1960 Tigers
(Authentic Reproduction)





Fans noted a slight change in the helmet as the multiple stripe arrangement was replaced by a single one-inch burnt orange center stripe and the shell was the RK model. The large five-inch black side numerals were maintained and easily seen on the field. It was another fine year for Auburn linemen as the 8-2 record was forged beyond the rushing and placekicking of All American FB Ed Dyas (the nation's number one field goal kicker with twelve three-pointers) as he ran behind Ken Rice, again an All American and a first round pick by the Bills, and hefty tackle Billy Wilson. QB Bobby Hunt could not duplicate his soph success of '59 which at times hampered the offense. The number 13 AP rated team could only muster a fourth place SEC finish with an in-conference record of 5-2 in what had become the country's most competitive group with Ole Miss, Bama, Florida, and Tennessee joining the Tigers in the nation's top twenty.
