BCS trophy goes on tour
The Auburn Tigers will celebrate their BCS national championship win over the Oregon Ducks by having their trophy displayed at select Walmart stores. The crystal football known as the coaches’ trophy will be on display today at a Walmart store in Montgomery, Ala., then tomorrow at a Walmart in Columbus, Ga., and then finally Sunday at a store in the school’s hometown of Auburn, Ala.
The tour, sponsored by Dr. Pepper, gives fans the opportunity to view the trophy and even have their picture taken with it.
This is the second year Dr. Pepper has sponsored this type of tour. Last year the Alabama Crimson Tide celebrated its championship win at Walmart stores in its area.
