War Eagle Tiger at Auburn University

Hans and I enjoyed seeing the War Eagle Tiger statue at Auburn University today on our walk. 

Auburn's only nickname is the Tigers. We're the Auburn Tigers. Auburn has been known as the Tigers since the university first fielded a football team in 1892 to play the Georgia Bulldogs in Atlanta.

The official mascot of Auburn is Aubie the Tiger, and all Auburn athletics teams (men's and women's) are nicknamed the Tigers. The nickname "Tigers" comes from a line in Oliver Goldsmith's poem, "The Deserted Village," published in May 1770, "where crouching tigers await their hapless prey..."

“War Eagle” is Auburn's battle cry. Auburn has never referred to any of its teams as “Eagles” or “War Eagles.” To the Auburn Family, it's very simple. We are the Tigers who yell “War Eagle!”
