Iron Bowl Fans Streak

November 27, 2011 by staff 

Iron Bowl Fans Streak, They’ve made every Iron Bowl since its renewal in 1948. But as the streak continues, ex­tending to a remarkable 64 consec­utive games this Saturday at Jor­dan-Hare Stadium, their numbers continue to diminish.

Now, just two fans are remain­ing from the group local attorney Oakley Melton put together in the 1960s.

“When we started it, it was about 50-50 between Auburn and Alabama fans,” Melton said. “I did a lot of research with the alumni association and the A Club. When I first started it, we honored the players who had played in the first game in 1948. We had a good turn­out of players.

“We had a lot of fun together before the game. We always got together because after the game the loser was always ready to get the heck out of there.”
