Rod Bramblett, the “Voice of the Auburn Tigers,” and his wife Paula both passed away due to injuries suffered during a tragic two-car accident on Saturday night in Auburn.

Bramblett was airlifted to UAB Hospital in Birmingham where he later passed away.

Auburn Athletics released the following statement Saturday night:

Rod Bramblett, the Voice of the Auburn Tigers, and his wife, Paula, were involved in a serious car accident early Saturday evening in Auburn.

“We ask the Auburn Family to keep the Bramblett family in your thoughts and prayers.

Bramblett was famously known for his call during the 2013 Iron Ball or “The Kick Six.” His line, “Auburn’s going to win the football game,” is one of the most famous lines in modern college football.

The Big Blue Nation sends our thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of both Rod and Paula Bramblett.
