Auburn fans made an exception to their tradition of rolling Toomer's Corner after victories.
They celebrated rival Alabama's 35-31 loss to Clemson in Monday night's national championship game. The Crimson Tide was seeking its second straight title and fifth in eight years, unprecedented in the poll era.
Traditionally, Auburn fans had rolled the iconic oak trees at the intersection of campus and downtown. But the trees were poisoned by Alabama fan Harvey Updyke after the 2010 Iron Bowl.
A German man pleaded guilty last week to setting fire to an oak tree that replaced them.
Tigers fans have suffered through Alabama's run of success while their own program was up and down, though Auburn won the 2010 national title and was runner-up in 2013.
