All-American and record-setting swimmer Maggie Bowen waves to the crowd at halftime of the A-Day game. Coach David Marsh and the entire women's team was recognized to honor their national title, which is the first women's NCAA crown in Auburn history.
Running back Rudi Johnson was back on the Auburn campus to take in the game and see some familiar faces. He said that he enjoyed his first season as a Cincinnati Bengal but hopes for more playing time this season behind starter Corey Dillon.
A couple of fair running backs in their own right turned fullbacks, Heath Evans of the Seattle Seahawks and Fred Beasley of the San Francisco '49ers, talk it over on the sidelines.
A couple of the cornerstones of Auburn teams in the 1980s walk off the field together. Offensive guard Ed King (left) and defensive tackle Gerald Williams (right) both enjoyed extensive and successful NFL careers.
Two of the more colorful characters on the field Saturday were current Pittsburgh Steeler offensive tackle Wayne Gandy and former All-Pro offensive tackle Steve Wallace of San Francisco. Here Gandy laughs when Wallace points to him while showing off one of his four Super Bowl Championship rings.
