Mayors of Auburn, Tuscaloosa wager on Iron Bowl

Posted: Updated:

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — The mayors of Auburn and Tuscaloosa are putting some money on Saturday's football game between Auburn University and the University of Alabama.

Auburn Mayor Bill Ham and Tuscaloosa's Walt Maddox have $100 riding on the outcome of the Iron Bowl.

If Alabama wins, Ham will contribute $100 to the Tuscaloosa Pre-K Initiative. If Auburn wins, Maddox will donate $100 to the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Lee County, which includes Auburn.

The mayors make a bet each year, but the stakes are higher for this year's game in Auburn. Last year, Ham gave $25 to Tuscaloosa's tornado recovery fund after Auburn lost to 'Bama at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

This year's game is at 2:30 p.m. Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Alabama comes is ranked No. 1, and Auburn is No. 4.
