  • No. 6 Auburn rips Louisiana-Monroe 42-14; No. 1 Tide nextNo. 6 Auburn rips Louisiana-Monroe 42-14; No. 1 Tide next

    AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Auburn players could be forgiven for looking ahead to next week’s visit from No. 1 Alabama. Forgiveness came easy after the Tigers made a strong recovery from their sluggish start against Louisiana-Monroe. Darius Slayton’s 50-yard scoring catch late in the first half gave No. 6 Auburn the lead and the Tigers pulled away for a 42-14 win over ULM on Saturday to set up next week’s showdown with the Crimson Tide. Auburn (9-2, 6-0, No. 6 CFP) can earn a spot in the Southeastern Conference championship game by beating Alabama in a rivalry in which it’s rare for conference and national implications to mean more than state bragging rights. “It’s what college football is all about and what we came to Auburn for,” H-back Chandler Cox said. Last week’s win over then-No. 2 Georgia , which was the No. 1 CFP team, makes the visit from Alabama even bigger than most Iron Bowl games. Kam Martin scored two touchdowns, one rushing and one receiving, in the third quarter. Nick Ruffin scored on a 45-yard interception return in the fourth. Despite a sluggish first half, Auburn’s final production was still impressive: 317 yards rushing and 552 total yards. Auburn also will be playing to protect its hopes for a spot in the playoff, a possibility that seemed unlikely after a loss to Louisiana State on Oct. 14 left the Tigers 5-2. “I am excited,” quarterback Jarrett Stidham said. “This is why you play here at Auburn, for games like this against a team like Alabama.” The Tigers were tied at 7 with ULM (4-6, 2-4 Sun Belt Conference) late in the first half. It was unusual even in a game where the emphasis was on guarding against a letdown . “I think it was odd,” coach Gus Malzahn said. “We didn’t have that edge that we have.” Malzahn was happy with the way his players responded in the second half. “Even though we didn’t start out real fast, we came out after halftime and took care of business,” Malzahn said. ULM coach Matt Viator said he was proud of his team’s play in the first half. “I think we competed hard and made some plays on defense,” Viator said. “We just could never get a whole lot going on offense the whole game. We turned it over in the second half. Give them credit, they’re really good. They are hard to move the ball against.” Auburn took the lead on Slayton’s bomb from Stidham with 1:27 remaining in the half. Auburn pulled away in the third quarter. Stidham added a 41-yard touchdown pass to Martin, who also scored on a 1-yard run. Cornerback Javaris Davis had an interception and a forced fumble in a span of about two minutes late in the third quarter to help Auburn take control. The Warhawks opened with a 13-play touchdown drive. Wide receiver Brian Williams scored on an end-around run on fourth down. Williams scored again on a 70-yard pass from Garrett Smith with less than 6 minutes remaining. Malik Miller had a 1-yard touchdown run for Auburn. THE TAKEAWAY ULM: The Warhawks frustrated Auburn most of the first half but struggled to move the ball after their impressive opening drive. Caleb Evans completed only 9 of 25 passes for 86 yards and had 10 carries for 34 yards before ULM turned to Smith, the backup, in the second half. ULM said Evans was not injured. Auburn: With an eye on next week’s visit from Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts, the Tigers’ defense should benefit from the challenge posed by ULM dual-threat quarterback Evans. Malzahn should be encouraged by his team outscoring the Warhawks 35-7 after the 7-7 tie. Willis had a 62-yard run after taking over for Stidham late in the game. Martin had 12 carries for 83 yards. CARRYING ON Kerryon Johnson, the SEC’s leading rusher, ran for 137 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries. He had six carries for 37 yards, including an 8-yard touchdown run, on Auburn’s opening drive. SUPER BOWL ULM had an extra week to prepare for Auburn following its 52-45 win over Appalachian State on Nov. 4. “They were playing like it was their Super Bowl,” Martin said of the Warhawks. “They had two weeks to prepare for us. We just had to calm down and run the ball like we do.” UP NEXT ULM: Hosts Arkansas State on Saturday. Auburn: Hosts No. 1 Alabama on Saturday to determine SEC Western Division champion. ___ More AP college football: http://www.collegefootball.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_Top25

At approximately 10:20 p.m., the Sheriff’s Office received a call that a man had been shot outside of a residence on Bradford Street in Hobson City. Deputies arrived to discover a deceased man with a gunshot wound to the torso. Sheriff’s Investigators were able to gather that the victim and suspect began arguing at a party. That argument then turned into a shooting. Lucas’s bond and court date are pending. The name of the victim is being held until the coroner has notified all of the family.

  • Local group recreates habitat of birds by building towers downtownLocal group recreates habitat of birds by building towers downtown

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — If you are driving near Jones Valley Teaching Farm in downtown Birmingham, you may see a makeshift chimney on the side of the road. It’s part of an effort by one local group to save the habitat of an urban bird called the chimney swift. Chimney swifts help control pesky insects like mosquitos. These birds look like ‘flying cigars’, almost like bats. They aren’t able to perch on things like most birds, so swifts spend almost all of their lifespan in flight. They spend nights roosting on vertical walls, like those inside of a chimney. Andy Coleman is the Program and Science Director for Birmingham Audubon. She says the birds make stops here during their migration. “During the fall, we have those that spent their summers north of here, migrate through,” Coleman said. “And they migrate in large numbers, and at night they will roost together – upwards to hundreds of thousands of chimney swifts using one chimney to roost in for the night.” With redevelopment and renovations of urban areas, chimneys are harder to come by. That’s why the group Birmingham Audubon is raising money to recreate the habitat. They are raising money to put up towers around the city. Each tower costs around $700.

  • Central Alabama ForecastCentral Alabama Forecast

      A shot of cold air is ready to invade Central Alabama, but before it does, a cold front sweeps through with rain chances through Saturday evening. We’ll watch a line of showers with a few rumbles of thunder possible from around 6pm until 11pm or so. The line of rain will be thin, but there’s a good chance most of us will see at least some rain out of this. As the line moves east, colder air will spill in behind it, with some strong winds ahead and behind the line. Look for gusty winds, around 25-30 mph for most of Saturday afternoon and into the evening. After all this, the cold air arrives for Sunday. We’ll wake up Sunday morning to temps in the low and middle 40s. The afternoon will be mostly sunny with highs only in the low and mid 50s. Not much changes as we start Thanksgiving Week on Monday. We will have a light freeze in most spots with temperatures in the upper 20s and near 30 in the morning. Highs will rise to the mid and upper 50s with plenty of sun during the afternoon. A few more clouds and slightly milder temps are ahead for Tuesday before another shot of cooler air moves in for the rest of the week. Thanksgiving on Thursday will definitely feel seasonable with temperatures starting in the mid 30s with highs in the mid 50s. Enjoy the day with your family and stay warm!! If you are going out late on Thursday or early on Friday to take advantage of those big sales, bundle up..we’re expecting another chilly morning on Friday!
