Auburn is headed to the College World Series for the first time since 1997.
The country was much different in 1997. Minimum wage was $5.50 per hour; “Titanic” ruled the big screen and Tim Hudson and David Ross highlighted the Auburn Tigers baseball team’s roster.
To celebrate the Tigers’ trip back to Omaha in more than 20 years, many Auburn fans took to social media to voice their support and excitement.
Here are some of their tweets:
