AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - The city of Auburn has come up with a temporary replacement for the poisoned oak trees at Toomer's Corner.
Workers have installed a series of wires above the intersection where fans used to gather to roll the massive oaks with toilet paper after a victory.
This year, fans will be able to throw toilet paper over the wires to carry on the tradition.
Assistant city manager Kevin Cowper tells the Opelika-Auburn News (http://bit.ly/1bbKTrL ) the rolling tradition originally began with fans throwing toilet paper over traffic signal wires, so the city is going back to the root of the tradition.
Workers cut down the trees earlier this year. They died after being poisoned by University of Alabama fan Harvey Updyke, who went to jail for the act.
