The most heated rivalry in college football will be renewed next weekend as the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Auburn Tigers face off in the 79th Iron Bowl.
Plenty of Iron Bowl stars from years gone by have gone on to bigger and better things in the NFL. But a score of former Tide and Tiger legends have gone on to make a name for themselves in the business community.
For the past four years, Auburn Associate Professor Teresa Gore has used a simulated exercise to teach students how to treat patients with infectious diseases. This year, senior nursing students participated in a simulation of how infectious diseases such as Ebola can easily spread to health care workers through patient care.
Recently, the simulation lab in Miller Hall became a treatment center where students cared for a manikin (simulated patient), a 9-year-old boy named Jason who has cystic fibrosis and is suffering from bacteria-resistant pneumonia.
While many Auburn fans are sore about the Tigers loss to Texas A&M last week, that upset didn't keep the university from helping out an Aggie in need.
Recent Texas A&M graduate Layton Miller learned just that after losing his Aggie ring in Jordan-Hare Stadium during Saturday's game.
In an e-mail sent to The Aggie Network, Miller said he was impressed by the great lengths the Auburn fans and grounds crew went to in order to help him find the ring.
