AUBURN, Ala. (WRBL) — Auburn University legend Buddy Davidson has passed away. He was 82. 

Davidson has one of the longest game-attending streaks in college football with 700 consecutive Auburn University Football games.

The streak, stretching more than six decades, began when Davidson was a manager on Auburn’s 57’ national championship team. He went on to work for Auburn. Game 700 was Auburn and Ole Miss on Oct. 7, 2017. 

News 3 is expecting a statement from Auburn University. 

Meanwhile, David Housel said it best in a Tuesday morning post: There was no greater Auburn man than Buddy Davidson.

News 3 will let you know the arrangements when they are announced.
