The Auburn Tigers survived a shootout with heated rival Alabama on Saturday night, coming away with a massive 48-45 victory in the highest scoring Iron Bowl ever.
Alabama kicker Joseph Bulovas had an opportunity to tie the game with two minutes to go, but he shanked a 30-yard field goal attempt that bounced off the left upright and all but sealed a defeat for the Crimson Tide.
The Tigers took a knee as the clock winded down and Jordan-Hare went into a frenzy.

Fans stormed the field, or at least tried to. Two Auburn fans were soon spotted stuck in the bush surrounding the field as they struggled to get through to the celebration.
Gotta do whatever it takes 😅

As always, social media had some fun with the moment.
It was then that I carried you.

You could possibly make an argument for this being among the top sports memes of 2019, although it faces some stiff competition in that area.
As far as the game goes, this most likely knocks Alabama out of the College Football Playoff hunt, but how far should Auburn be moved up?
We’ll soon find out.
