Heavy rainfalls and the possibility of thunderstorms forced the Auburn football team indoors Monday morning.
The team had the second of three Birmingham Bowl practice sessions at Hoover High School moved to Sports Blast Birmingham, a 44,000 square foot entertainment complex south of the city that features two artificial turf fields.
Auburn’s opponent for the game Memphis moved its practice an hour earlier to avoid the worst of the weather.
The team practiced in the rain at Birmingham Southern College, but was done by the time a flash flood warning was issued for the area.
Never miss a local story.
Auburn’s venue change prompted it to cancel the open viewing session for the media and its scheduled post-practice media availability with coach Gus Malzahn and players.
Both teams are participating in a pregame press conference at Legion Field Tuesday.
