Auburn University played football in Oak Park

The turn-of-the-century saw the Oak Park areas as the scene of several skirmishes of regional football teams such as Cumberland University, Sewanee College, Clemson College, Auburn University and the University of Alabama.

One of the most noted of these matches was the Auburn and Sewanee conflict of 1896 with Auburn as the victor, 38 to 6.

However, in 1903 Sewanee claimed victory at 47 to 0. #wareagle #YSR
