How well do you know the Auburn football program? We took a look back throughout its history and uncovered 20 interesting facts about the Tigers.

.613 win percentage: The Tigers have won 741 of the 1,209 games they’ve played all-time, dating back as far as 1892. In regular-season games the Tigers are 719-406-45, good for a win percentage of .615. In 39 bowl appearances the Tigers are 22-15-2, resulting in a .564 win percentage.

How the Tiger met the Eagle: As legend has it, at Auburn’s first football game in 1892, a showdown with the University of Georgia, an old Civil War soldier sat in the stands with an eagle he had found in battle. During the game the eagle broke free and soared over the field, inspiring fans in attendance to chant “War Eagle!” It has now become tradition for an eagle to soar across Jordan-Hare Stadium before the start of each football game, and the cry “War Eagle!” now functions as a greeting in the Auburn community.

Auburn knows Bo: Regarded as one of the greatest athletes of all-time in any sport at any level, Bo emerged on the national scene as an Auburn Tiger in the mid-1980s. In four seasons as a Tiger Jackson amassed more than 4,300 yards rushing and 45 total touchdowns from scrimmage. He averaged at least 5.5 yards per carry in each of his four seasons and at least 6.5 yards per carry in three of his four years as a Tiger. He was the winner of the 1985 Heisman Trophy, an honor with origins connecting back to Auburn (we’ll get to that) and the first overall pick in the 1986 NFL Draft. He would go on to earn Pro Bowl honors in the NFL and All-Star honors as a Major League Baseball player for the Kansas City Royals.

The Year of Cam: Jackson is regarded as one of the greatest Tigers to ever don the uniform, but Cam Newton may have had the best single season of any Auburn player ever. In 2010, his lone season as Auburn’s quarterback, he led the Tigers to a perfect 14-0 record and victories in the SEC and BCS championship games. He threw for more than 2,800 yards, tossed 30 touchdowns against only seven interceptions, and also rushed for 1,400 yards and 20 touchdowns as the leader of a perfect season. Like Jackson, he was the 2010 Heisman winner and the No. 1 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft by the Carolina Panthers, for whom he still plays.

Don’t forget Pat: And while many fans born in the last 30 years after the Jackson era on the plains may not recognize his brilliance, quarterback Pat Sullivan was the original Auburn football legend. Although passing wasn’t as prevalent during Sullivan’s career from 1969-71 as it is today, he still threw for more than 6,500 yards in three years as a starter, and he tossed 54 touchdown passes in addition to running for 18 more. He won the 1971 Heisman Trophy and his career record at Auburn was an impressive 26-7, including three bowl appearances.

Heisman was once a Tiger himself: The last three names listed involved facts surrounding Auburn’s three Heisman winners. But many don’t realize that John Heisman, the legendary coach for which the award is named, once coached at Auburn for five seasons from 1895-99. His teams were 12-4-2 in 18 games during those five seasons, although there were no bowl games and no Associated Press poll during that time.

Don’t forget the other Pat: Pat Dye might not be the longest-tenured coach in Auburn history (we’ll touch on the coach who is in a bit), but he’s absolutely the most successful. In 12 seasons as the head coach from 1981-92, Dye won nearly 70 percent of the games he coached, including six victories in nine career bowl appearances. He’s the man who recruited Bo to Auburn and who coached Bo to his Heisman Trophy, and he’s also the head coach who led Auburn four SEC titles in seven years including three straight after Jackson’s departure for the NFL and MLB.

12 undefeated seasons, 2 titles: The Tigers have actually finished with an unbeaten record 12 times in its 120-plus years of football, yet they claim just two national titles in their history: The 2010 championship with Newton leading the way, and the 1957 championship. The AP voted Auburn as its No. 1 team in ’57 after it closed the year 10-0, although it was ineligible for postseason play at that time due to NCAA sanctions. Six of the 10 undefeated seasons that did not result in a national championship took place before the start of World War I, and seven took place before the SEC’s inaugural season in 1933.

The lost season of ’04: One of Auburn’s more recent undefeated seasons stands as one of the reasons the NCAA shifted from the BCS formula to a four-team playoff. The 2004 Tigers, led by quarterback Jason Campbell and tailbacks Ronnie Brown and Cadillac Williams, closed the regular season with an 11-0 record before topping Tennessee in the SEC championship game by a 10-point margin. Still, Auburn was one of three schools to close that year with an undefeated record, and it found itself as the odd team out of the national championship equation despite finishing unbeaten in a power conference. Auburn took down Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl to finish 13-0, while USC toppled Oklahoma in the battle of the other two unbeatens in the BCS title game. Auburn is regarded as an unofficial national champion by a number of polls from that year that slotted the Tigers No. 1 when all was said and done.

Founding member of the SEC: Auburn is one of 10 founding members of the SEC still in the conference today. The SEC was formed in December of 1932 when the Southern Conference split into the Southeastern and Southwestern Conferences. The other founding members of the SEC still belonging to the conference are Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.

Two title stretches, three title droughts: Auburn has won eight SEC titles in its history, but it won seven of those titles in two different decade-long stretches. The Tigers went 24 years after the SEC was formed without a conference title, winning its first in 1957 before suffering another 26-year drought without a conference crown. It snapped that streak in 1983, and from 1983-89 the Tigers won four SEC titles, ironically with three of those coming after Bo Jackson left for the NFL. It then went another 15 years without a conference title and then won three more from 2004-13.

82 years, 12 coaches: Before World War I, it was uncommon for an SEC school to hold onto a coach for more than three or four years at the most. But upon disregarding those years due to a different culture about the sport, Auburn has had just 12 coaches in the last 82 years, five of which served on the plains for at least nine consecutive seasons. For what it’s worth, the Tigers had 11 coaches in their first 16 years of football from 1892-1907.

The reign of Shug: No coach, not even Dye, maintained a longer tenure at Auburn than Ralph “Shug” Jordan, who coached the team for 25 seasons from 1951-75. In that time Jordan led Auburn to 12 bowl games (appearing in a bowl game was much more difficult during that time), and he won 175 of the 265 games he coached at Auburn.

Better since the split: The Tigers have won at least a share of the SEC West eight times since the SEC split into two divisions in 1992. However, because it often finished tied atop the West standings, Auburn has only played in five SEC championship games among those eight seasons, posting a 3-2 record including a 3-0 record since 2004.

Not just ‘Bama: Most Auburn fans will tell you the Alabama Crimson Tide is Auburn’s biggest rival, and most casual fans would perceive Alabama as Auburn’s arch nemesis. However, Auburn has actually played four other opponents more than it has faced Alabama in its history, which doesn’t mean the Tigers hate other schools more than Alabama, but it does mean they have rivalries that stretch further into history than the Iron Bowl. The Tide and Tigers have squared off 79 times in history dating back to 1893, but Auburn has actually faced Georgia (118 meetings), Georgia Tech (92 meetings), Mississippi State (88 meetings) and Florida (83 meetings) more than it has faced Alabama.

Deep South’s Closest Rivalry: Auburn’s longtime rivalry with Georgia is known as The Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry, as it dates back to 1892, the inaugural season for both programs. And in all that time, neither side has managed to gain an edge over the other. Obviously the all-time series lead has changed hands a few times through the years, but as it stands today the two sides are deadlocked at a 55-55-8 record against one another.

Iron unkind: Auburn and Alabama have maintained a relatively even rivalry throughout the years, and in more recent years the two schools have battled in what is seen as the premier rivalry in college football. (They’ve also combined to assert Alabama as the best college football state in the land.) However, after splitting the last two meetings the Tide maintains a 43-35-1 all-time record against Auburn, with the lone tie coming in 1907. Auburn led the series through its first 16 meetings until 1951, when Alabama evened its all-time record against Auburn, won again the next year to assume the series lead. Auburn would take the lead back from 1955-61, but Alabama has maintained the lead uninterrupted since its 30-3 rout in 1965.

Toomer’s corner stays strong: Toomer’s Corner sits at the threshold of downtown Auburn and the AU campus, named for Toomer’s Drugs, which has sat on that corner since the 19th century. Toomer’s Corner has served as a rallying point for Auburn fans for much of its football history, and it became a tradition for fans to “roll the corner” by throwing rolls of toilet paper onto the two large oak trees that sat at the corner. However, those trees were cut down in 2013 after they were poisoned by Alabama fan Harvey Updyke.

12 Hall of Famers: Auburn claims 12 inductees into the College Football Hall of Fame (eight players and four coaches) and that number is almost certain to grow upon the eventual induction of Newton. However, for now the Tigers claim Sullivan and Jackson as well as Jimmy Hitchcock, Walter Gilbert, Tucker Fredrickson, Terry Beasley, Tracy Rocker and Ed Dyas as its Hall of Famers. It also claims Dye, Jordan, Heisman and “Iron Mike” Donahue (head coach from 1908-22 and winner of four Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association titles) as its Hall of Fame coaches.

Pajama party: In 1930s, the SEC’s inaugural decade, Auburn was prepared to host conference rival Georgia Tech for a game on the plains. However, the night before the game, some Auburn ROTC cadets greased the railroad tracks near the station in Auburn, rendering the train incapable of stopping where it intended. The train eventually came to a halt five miles away, Georgia Tech had to walk the distance back to the stadium, and Auburn won 45-0 as a result. Auburn fans now honor the tradition with a parade through downtown, often donning pajamas to honor the students who snuck out of their dorms that night.
