Auburn legends weigh in on Iron Bowl win

AUBURN, AL (WTVM) -

Just two weeks after the miracle at Jordan-Hare against UGA, an Auburn play in the Iron Bowl is being called one of the greatest plays in football history, ESPN dubbing it "Kick Bama Kick."

Monday, we spoke to two Auburn legends and best friends who had a lot to say about the game.

Buddy Davidson began working for Auburn in the 1960s and began a record-holding game attending streak.

Saturday's Iron Bowl marked his 653rd game in a row. He can't say Saturday's Iron Bowl was the best game he's ever seen, but he does say the 109 yard run for the win with one second on the clock is the best finish he has ever seen.

His best friend David Housel is perhaps the most beloved athletic director in AU history.

"Just worry about what is ahead of you in the SEC and the BCS will take care of itself," he said on the BCS debate. "If we go to the championship game, great fine good, but if we don't will it take away from the miracle in Jordan-Hare?  No, will it take away from the Alabama game, no. So let's celebrate what we have and don't worry about what you are trying to get."

Housel says he was in Jordan-Hare Saturday night, but says that amazing finish made him feel like he was in heaven.

We jokingly asked Buddy Davidson is he was going to the SEC championship this weekend, thinking it would be an automatic yes considering his 653 game streak. Surprisingly, he said he was still looking for a ticket.
