AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn fans are set for a final farewell to the beloved oak trees at Toomer's Corner.
Thousands of Tigers fans are expected to attend a rolling party at the intersection of campus and downtown Saturday after the Tigers' spring game.
The trees, poisoned two years ago by a fan of rival Alabama, will come down a few days later.
Rolling the two live oaks with toilet paper to celebrate big Auburn wins is a tradition going back more than four decades in a state that cherishes its college football.
Auburn is planning a seven-figure renovation of Toomer's Corner that will include the planting of more oaks.
Auburn coach Gus Malzahn will be among the speakers at an event memorializing what he calls ``one of the best traditions in college football.''
