Auburn vs. Furman (1955)
"After passing the Big Three test with flying colors, the Tigers returned to Cliff Hare Stadium to do a little home-work against Furman. And those who were there will tell you that Coach Jordan's boys had learned their lessons well, as they trounced the outmanned Purple Hurricane, 52-0. Breathing easily for the first time all season, the Plains-men gained a total of 467 yards, compared to Furman's 22, and held a 22-3 edge in first downs. There were no individual stars for Auburn this time—they
Auburn vs. Florida (1955)
"The scare given Auburn by Chattanooga was forgotten the following weekend when the Tigers whipped highly-rated Florida, 13-0, at Hare Stadium. There were offensive standouts this day, but where Auburn really shined was on defense. Such men as end Jimmy "Red" Phillips and guard Chuck Maxime constantly bottled up the feared Florida passing attack and very effectively stopped the Gators' pride and joy, scat back Jackie Simpson. Little halfback Alton Shell, battling for a starting position, saved t
Auburn vs. Clemson (1955)
"Auburn returned to the Gulf Coast area to face highly-rated Clemson, and this time there was no resemblance whatsoever to the inept squad which had lost to Tulane earlier in the season at New Orleans, as the Tigers steam-rolled over the Carolinians, 21-0, in Mobile. Howell Tubbs was the man of the hour—running the ball like a shifty-halfback and tossing two back-breaking passes to "Red" Phillips. And the whole Auburn backfield, led by a line having one of its best days, completely outshone Cl
Auburn vs. Alabama (1955)
"The Auburn Tigers put the finishing touches on one of the greatest seasons in Auburn history by defeating hapless Alabama, 26-0, at Legion Field in Birmingham. Once again, Howell Tubbs and Jerry Elliott supplied the offensive thrills for the afternoon, with Tubbs tossing two scoring passes to Elliott and taking one in for him. The Tigers' steady quarterback gained 68 yards rushing and completed five of ten passes for 78 yards. Joe Childress proved once and for all that he deserved every bit of
Auburn vs. L.S.U. (1938)
"No team in the South rose to a greater peak than did the Tigers in severely trouncing L.S.U., 28-6. The boys were invincible and the Bayou Tiger met his master in the Tiger from the Plains. The return of one Mr. Hatch Howell to the lineup had plenty to do with this win..." (Description from 1939 Glomerata)
