Alabama, Auburn fans boost state economy
BIRMINGHAM - AL —
Some Alabama and Auburn fans might give the state economy a boost, this weekend.
Saturday, hundreds of people packed stores across the state buying Alabama and Auburn gear.
In the Riverchase Galleria Mall, Bama Fever and Auburn Spirit was packed with fans right before kickoff.
"I have a brand new granddaughter who is in a house divided," Auburn fan, Lauren Bertram, said. "And, I'm really pushing the blue and orange, hoping that I can persuade her as she grows to be a Tiger fan."
"I have my shirt on, my jewelry, my boots," Alabama fan, Tomeka Mills, said. "Alabama, all the way."
