Auburn vs. Kentucky (1957)
"Auburn, with Billy Atkins in the starring role, defeated a stubborn University of Kentucky team 6-0 before 30,000 nerve-wrecked fans as the Plainsmen took their 16th straight triumph in Cliff Hare Stadium. The Wildcats, who entered the game a two touchdown underdog, battled the Tigers to a scoreless first half, which was a manly, leather popping contest. The outcome was very much in doubt until senior full-back, Billy Atkins broke through the Kentucky line, deflected a pitchout by quarterback L

Auburn vs. Furman (1956)
"Still smarting under the humiliation of their own mistakes in the opener, Auburn loosed its fury on Furman and finished with a 41-0 win before an estimated 15,000 in Cliff Hare Stadium. All told, Coach Shug Jordan's forces rolled up 587 yards, 524 of them on the ground, against the South Carolinians. The leading ground gainers were Tommy Lorino with 128 yards, Howell Tubbs with 93, and Jim Walsh with 89. It was a day of long runs with Lorino galloping 34 and Jimmy Cook running 21 for first-half

Auburn vs. Alabama (1956)
"Auburn rode the strong right arm of Howell Tubbs and the flying feet of Bobby Hoppe to a 34-7 triumph over cross-state rival Alabama in the '56 grid finale before 44,000 in Birmingham's Legion Field Stadium. The win was the Tigers' fourth straight of the season and their third crushing victory over the Crimson Tide in as many years Tubbs passed for one TD, ran for another, and accounted for 102 yards on five aerial completions, while Hoppe sped for 112 yards in eight carries and was a constant

Auburn vs. Miami (1954)
"Playing his best eleven men instead of alternating his famous X and Y units, Coach Jordan sent his charges against unbeaten Miami, ranked fourth nationally. After a scoreless first quarter, Miami intercepted a pass and returned it deep into Auburn territory. On fourth down, Garrigus lifted a 19 yard aerial to Tom Pepsin and Miami took the lead, 7.0. The score remained unchanged until midway in the third period. Taking an Auburn punt at their own 11 yard line, the Hurricanes advanced the ball to

Auburn vs. F.S.U. (1954)
"Coach Shug Jordan canned his famous X and Y team, and came up with a combination that served notice of things to come as Auburn got back into the IA in column with a 33-0 victory over the Florida State University Seminoles. Although the Tiger attack seemed sloppy at times, they moved at will, and after the first series of plays F.S.U. never appeared dangerous. From there the Plainsmen went straight home, with Free-man sneaking over half-way in the first period after recovering a fumble. In the

Auburn vs. Alabama (1954)
"The Auburn Tigers managed their first victory over Alabama since 1949 with a convincing 28-0 trouncing of the Crimson Tide. Bobby Freeman closed out his career with a brilliant performance in leading the Auburn attack. He received able assistance from the entire forward wall and the other starting backs Freeman accounted for the first touchdown with 12 seconds remaining in the first quarter, climaxing a 58 yard drive. Childress added the extra point and the men of Shug Jordan led at the half 7-

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

"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

"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)
