The University of Auburn Tigers Football team is from Auburn University in Alabama. They are members of the Western Division of the Southeastern Conference (SEC) in the NCAA. Auburn officially began competing in intercollegiate football in 1892. The Tigers joined the SEC in 1932 as one of the inaugural members of the conference and the Tigers began competing in the West Division when the conference divided in 1992.
Auburn officially claims two national championships, but has been recognized with five national championships from NCAA documented selectors. Auburn has achieved seven perfect seasons, and won twelve conference championships, along with eight divisional championships. The Tigers have made thirty-eight post season bowl appearances; including ten historically major or BCS bowl berths (Sugar, Orange, Cotton, BCS Championship). The Tigers have the 12th most wins in FBS history with over 700 victories and have finished ranked in the Top 25 of either the AP or Coaches polls 37 times, including 18 top ten finishes (ranked 12th nationally for AP poll top ten finishes).
The Tigers have produced three Heisman Trophy winners: quarterback Pat Sullivan in 1971, running back Bo Jackson in 1985, and quarterback Cam Newton in 2010. Auburn has also produced sixty-six consensus All-American players, many all-conference team selections including All-SEC player and All-SEC academic, multiple MVPs and Rhodes Scholar athletes, and other academic honors.
Auburn's home stadium is Jordan–Hare Stadium, which opened in 1939 and becomes Alabama's fifth largest city on gamedays with a capacity of 87,451. Auburn's archrival is in-state foe Alabama. The Tigers and Crimson Tide meet annually in the Iron Bowl, one of the biggest rivalries in all of sports. The Tigers also maintain rivalries with SEC foes Georgia and LSU. The Tigers are currently led by head coach Gus Malzahn, Auburn's offensive coordinator from 2009 to 2011 and during the 2010 national championship season. He returned as head coach on December 4, 2012, following the departure of Gene Chizik. The Tigers are the reigning SEC Champions after defeating #5 Missouri 59–42 in the 2013 SEC Championship Game. Auburn faced #1 Florida State in the 2014 BCS National Championship Game, falling to the undefeated Seminoles, 31-34.
