Every year, whether it's played in Auburn's Jordan-Hare Stadium or Tuscaloosa's Bryant-Denny Stadium, the debate rages between Crimson Tide and Tiger fans 365 days a year. But no matter which side you are on, the "Alabama-Auburn Rivalry Football Vault" has something for you. Designed as a treasured scrapbook, this 144-page narrative history highlights the 40 greatest games of the rivalry between the schools. Co-author David Housel, Auburn University's former sports information director and athletic director, handles the great moments for the Tigers, while longtime University of Alabama athletic administrator Tommy Ford follows suit for his Crimson Tide. Both authors combine thrilling game action with personal stories, some never-before-published, providing a one-of-a-kind view of the rivalry found nowhere else. Ralph "Shug" Jordan, Paul "Bear" Bryant, Van Tiffin, Bo Jackson, Pat Sullivan, Johnny Musso, Joe Namath and Terry Beasley — all of the greatest names in the history of the Iron Bowl are here. You also get a look at why the schools didn't play for 41 years and a feature on Birmingham's Legion Field, the site of 47 games in the series from 1948-98. You will also find never-before-published vintage photographs, artwork and memorabilia — all drawn from both schools' extensive campus archives. Tucked into sleeves and pockets are nearly 80 historic replicas waiting to be discovered, including game programs, tickets, press passes and newspaper clippings. All of this and more is waiting for you inside the "Alabama-Auburn Rivalry Football Vault."
