Earth-shaking win: Auburn fans most likely caused seismic activity after Alabama win

Jordan-Hare Stadium has a reputation for being one of the loudest venues in college football, but when the Tigers beat rival Alabama, it can reach peak level.

That is what happened on Saturday night, and per a report by AL.com, the noise from the crowd once the 26-14 Auburn victory ended was so big that it most likely caused some seismic activity.

Yes, you read that right. Auburn fans probably caused a little bit of an earthquake.

Steve Jones, an engineer who lived approximately 90 miles away from the stadium and uses a seismometer to detect activity, noticed that the noise from the ground grew when the game wrapped up.

“I saw a slight increase in ground noise on the seismograph starting a few minutes before 6:00 pm when the game ended, until about 6:15 pm or so.”

Now that is what I call a major celebration.
