AUBURN, Ala. (WHNT) – Preparations for the BCS Championship took an unexpected turn over the weekend in Auburn. Tiger fans did not seem to be the only ones getting ready for the game.

It appears Florida State University fans tagged several buildings on the Auburn University campus. The tags were simply “FSU” spray painted on bricks, concrete and even glass windows.

According to our partners at The Huntsville Times/AL.com, Auburn police say Foy Hall and Davis Hall were both targets. Teague Hall was hit several different places with the spray paint, and the stairs in front of the Shelby Center were painted as well. Police say they found these multicolored tags Sunday morning.

Auburn Police have not identified any suspects, and no arrests have been made.

The Tigers are no freshman to vandals. Harvey Updyke pleaded guilty last year to poisoning the Toomer’s Oaks, a time honored tradition. The Alabama fan took to the trees in 2010. That season was the last time the Auburn Tigers made it to the BCS Championship.

We want to know what you think. Do vandals target Auburn in particular, or does this go with the territory for college football teams? Why? Share your comments on our Facebook page. We’ll share what you said in the News Pulse at 9.
