“Epic fail” may be too kind a phrase to describe Auburn’s fall from grace in just two seasons. But that doesn’t mean it’s not accurate.
Auburn is an Iron Bowl loss away from posting the worst record during the Associated Press poll era by a team within two years of claiming a national championship. Michigan State went 3-7 in 1967 and TCU went 3-7 in both 1939 and ’40. Auburn would be 3-9.
