Iron Bowl 80 Both of these teams have been playing football since the 1890s and they played each other until 1907. Then the series was suspended over per diem for the visiting team. They would not play for 41 years then at long last the Alabama general assembly, boosters and others got together and some say forcing the renewal of the series in 1949. It was played in Birmingham, hence the name Iron Bowl, until the 1980s, when Auburn insisted on a home and home series. That’s where we stand today.
