AUBURN - It wasn’t an Iron Bowl for the ages, as so many are billed, but Auburn’s 26-14 win over Alabama at Jordan-Hare Stadium capped a remarkable turnaround for the Tigers as they defeated two No. 1 teams in a three-win span to earn a trip to the Southeastern Conference Championship Game and keep alive their national championship hopes.
