Auburn, Tuscaloosa mayors make Iron Bowl wager

Posted: Updated:
TUSCALOOSA, AL (WSFA) -

Mayors in the two cities where the Iron Bowl contenders reside are making a friendly wager on the outcome of the game. Now, it's up to Nick Saban, Gene Chizik and their crews to figure out which mayor writes the check.

For his bet, Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox says he's agreed that if the Crimson Tide loses, he'll make a donation to the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Lee County.

Should the Auburn Tigers lose, Auburn Mayor Bill Ham says he'll put his donation toward the City of Tuscaloosa Storm Recovery Fund.

The exact amount of the donations was not immediately known.

"The Iron Bowl means so much to the citizens of our respective cities and the people of Alabama. This wager has become a tradition for me and Mayor Ham, and it's all in good fun and camaraderie," Maddox said.   

This will be the 77th meeting between the Crimson Tide and Auburn Tigers as they kickoff in Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa on Saturday, Nov. 24 at 2:30 p.m.

The Tide is heavily-favored to win the game, with Auburn being considered as much as a 31-point underdog.

    Dylan Thompson threw for three touchdowns and No. 24 South Carolina's maligned defense stood strong on a fourth-quarter goal line stand to topple No. 6 Georgia 38-35 on Saturday night.
    No. 24 South Carolina's defense showed it's not nearly as bad as it looked two weeks ago - and maybe that No. 6 Georgia isn't the runaway favorite in the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division.

    Georgia can establish itself as a top-tier beast if it gets by South Carolina this weekend - and USC would drop to 0-2 in the league with a loss. Tennessee travels to Oklahoma, where Coach Bob Stoops doesn't believe the SEC is all-powerful.
