The teams played annually through 1907 until renewing the matchup in 1948. Alabama and Auburn have played every year since then.

Why is the Game Called the Iron Bowl?

The name of the Alabama vs Auburn rivalry game dates to 1964 from an interview with Auburn coach, Ralph “Shug” Jordan. When asked about his team being disappointed about not playing in a bowl game, he said the following. “We’ve got our bowl game. We have it every year. It’s the Iron Bowl in Birmingham.” Through the early 20th Century, Birmingham was a leading industrial city known for the production of pig iron, coke, coal, and steel. Through the 1998 season, all but four of the Iron Bowls were played in Birmingham.
