Auburn University’s campus is typically filled with students, visitors, and fans. After an Auburn Athletics win, you can expect to see one of two sights at Toomer’s Corner, the intersection between Auburn’s campus and downtown Auburn. The area will either be mostly empty with the exception of a few sad stragglers that are walking back home and to their cars in defeat or it will be filled, shoulder-to-shoulder, with tens of thousands of fans crowding around and tossing toilet paper at the signature Auburn Oaks.
Rolling Toomer’s Corner is one of the long-standing rituals the Auburn Family experiences. This tradition is one that many Auburn fans hold near and dear to their hearts, but few truly know how it got its start as the method for validating an Auburn win.
