Family Iron Bowl 2005 The Crimson Tide prevailed in a thrilling 70 - 56 win over rival Auburn on a hot sunny afternoon in Florida. Defenses were nowhere to be found as Alabama drew first blood on their opening possession to make it 7-0. After that, both sides traded scores until late in the second quarter when Bama went up by two touchdowns thanks to an interception return by David Hall. But Auburn would not be denied as Mike Hall caught a late touchdown pass to pull within 7 right before the half.
The second half started off bad for the Tide as Auburn Safety Teddy Hall picked off a David Hall pass intended for Richard Doviak and returned it 15 yards to set up another Auburn touchdown. The third quarter ended with Bama and Auburn tied 49-49.
Auburn would start the final quarter with quarterback Teddy Hall finding receiver Mike Hall on a deep post route for the score. The Alabama offense would answer with a touchdown on a 4th and long play. Quarterback David Hall scrambled to his right and found Matt Boyce in the end zone on a critical play. The Auburn offense only managed one first down before turning the ball over on downs. Alabama wide-out Marc Hall found the endzone next after a short catch that turned into a long run thanks to a missed tackle and a great move. Trailing 63 - 56, Auburn still couldn't move the ball and again had to turn the ball over on downs after the Alabama defense stiffened. The Tide iced the game with Megan Gray catching a 15 -yard touchdown pass from David which sealed the game and the victory.
