After the Tigers lost their first game in the College World Series to Ole Miss, the Auburn family has been on edge. This victory has the Auburn fans riding high and they’re embracing the moment.

“It was awesome. We were here last year you know rooting them on. We were here in 2020 when that season just ended so abruptly so we’re just excited to have them have a great opportunity. You know this is typical of an Auburn fan in general. So, we ride the roller coaster. We’re just glad to be part of the ride,” said Auburn fan Gina Webb.

Auburn will take the field again on Tuesday, June 21st.
