Elephants & Eagles: The Most Heated Rivalry in Sports

Today we're going to talk about the best college football team in America (I go to Alabama, obviously I'm a fan), and the biggest rivalry to ever hit the college football stage. In 2011, ESPN released Season 1, Episode 9. Roll Tide/War Eagle. Clearly this organization is run by men, because- seriously? that's the best name you could come up with? If you want to view the interesting documentary, you can purchase it immediately from and watch it over the internet. I highly recommend it, especially if you aren't familiar. Alabama and Auburn are two of the top schools in college football every year- and of course being in the same state, their rivalry is ferocious. Each year they meet up in the Iron Bowl, which has been held for a while during college rivalry week, during Thanksgiving Break. Every 6 years or so, because of the SEC East and West rotation, the schools play during the regular season as well- which is a whole separate thing I'd have to explain. If you didn't have a chance to watch the game this weekend (spoiler alert: Bama won) then you missed out. It's always filled with unexpected moments and a passionate crowd. If you did miss it, you're in luck. The entire game is pasted below.
