While not the starting QB, Kodi Burns has helped Auburn reach the BCS title game.

Auburn fans who couldn't make the big game in Arizona, shared in the excitement with fellow “Tiger" fans at several establishments in Dothan.

The colors of orange and navy blue seem to be everywhere you turned in Dothan Monday night.

In preparation for the BCS Championship game, Carmike theatre and Plan B Sports Pub and Grill, transformed their venues to football watching headquarters.

“We brought an Auburn tradition right here to Dothan, Alabama our very own Toomer's Corner," said Jim Flowers with Plan B Sports Pub & Grill.

The Toomer’s Corner is decorated with toilet paper whenever Auburn wins a ball game, and since these fans already decorated the booths, they're looking for a win.

But Tiger fans weren't the only ones on the prowl, the Oregon Ducks fans proudly sported their yellow and green.

"We travelled a long way to Lower Alabama. We just want to come out and show our support to the winning team. And who is that going to be? That's the Ducks? said Ian Shaffer.

Carmike Theatre opened their doors to watch the game on the big screen.

For many, this game is bigger than football.

“It's a once in a lifetime chance and Auburn may not do it again, but it's good to be here at least once and see them in here," said Jacob Hawkins.

If Auburn wins Monday, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Hibbett Sports will stay open until midnight, selling championship t-shirts.
