MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The hype of the Auburn tigers' SEC Championship win hasn't died down and one Auburn fan is celebrating the big win in a unique way.

In Fayetteville, GA, Robert Burton created a Christmas light show synced to Auburn radio announcer Rod Bramlett calling the last second of this year's Iron Bowl and "War Eagle" -- the tigers' fight song.

Though Georgia fans in the area may not be happy about Burton's War Eagle display, it doesn't stop him from showing his pride.

"I had been thinking about using "War Eagle" in my display for quite some time and after hearing Rod's audio from the final play, I knew that I had to use that in the show," Burton said.

As an Alabama native, Burton knows all too well about the rivalry between Alabama and Auburn.

"I grew up in Gadsden, AL, so I know it's either Auburn or Alabama," Burton said.

Burton is a middle school band director and with Auburn's SEC win, he says it a lot of fun to torture the Alabama and Georgia fans in his band this year.
