase all the moments and students that have made Auburn great,” said Director of Athletics Jay Jacobs. “It was important to give the Auburn Family the programming they wanted to see during our Takeover day, so we gave them an opportunity to vote on their favorite classic games. This day is for the Auburn Family.”
Auburn #SECNTakeover Schedule includes:
- 2006 Auburn vs. Florida (Football) – Undefeated Florida came to Jordan-Hare Stadium ranked No. 2 in the nation and the Auburn Tigers ranked No. 11. Auburn fans remember the blocked punt that helped hand the eventual national champion its only loss of the season.
- 2014 Auburn vs. Alabama (Soccer) – The Auburn soccer team won its third straight “Iron Bowl of Soccer” over Alabama in this overtime thriller. It also featured the return of Alabama player Abby Lutzenkirchen to Auburn’s campus after the passing of her brother, former Auburn tight end, Philip.
- 1999 Auburn vs. Ole Miss (Men’s Basketball) – One of the most dominant games from one of the most successful seasons in Auburn basketball history, the win over the Rebels helped the Tigers to a perfect 15-0 at home and an eventual SEC Championship.
- 2015 Auburn vs. Alabama (Softball) – Auburn and Alabama entered the game both ranked No. 5/6 in the polls. After a back-and-forth, high scoring game, Auburn battled back from a 5-run deficit for a win that led to most successful season in program history.
- 1982 Auburn vs. Alabama (Football) – Otherwise known as the “Bo over the Top” game, this classic Iron Bowl introduced to the college football a freshman running back from Bessemer, Ala., Bo Jackson.
- 2015 Auburn vs. Tennessee (Softball) – A comeback win gives Auburn softball its first SEC Tournament title in program history.
- 2003 Auburn vs. Alabama (Football) – Known as the “Go Crazy, Cadillac” game, running back Carnell Williams took the opening handoff 80 yards for the score. He later scored the final touchdown to give Auburn its second straight Iron Bowl win and extend what would be an string of six-in-a-row for the Tigers.
- 2011 BCS National Championship – It was the meeting of the top offensive teams in the country and the culmination of a season that saw Auburn go from a preseason No. 22 ranking to No. 1 in the country and complete a perfect 14-0 record. Led by Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton and Lombardi Award winner Nick Fairley, the game was won by a Wes Byrum field goal as time expired.
- 2013 Auburn vs. Alabama (Football) – “Kick Six” is the now famous term given to what many call the greatest college football game in history, the 2013 Iron Bowl. The game pitted No. 1 Alabama vs. No. 4 Auburn in the battle for the SEC West title. The game held up to its billing.
- 2015 Auburn vs. LSU (Men’s Basketball) – An improbable run in the SEC Tournament, Auburn entered as the 13-seed, winning three games in three days. The third win turned out to be a nail biting come-from-behind win over LSU secured by a 3-pointer by KT Harrell to send the game to overtime.
