Gearing Up for the BCS Championship

MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) The Auburn Tigers are Pasadena bound. They'll face the Florida State Seminoles January 6th in the BCS Championship. With the remarkable season, it's only natural the fan base is going a little crazy. They're talking about it, shopping for Auburn gear and many are making travel arrangements to California. Springdale Travel has been inundated with people wanting to book package deals to the BCS Championship.

"It's been nonstop," said group travel manager Debra Smith.

Smith began her day at 6 a.m. with a line at the door, 55 voicemails waiting to be heard and 147 emails in her inbox. Already, they've had to upgrade the size of the charter jet to keep up with the demand.

"We're just about full, and that's in a day," said Smith.

Around the corner at Academy, the store can't get Auburn gear shipped in fast enough. SEC Championship gear is set to arrive in the store Tuesday.

"It gets very crazy, hectic," said sales associate Raquel Ross, "Anything that has Auburn on it, they want it."

And at WNSP, Sports Drive with Mark and Randy was flooded with callers talking about the Tigers.

"Clearly the phones were ringing off the hook and we expect they will for the next month or so," said host Mark Heim, "Call it luck, call it a miracle whatever, but clearly, Auburn is the hottest team in the country right now."
