WATCH: Auburn's band reacts to game-winning Iron Bowl play

acarlson@ledger-enquirer.comJanuary 23, 2014 

Everyone remembers the end of last year's Iron Bowl. Here's what you didn't see: Auburn's student band — losing its mind.

In a new video released on Auburn's official Facebook page, we see a camera has been trained on the student musicians, who watch as Chris Davis returns Alabama's kick for more than 100 yards, a game-winning touchdown and what almost everyone watching called some variation of "miraculous."

The rest, as they say, is blah blah blah.

But Auburn's band tells a different story: shock, awe, excited hugging and, after a few seconds, professionalism, as they raise their instruments and triumphantly begin to play. (Extra applause for the drum major — and the tubas; the guy in the camera's forefront, the one who appears to start crying at 0:35, probably needed another hug.)
