Auburn football's play-by-play announcer Rod Bramblett had himself a great year, notching perhaps the most memorable call of the decade when he shouted, "They’re not gonna keep ‘em off the field tonight!" following the Tigers improbable victory over Alabama in the Iron Bowl. But Monday night belonged to Florida State, who has a fantastic radio crew of their own comprised of Gene Deckerhoff and former Florida State fullback William Floyd.
