Former Auburn quarterback Cam Newton is back on The Plains to serve as the honorary coach for Auburn’s matchup with Alabama in the Iron Bowl on Saturday. Many fans were excited for Newton to lead Auburn during the Tiger Walk, but one fan’s question upset the Heisman Trophy winner.

Newton was visibly frustrated by the comment, but he was upbeat and danced during pregame warmups inside Jordan-Hare Stadium. Newton also interacted with the student section prior to the game.
The Iron Bowl rivalry is already heating up before the first snap of the game.
