Full Caption:
Ralph "Shug" Jordan commiserated with Paul "Bear" Bryant when they met after the 1972 game.  Auburn's 17-16 victory made Jordan one of the few ever to defeat modern football's winningest coach three times in four years.  However, Bryant held the upper hand, beating Auburn thirteen times and losing only five during the Jordan years.  Jordan's record of 176 victories, 83 losses, and 6 ties earned him a place in the National Football Foundation Hall of Fame along side Bryant and others.  Years earlier, during World War II, Jordan set a record few, if any, other coaches could match: participating in U.S. Army invasions in North Africa, Sicily, France, and Okinawa. -- Photo: Ralph Jordan
