Alabama (10-0) and Auburn (8-2) are on a collusion course to meet in the 2017 Iron Bowl later this month, in a game that could have some serious implications on the College Football Playoff.
The rivalry is always heated as the fan bases are almost always trash talking each other from the start of the season up until the two teams meet in November.
Unfortunately, a recent argument between a ‘Bama and Auburn fan almost cost someone their life.
According to WKRG News 5 in Mobile, Alabama:
Mobile Police say an argument over college football led an Alabama fan to shoot an Auburn fan outside a motel in Mobile on Monday.
In an update sent to News 5, police say the two men were arguing outside the Extenda Suites Mobile location on the I-65 Service Road South around 7:23pm. The argument was over which team was better in the Iron Bowl rivalry, Alabama or Auburn.
The argument escalated, with the Alabama fan pulling out a firearm and shooting the Auburn fan in the thigh. The Alabama fan fled on foot, and as of Wednesday afternoon, is still on the loose.
The victim’s condition is still unknown at this time.
Hopefully the Tigers fan is okay.
