Auburn fans gearing up for the Iron Bowl

AUBURN, AL (WTVM) - Many football fans celebrated the holiday at their Iron Bowl tailgates in Auburn.

Several thousand RV's began rolling into town for the Iron Bowl weekend on Monday. Many families were able to get here earlier than normal because they were off from work for the Thanksgiving Holiday.

"We would love for Auburn to win this game. We need that bad. Win lose or draw we love our Auburn Tigers. And a tailgating Thanksgiving is just a bonus to throw in" Bob Miller said, an Auburn fan.

They say tailgating is the perfect way to celebrate family and football, their Tigers or their Tide and the Thanksgiving holiday.
