Contrary to popular belief, there is something on this planet that transcends the Iron Bowl rivalry: AJ McCarron and Tre Mason’s friendship. The two have reportedly struck up a camaraderie that even has them rooting for each others’ teams.
Tre Mason says he struck up a friendship with AJ McCarron and now he roots for Bama and AJ will for Auburn.

Mason helped lead Auburn to a shocking victory over Alabama, derailing the Tide’s national championship aspirations. On the back of his 164-yard day, Mason propelled his team to an SEC Championship and eventually the BCS National Championship Game. Despite sending McCarron out on a sour note in his final regular season contest, it appears that the star Alabama QB will be pulling for Mason in the national title game.
Now if only we could get Mason to drop a “Roll Tide!” and McCarron a “War Eagle” during each others’ respective bowl games.
