The Auburn football team squandered a 10-point lead and ultimately fell in four overtimes to No. 2 Alabama on Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
The Crimson Tide defeated the Tigers 24-22.
What could have been an upset for the history books ended in agony for Auburn fans, who took to social media to share their frustrations.
