Auburn’s first bowl trip and the only bowl
game to ever be played outside the United States. Auburn and
Villanova battled to a 7-7 tie in Havana, Cuba on New Year’s
day in 1937. Billy Hitchcock scored the Tigers’ only
touchdown of the game on a 40-yard run.
Garland Washington “Jeff” Beard could generally
be considered the father of modern Auburn athletics. Serving
as athletic director from 1951 through 1972, Beard hired legendary
coach Ralph “Shug” Jordan, increased the capacity
of what is now Jordan-Hare Stadium from 21,500 to 61,500 seats
and is responsible for bringing Auburn home football games
with Georgia Tech, Georgia and Tennessee to campus. His tenure
also produced the basketball arena now named in his honor,
the Wilbur Hutsell Track and Field complex and Sewell Hall.
Beard is one of only five Auburn athletic directors who also
didn’t serve as head football coach.
Bo over the top:
The climax to a 23-22 Auburn victory over Alabama in 1982
which broke a nine-year losing skid to the Crimson Tide. Bo
Jackson’s 1-yard leap over the Alabama goal line capped
a 66-yard drive and set the stage for what Auburn people consider
the Tigers’ “coming out” party in the 1980s.
