Alabama has only won the Iron Bowl once
for nine consecutive times.
AL - AU
'73 - 35-0
'74 - 17-13
'75 - 28-0
'76 - 38-7
'77 - 48-21
'78 - 34-16
'79 - 25-18
'80 - 34-18
'81 - 28-17
The other seasons to which you refer are probably the '59 - '68 seasons.
However, during that span, Auburn won 10-8 in '63, thus breaking up the consecutive wins.
Putting things in perspective, AL has won 38 of 69 Iron Bowls for an overall winning percentage of 55.0724%.
The last winning streak before AU was the three consecutive games AL won from '90-'92.
In fact, of the last 10 Iron Bowls (last decade), AU has won 7.
Since 1986, AU has won 13, for an overall win rate of exactly 50%.
Overall, as is clearly evident, when it comes to the Iron Bowl - one of the most fiercely fought collegiate rivalries - all bets are off!
Both teams have, over the years, proven themselves to be at least equally matched when they battle it out on the gridiron.
