Auburn fans rock Toomer's Corner

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Auburn fans, full from Thanksgiving dinner and full of Tiger spirit.

"We're having a great time and its a great day to be in Auburn, Alabama," says Pattie Sprayberry.

"We had dinner together and have been thinking about the game and what its going to be like tomorrow," adds Sandra Palmer.

Its a family tradition for the Kennedy's. They set up for tailgating first thing Thursday morning.

"Every year for the past 55 years, my family has come to the game no matter who they were playing. My parents are 85 and still avid Auburn fans. They came to have dinner with us early on the grounds," says Steve Kennedy.

"I love the shopping here in Auburn. The family decided to come down and take a stroll to spend some of dad's money," added another family member.

"We are so excited. My family actually lives in North Carolina now, but we just found out we're moving back to Auburn, so its a great way to celebrate," says 1991 Auburn graduate, Wendy McDougal.

And for Emeline Fagen--its a flashback. She was an Auburn Tiger cheerleader in 1948.

"You better believe it. There are no people on earth like Auburn Tigers and we're going win tomorrow," she says.
