Former Alabama players share their favorite Iron Bowl memories
The Iron Bowl is known as one of the biggest rivalry games in college football. And it moved back to Bryant-Denny Stadium this year.
As much as the fans love the game, those who played in it love it even more. And a couple of former Alabama players shared their most memorable moments on the turf. Terry Jones, Jr. played 4 years with the Tide before being selected in the NFL draft in 2002 by the Baltimore Ravens.
Jones said one of his favorite Iron Bowl memories was being the first to play in Jordan-Hare Stadium and beating the Tigers.
“We were the first Alabama team to go into Jordan-Hare and play the game and beat them. It was one of those things that you always cherish. I scored a touchdown late in the game, but we did our thing and we had an opportunity to keep on moving on to Atlanta and play in the SEC Championship, “said Jones.
Former Alabama defensive back and 2-time collegiate national champion Haha Clinton-Dix said his favorite Iron Bowl was the last one he played in in 2013.
“You know, we had a chance to a three-peat in that game. And it’s one that I will remember for the rest of my life and because of the passion we played with throughout my career here in Tuscaloosa,” said Clinton-Dix.
Both former players gave their score predictions for the outcome of this year’s Iron Bowl game and they both picked Alabama to take the win.
