With one of the most exciting college football games we have ever seen still fresh in our minds, Auburn Tigers fans are continuing to celebrate their big win over the rival Alabama Crimson Tide in the 2013 Iron Bowl.

There have been plenty of reaction videos sent out and some t-shirts and signs to celebrate the win, but nothing is as great as a a group of soldiers in Kabul, Afghanistan who took the time to celebrate their team’s win after enjoying the game overseas.

The soldiers from Task Force Tarpon PAO, 226th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade, celebrated the win by creating their own Toomer’s Corner in Afghanistan and continuing the tradition of rolling the trees.

Staff Sgt. Sandra D. Lucas sent us photos from the rolling and it is something that you will certainly want to see.

While the brave men and women in the armed forces are out defending our freedom, we often take the little things like getting to watch a football game for granted. However, for those who are serving, the games can mean much more as it brings them a little taste from home.

Check out the photos of the soldiers carrying on the rolling the tradition overseas and enjoying the big win that we were all able to witness:
