Glendale, Ariz., to see Auburn play in the national championship
Press secretary Todd Stacy said the governor didn't want to leave Alabama while it is in a state of emergency.
Riley declared the state of emergency Sunday due to the snow and ice storm.

They are headed to Birmingham Monday afternoon to see conditions in Alabama's most populous city. Then Riley plans to return to
Montgomery to watch the Auburn-Oregon game on TV.
