Auburn legend David Langner died Saturday of cancer.

Langner entered college football and Auburn lore during the 1972 Iron Bowl when he returned two blocked punts for touchdowns in the fourth quarter to lead the Tigers to a 17-16 comeback win over hated Alabama. As if the two touchdowns weren't enough, Langner also picked off a pass to end the game and seal the win.

"David Langner was one of Auburn's greats who will be remembered by generations to come," said Auburn athletic director Jay Jacobs in a statement. "He was a fierce competitor who fought cancer as hard as he fought any opponent he faced. I know the entire Auburn family joins me in offering our sympathy and prayers to his family."
