PASADENA, Ca. – One week from today the Auburn Tigers will take on Florida State for the BCS National Championship.

Auburn fans are certainly hoping for a victory, but if they do win, BCS officials have a request.

Unlike what happens on campus after a victory, BCS officials request that Auburn fans not roll the palm trees outside of the Rose Bowl with toilet paper.

The Auburn Family Twitter account (@AUFAMILY) posed the question to Rose Bowl officials, who responded with a very straight forward answer: “Please do not attempt to roll the palm trees. PPD will take action if necessary.”

WHNT News 19 will bring you extensive coverage of the BCS National Championship starting Monday, December 30 at 6:00 p.m. Our crew heads to Pasadena on Wednesday.

    That’s reasonable, Auburn fans should realize they are not in Alabama anymore, and they should respect their rules.
