There are many great rivalries in sports: Yankees-Red Sox, Michigan-Ohio State, North Carolina-Duke. But they don't compare to the venomous and consuming in-state college football rivalry that is Alabama-Auburn. With no pro sports, the state of Alabama centers around one game in the year: The annual meeting between the two universities called the "Iron Bowl." And you could not script what has transpired in the state in the past two years. On the field, each school celebrated a national title, Heisman Trophy winner and Iron Bowl win. Outside the lines, the rivalry has taken a twisted turn, with a stunning tale of poisoned trees and a historic force of mother nature that brought both sides of this split state together.

ESPN is relaunching their 30 for 30 series as ESPN Films presents, including a documentary on the Alabama-Auburn rivalry, set to premiere on Tuesday, November 8. The first film "Catching Hell", focused on the Bartman play and was fantastic. Hopefully this will be as good.
