Following Auburn’s epic win over first-ranked Alabama, workers cleaning the field at Jordan-Hare Stadium found an unexpected surprise.
The workers came across cremated remains near the 40-yard line. School officials are not certain whether the remains are human or not, but they did confirm bone fragments to be within the ashes. Auburn associate professor for turfgrass and weed science Scott McElroy says that releasing remains at a stadium like Jordan-Hare is not that uncommon.
