AUBURN, Ala. (WSFA) - The game time for Saturday’s basketball game between Auburn and Georgia has been moved up to 11 a.m. due to the threat of inclement weather in the area, the university announced.

Gametime was originally set for 5 p.m. but was changed “in consideration of the safety of students, student-athletes and fans.”

The school also announced that if a Tornado Watch is issued, Greene Hall at the College of Veterinary Medicine and the Draughon Library will open as shelters. University buildings also have a designated location for severe weather sheltering in the lower, interior portions of buildings marked with signage.

The Auburn Tigers will look to remain undefeated on the basketball court. They are currently 14-0 on the season.
