AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn will hold a celebration for the
Tigers' national championship Jan. 22 at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
The event will last about an hour. Admission is free, and
students will be allowed to stand on the field.
The Tigers will cap it with a reverse Tiger Walk from the
stadium toward the athletic complex.
A limited number of national championship posters will be handed
out free as fans exit the stadium.
Auburn secured its first national championship since 1957 Monday
night with a 22-19 win over Oregon.
