Football is one of Auburn's oldest and most beloved institutions. Formally established as a varsity sport by Dr. George Petrie in 1891, Auburn's football team has proudly represented the school for over a century. The team shares some of the South's oldest college football rivalries with the University of Georgia and the University of Alabama-a rivalry tested annually in the Iron Bowl. Throughout their history, the Tigers have earned the honor of SEC Champions and a national championship and have been featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated; the team has produced many professional players and Hall of Fame inductees. Auburn football also boasts a very dedicated legion of fans, who love to cheer on their Tigers, both at home and away. The images contained within Auburn Football illustrate the team's impressive history, filled with legendary coaches such as Shug Jordan and John Heisman, and Heisman trophy-winning players Pat Sullivan and Bo Jackson. Auburn's football tradition will continue to delight fans and attract players for decades to come.
