AUBURN, Ala. (AP) -Auburn plans to review its security procedures during football games after cornerback Jerraud Powers was bitten by a police dog late in the Alabama game.
Powers was celebrating a pass break-up in the end zone when the dog bit him on the hand in the fourth quarter, a scene that has received more airtime on TV and the Internet than any other play in the game.
``We certainly will review it and consider making some adjustments after that incident,'' said associate athletic director Jeff Steele, who supervises event operations.
The dog was restrained by an officer just off the playing field when it lunged at Powers and snapped at his gloved hand. Powers remained in the game, but had several noticeable bite marks on his hand and pinkie finger.
He did not have to get a rabies shot.
Several police dogs are present at every home game.
``I doubt we would entirely eliminate (the dogs),'' Steele said. ``It's part of our crowd-management program to discourage rushing the field.''
The dog and officer involved in the incident were from the Opelika police, Steele said.
Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville said Sunday he had never noticed the dogs, ``but obviously it's something we'll have to look at and make sure it doesn't happen again.''
