Any Alabama Crimson Tide or Auburn Tigers fan who watched Tuesday night's episode of Jeopardy! likely had to keep themselves from throwing up after one of the contestants had a cringe-worthy response to a clue.

In the first round, contestant Terry buzzed in on the $200 clue (aka the easiest of the category), which was looking for the name of the school that is home to the "Crimson Tide." Pretty easy, right?

Apparently not.

Terry answered with "Auburn," Alabama's biggest rival. The Auburn Crimson Tide. How many Alabama and Auburn fans threw something at their televisions when they heard that response? At least Terry didn't throw in a "Roll Eagle!"

Fortunately, Steve came to the rescue, making sure someone gave the right answer.
