QB Bo Nix Reveals Why Auburn Always Believes It Can Beat Alabama
© John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports
Auburn freshman QB Bo Nix talked about why his team always has the mindset that they can go into the Iron Bowl against Alabama and walk away with a victory. Per AL.com...

“It’s just a culture thing. I feel like Auburn and just a few other teams, we’re the only ones that can consistently play with them. That’s something to be said for this school. It’s a mindset going in. It’s a rivalry. We just come to play every time we play them.”

This is why: When Auburn plays Bama they usually have nothing to lose and plays very loose. Bama often has a lot to lose. They play very tight especially at JH.

Last 20 years Auburn is 11-9 vs Bama. The thing that pisses the alumni off is that we should win our share vs Georgia and beat LSU in Red stick periodically.

“We just come to play every time we play them.” Well that’s a lie. Last year they lost by 31 points.

I was just happy for auburn they beat bama : ) but I still would not have mind if LSU had to play bama again and best their arse in the playoff by a bigger score

What a weird question to ask. Shouldn't every team believe they can win every time they take the field?

Truth, and at least two recent losses were still competitive: 2009 (Chiz's first year) saw Auburn lead until 1:24 to go and a last second Hail Mary deflected in the end zone. 2014 saw a combined 99 points scored (55-44) and was back and forth all game, though Bama did win by two scores.

auburn always has a chance bc they always have a solid defense. Good thing for bama that Jones is about as accurate as Bo.

Well in the 40 years I’ve been alive the series is almost dead even. I don’t think any other team that plays them every year can say the same.

You are correct: Auburn has won 20, LSU 16, Ole Miss 4 (on the field); Miss. State 7 (on the field); Arky 7 of 30 (didn't begin to play regularly until later than 40 years ago.

So you don’t come to play on other weeks, Bo? Should go out there every week to play.
