Nov 29, 1958: Auburn wins its 24th straight game as the No. 2 Tigers avoid an upset by defeating their rival Alabama 14-8. Trailing in the fourth quarter, Crimson Tide quarterback Bobby Jackson leads team down to Auburn's 28-yard line with 1:26 left, but Tiger halfback Lamar Rawson deflects Jackson's pass at the goal line to secure the win.
