‘Come back, come back!’ Auburn’s eagle nearly flies the coop in epic pre-game flight

Some Auburn fans were leaving by the end of the first quarter during Saturday night’s slaughter in Jordan-Hare. The eagle almost left even earlier.

In her traditional pre-game flight, Spirit appeared to actually fly behind the Jumbotron and out of the stadium. In the below video shouts of “Go, baby, go” are immediately followed by “come back, come back!”

It was one of the glorious bird’s longest flights in recent memory, and the most dramatic since that greasy rendezvous with a skybox window in 2011 that terrified small children.
