AUBURN, Ala. (EETV) - Mayor Ron Anders and the City of Tuscaloosa's mayor, Walt Maddox, will continue the Iron Bowl wager tradition this year.
The losing team's mayor will donate to a charity of the other's choice. If Auburn wins, Maddox will donate $100 to the Exceptional Foundation of East Alabama. Anders will donate $100 to the Tuscaloosa Pre-K Initiative if Alabama wins.
"This tradition is a great opportunity to give back and highlight those who do excellent work in both the Auburn and Tuscaloosa communities," said Anders. "No matter the outcome, this wager is a win-win for those in need."
The tradition dates back to 2005, when former Auburn Mayor Bill Ham and Maddox started the wager.
Auburn and Alabama will face off in the Iron Bowl at Jordan-Hare Stadium on Saturday, Nov. 30, at 2:30 p.m.
