AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn University students will have to find somewhere other than campus to watch the Tigers play in the championship bowl game Monday.
The university has canceled all viewing parties and other events planned as the state prepares for severe winter weather starting Sunday night. And the college is asking all students who have not returned to campus for the start of the semester to stay home until the roads are clear, though dorms will stay open for students already on campus.
The No. 1 ranked Auburn is playing the No. 2 Oregon in the BCS championship game Monday night.
Alabama is gripping for a blast of wintry weather with snow, freezing rain and sleet predicted starting Sunday night.
