Perhaps the most thrilling game of college football Week 1 was Auburn’s comeback win over Oregon on Saturday night. First-year starter Bo Nix led the Tigers to a 15-point comeback win over the Ducks with only nine seconds left on the clock.
In the aftermath, plenty of incredible reactions have poured in. But Auburn legend Cam Newton may have had the best reaction of all.
Taking to Instagram during the game, Newton couldn’t help but giggle and screech in excitement over the incredible finish.
“Oh how sweet it is! Bo Nix baby!”
“They sick! They sick! Papa Bo! Papa Nix! Y’all sick!”
“I told y’all Bo was the Truth!”

Newton’s laugh alone can definitely give Kawhi Leonard a run for his money.
The Tigers trailed Auburn by 15 points in the middle of the third quarter when Nix and the Tigers turned up the offense. They scored 21 unanswered points, capped off by a 26-yard strike from Nix to Seth Williams for the game-winner.
Of course, Cam Newton had his own memorable game against Oregon. In the 2011 BCS National Championship Game, Newton had 265 yards and two touchdowns as he led the Tigers to a national title win over the Ducks.
Could Auburn’s big win over Oregon be a precursor to another historic season for the Tigers?
