The Chicago Cubs ended their 108-year championship drought on Wednesday, and the celebration extended far beyond the city of Chicago.
Cubs fans at Auburn decided to pay homage to their team with one of the most iconic winning traditions in college football. Early Thursday morning, fans rolled one of the trees at Toomer’s Corner to celebrate the Cubs’ win.

Auburn had a big reason to cheer for the Cubs. Former Tiger David Ross represented the school as a member of the Cubs in his final major league game. The 39-year-old finished his career in amazing fashion, becoming the oldest player to ever hit a home run in the World Series with a solo shot in the top of the sixth inning.
The Cubs beat the Indians 8-7 in extra innings in Game 7.
