Auburn vs. Alabama 1972
score: Auburn 17, Alabama 16
Punt Bama Punt! One of the most famous games ever played. You can read about this game on Wikipedia...ESPN lists this game as one of the top 100 games.
Once again, Susan at Between Naps on the Porch is hosting Tablescape Thursday...Thanks so much for giving us a place to share ideas!
It's that time again... SEC FOOTBALL is back! It's time to plan fabulous tailgate menus and head to the nearest stadium or television. College football is back!!!
At my house, that means getting out all the Auburn memorabilia; the football blanket, the helmets, and the pom poms, and get ready to feed a crowd. All the sons and their friends love to watch Auburn Football with my AU football fanatic Hubby. (I think he bleeds burnt orange and navy blue!) For those who have to work during the game, texting scores and big plays will definitely take place. Living so far from Auburn (Alabama), we only get there 2-3 times a season for games...thankfully college roommate still lives in town and is gracious enough to allow us to visit. (I will share tailgating with this group later in the season.) WAR EAGLE!
There's no doubt that Auburn fans live in this house! On the table you will find pom poms saved from games- gone- by. There's a bobble head doll, ticket stubs, a football classic book, autographed footballs, tigers, a tiger tail, and even condiments. On the side table you will find plates and cups ready for piling on the food. Yes...we do it up BIG at our house.
This hat was the first baby gift our first son received. He went to Auburn.
Footballs autographed by the team and by Coach Tommy Tuberville- usually they are proudly displayed on his office shelf.
This week's buffet-style tailgate menu:
Starters - Buffalo Wing Dip with corn chips (we like Dorito's Scoops)
Celery Sticks and Carrot Sticks
Barbequed Pork Sandwiches with
"Grandaddy's secret sauce"
Bakery Sandwich Buns
7 Layer Salad
Southern Praline Pecan Cake
ps: Hurley and Rowdy are already getting excited about football....notice their attire! And when we find where Hurley has hidden her AU t-shirt, she'll have that on, too!
