Auburn Tigers National Championship History

1957 National Championship |  2010 National Championship​

The Auburn Tigers have won two national championships in college football.  The first was in 1957 and the second one, just recently in 2010.  Both teams were very special in how both seasons unfolded. 

 

In 1957, Auburn went 10-0 and was clearly the consensus #1 at the end of the season as reported by the Associated Press (AP).

In 2013, Auburn's "from the outhouse to the penthouse,"  as many AU players defined it, might be the greatest season of all time.  Coming off a 3-9 season in 2012, first year coach Gus Malzahn led Auburn to a 12-2 season and a national spotlight as they took on Florida State in the final BCS national championship game. The Tigers lost 31-34 but walked away champions in the hearts of many Auburn faithful.
