The Auburn Crimson Tide.
Yeah, that wasn’t going to go over well.
You’ve got to love the “What?!” as the viewer watches in utter dismay. That sentiment also succinctly sums up the social media reaction.

This has to be an elaborate troll right?

Auburn hosts Alabama in this season’s edition of the Iron Bowl on Nov. 25, with the Crimson Tide riding a three-game winning streak over the Tigers.
