Auburn's Jordan-Hare Stadium suffers $25k in damage after Iron Bowl win

Posted: Updated:

The Auburn Tigers victory over the Alabama Crimson Tide in the 2013 Iron Bowl brought out a lot of celebrations, and also a lot of damage.

Maintenance crews at Jordan-Hare Stadium spent Monday cleaning up, after the big game Saturday night.

Crews were busy fixing sod repairs in the turf, and also clipping off damaged branches in the hedges around the field.

One of the play clocks was also damaged, and must be repaired.

The Iron Bowl ended on a Alabama missed field goal that Auburn's Chris Davis returned 109 yards for a touchdown with time expiring. Fans rushed the field immediately after the play. 

Workers estimate the damage will cost $25,000 to repair, but they say they'll gladly do the repairs, for having the big win this year was worth it.
