CBS’s shots of really sad Auburn fans following their stunning loss to Alabama sparked a slew of jokes.
Alabama won the latest Iron Bowl in spectacular manner on Saturday, defeating Auburn with a game-winning touchdown pass of 31 yards on a fourth-and-goal play in the last minute.
That play, which will be shown whenever this passionate rivalry is discussed, had Alabama fans losing their minds in a good way and Auburn fans feeling all the emotions in a bad way.

VERY DISAPPOINTING: Auburn confirmed the departure of key player
Auburn football transfer tracker: Who is departing the Tigers through the portal?
AUBURN — The transfer portal for undergraduates does not technically open until December 4, but nothing prevents players from stating their plan to go sooner.
This offseason, Auburn football will see roster turnover. That is not unique to the Tigers; almost every team in the country will see players leave. Here is a list of Auburn athletes that have revealed their future plans.
This story will be updated as fresh information becomes available during the offseason.
Enyce Sledge became the first Tiger to make a declaration about the portal on Nov. 27, when he posted on social media that he will be moving from the Plains with three years of eligibility remaining. Sledge, a former three-star recruit in the Class of 2022, made his debut for the Tigers as a freshman last season against Western Kentucky. He appeared in two games in 2022, against UMass on September 2 and Samford on September 16.
THE LOSS: Auburn football coach Hugh Freeze explains why his team rushed two guys on fourth-and-31 in the Iron Bowl.
DEFENDING HIS PLAYERS: Auburn football coach Hugh Freeze says people who trash his players “need to get a life.”
Stephen Johnson, a freshman defensive lineman, revealed his intention to enter the portal on November 28: “Thank you Auburn for the opportunity,” he said on Twitter. “Many thanks for the wonderful experience!” Auburn will always be near and dear to my heart. With four years of eligibility, I’ll be approaching the transfer portal! God has a plan for my life.”
