The 2023 Alabama-Auburn Game

27 - 24 Alabama

In the 2023 Iron Bowl, Alabama prevailed over Auburn in a dramatic fashion, culminating in a 27-24 victory. The game was marked by Alabama’s uncharacteristic errors, including 72 yards in penalties, a missed field goal, and allowing Auburn to gain 244 rushing yards (the most the Crimson Tide had conceded all season). Despite these setbacks, a critical play in the final minutes of the game overcame a seven point deficit for the Crimson Tide. Jalen Milroe, who had a strong performance with 107 rushing yards and completing 67% of his passes for 259 yards, delivered a crucial 4th-and-31 pass to Isaiah Bond for a touchdown, giving Alabama the lead. The victory was sealed by a Terrion Arnold interception on Auburn’s final snap. This win marked Alabama’s eighth in the last ten Iron Bowls, and it kept their hopes alive for the College Football Playoff, as they moved to an 11-1 record.
