Auburn Fans Celebrate Prematurely As Team Lose Huge Game In Dramatic Finish

Virginia Cavaliers will face Texas Tech in US college basketball's championship game after a dramatic win against Auburn Tigers on Saturday night.

Virginia beat Auburn 63-62 via three free throws with just 0.6 of a second remaining on the clock. Those free throws came after Kyle Guy was fouled by Samir Doughty in the corner as he attempted to make the game-winning shot.

Believing they had won the game and not knowing that a foul had been called on the play, some Auburn fans burst in celebrations.

Those included this fan who poured his beer over his head.

The game was played at the US Bank Stadium in Minnesota. Back in Alabama, Auburn fans who did not realise that the game was not over rushed outside to throw toilet rolls over trees at the city's Toomer Corner.

While Auburn fans were amid their premature celebrations, Guy made the three free throws to win the game.
