MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama legislators are joining in the celebration over Auburn University's national football championship.
The House and Senate have passed a resolution saying Auburn's "singular achievement" reflects honor on the entire state and that coach Gene Chizik is an exceptional leader and role model. The resolution was sponsored by Republican Sen. Tom Whatley, who has Auburn University in his district.
Auburn used a last-minute field goal to defeat Oregon Monday night in Glendale, Ariz., and cap a perfect season.
