Over the course of the last 60 years, Auburn has held Alabama scoreless in just four "Iron Bowls." Yes, four. And with 'Bama being ranked No. 1 in the country right now, it's highly unlikely that Auburn is going to make it five when the two teams do battle a week from Saturday. But if they do—if somehow, someway Auburn manages to hold the Crimson Tide to zero points in this year's Iron Bowl—one Auburn, Ala. car dealership is promising to give a bunch of customers free cars.
Here's how it works: If you buy a car from Lynch Toyota between now and November 29, you will automatically be entered into their free car giveaway. And if Auburn shuts Alabama out on November 30, Lynch Toyota will pay you whatever you paid for your car. Additionally, Lynch Toyota is going to give away $25,000 to one lucky person if Auburn wins the game but doesn't shut Alabama out. Lynch Toyota manager Alan Cox is hoping—praying!—that a shutout becomes a reality.
"We want it to happen," he says. "It's not something we're worried about. It's more something we're looking forward to."
Considering Alabama is entering the game undefeated, we wouldn't be too worried, either. There's a good chance that Auburn won't even win the game, let alone prevent Alabama from scoring. But it has happened four times in the past. So who knows, right? Er, yeah...
