The Iron Bowl is the official name of the annual football game between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Auburn Tigers. The series, considered one of the most heated rivalries in American sports, is currently a home and home matchup played the week of Thanksgiving between the SEC teams. The game was dubbed the "Iron Bowl" in 1964 by Auburn coach Ralph Jordan, referencing the strong steel industry presence and history in the Alabama city of Birmingham.
