March Madness has arrived. It's getting intense.

Even the cheerleaders are getting into it, apparently.

This evening, No. 4 seed Auburn is set to take on No. 13 seed College of Charleston. The Tigers are a sizable favorite, but this is a popular upset pick, too.

(ESPN's Dick Vitale, among others, is picking the No. 13 seed.)

Prior to tipoff, a couple of cheerleaders apparently had a bit of an altercation in the bathroom. It was apparently one-sided.

Clemson beat reporter Grace Raynor captured the scene:

"Overseen in the women's restroom: 2 very nice, excited (College of Charleston) cheerleaders say hi to an Auburn cheerleader. Auburn cheerleader gives the cold shoulder, walks straight by. It's on," she tweeted.

You have to love that.

Auburn sent a small cheerleading crew to San Diego, where tonight's game is being played.

Auburn and College of Charleston are tipping off on truTV. Hopefully the game as intense as the cheerleaders.
