Auburn’s eagle crashes into goal post during pregame flight
Auburn has one of the most colorful pre-game traditions in all of college football but it didn’t go as smoothly as usual on Saturday night.
Auburn’s trained eagle Nova flew into the goal posts during its pre-game flight around the field before the Tigers’ game against Alabama A&M. The eagle finished its flight following the collision, landing safely at mid-field. According to a member of the veterinary staff, the eagle was examined following the incident and no injuries were found.
