AUBURN ~ in Atlanta since 1892!

Auburn vs. Georgia is the Deep South's Oldest Football Rivalry

The First game was played February 20, 1892, in Atlanta's Piedmont Park.  It was the brainchild of Auburn's George Petrie and Charles Herty of Georgia. Piedmont Park hosted several Auburn-Georgia games, and it all started in 1892 when Auburn beat Georgia 10-0.  According to legend, that first game is also the origin of Auburn's "War Eagle!" cheer.

The Auburn Creed  
Minimize
 
I believe that this is a practical world and that I can count only on what I earn. Therefore, I believe in work, hard work.

I believe in education, which gives me the knowledge to work wisely and trains my mind and my hands to work skillfully.

I believe in honesty and truthfulness, without which I cannot win the respect and confidence of my fellow men.

I believe in a sound mind, in a sound body and a spirit that is not afraid, and in clean sports that develop these qualities.

I believe in obedience to law because it protects the rights of all.

I believe in the human touch, which cultivates sympathy with my fellow men and mutual helpfulness and brings happiness for all.

I believe in my Country, because it is a land of freedom and because it is my own home, and that I can best serve that country by "doing justly, loving mercy, and walking humbly with my God."

And because Auburn men and women believe in these things, I believe in Auburn and love it.
-George Petrie (1945)
