AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn fans are keeping a cherished tradition alive - at least for now.
Hundreds streamed to Toomer's Corner following the 23rd-ranked Tigers' 42-38, comeback win over Utah State on Saturday. They celebrated like always by heaving toilet paper into the branches of the two poisoned, ailing oak trees at the intersection of campus and downtown.
Fans like 23-year-old Auburn graduate Emily Curry wonder how long they'll get the chance. Curry says it "makes me really sad that this might be the last time."
With leaves mottled brown and yellow, the frail-looking trees are getting special treatment from the university, town and fan base in hopes that they'll pull through.
Alabama fan Harvey Updyke Jr. is awaiting trial on charges that he poisoned the trees.
