What can happen in a second?

“I couldn't believe it. I'm like everybody else. You just can't believe that a play like that happened,” said Crimson Tide fan, Wanda Smith.

In that second, the Crimson Tide was shut down; handed their first loss of the season, leaving fans across the state and the country stunned.

But police say some are taking the game too seriously. A Tide fan in Birmingham allegedly killed a fellow Alabama fan after the game. Police say Adrian Laroze Briskey shot and killed the woman because she wasn't upset enough about the loss.

"Good gosh it's only a game. I mean, that's what it is and it's certainly not something to murder somebody about or to lose a friend over," said Wade Baxley an Alabama fan.

Alabama kicker, Cade Foster also received hundreds of death threats on Twitter.

"You can say what you want to. We beat auburn some games in the past that we probably shouldn't have won. They beat us in games that they shouldn't have won. And I think this one was one of them. But there's always next year," Baxley said.

Alabama fans will, without a doubt, be hoping for pay back next year... In the meantime police remind everyone that in the end it's just a game.
