Alabama and Auburn fans will recognize several players on the Iron roster; some big time Crimson Tide alums include Richardson, who balled out in the debut game and Quarterback Blake Sims. The Iron has ten former Alabama players on their roster for their debut season, and the Tigers have five, including Chris Davis, who returned the legendary kick six against Alabama in 2013.
