It’s Pronounced JORDAN: Black History

The first Auburn touchdown (a kick-off return) scored by a black player, James Owens, against Florida in Gainesville, Halloween, 1970. Owens integrated the Auburn football team in 1969, but, per rules then established for freshmen, did not compete with the varsity until the 1970 season.

Auburn won this game 63-14, seriously.
