NEW ORLEANS, LA (WSFA) -

Former Crimson Tide football star and current NFL Saints running back Mark Ingram has caused a stir on social media after having his picture taken wearing the clothing of college arch rival Auburn.

The New Orleans Saints posted a photo of Ingram Thursday morning on its official Twitter account http://Twitter.com/Saints explaining that there is "Nothing to see here Alabama fans. Keep scrolling down your timeline :)"

The photo isn't photoshopped. It's the result of a lost bet with two of Ingram's teammates, Ben Grubbs and Will Herring. Both played for Auburn.

A few minutes later, Ingram, also tweeted out a photo http://Twitter.com/MarkIngram22 from the lock room still wearing AU's signature orange and blue colors with "Auburn" emblazoned across the chest.

For any thinking Alabama's only Heisman trophy winner has somehow changed allegiances following the Tigers' historic Iron Bowl win, Ingram is setting them straight.

"I'm still roll tide all day!!! Don't get it twisted!!!" Ingram tweeted in his photo, this time making sure he was wearing a Crimson Tide hat. He hashtagged the photo "#15natties" in reference to Alabama's 15 national championships.
