Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said he planned on wearing a bracelet in honor of Lutzenkirchen, who he helped recruit and coach in college.

"I'm sure the there will be some players that will honor him in their own way," Malzahn said in the SEC Teleconference call on Wednesday.

Lutzenkirchen caught the game-winning touchdown in Auburn's come-from-behind win over Alabama in the 2010 Iron Bowl.

Langner returned two blocked punts for touchdowns against Alabama in the famed "Punt, Bama, Punt" game in 1972.
