Tuscaloosa, Auburn Mayors Make Iron Bowl Wager
City of Tuscaloosa Mayor Walter Maddox and Auburn Mayor Bill Ham Jr. will continue their tradition of an Iron Bowl wager to benefit local charities.
The two mayors have agreed that if the Alabama Crimson Tide wins, Ham will make a $100 donation to the Tuscaloosa Pre-K Initiative and if the Auburn Tigers prevail, Maddox will make a $100 donation to the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Lee County. Last year, Maddox made a $100 donation to the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Lee County following the Auburn win.
"The Iron Bowl is an exciting, passionate rivalry," Maddox said. "Mayor Ham and I are proud to leverage this rivalry to help charities that are close to our hearts."
This will be the 79th meeting between the Tide and the Tigers as they kickoff in Tuscaloosa on Saturday, Nov. 29 at 6:45 p.m.
