Alabama warning fans of fake tickets at Iron Bowl

— TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Authorities are warning football fans to be on the lookout for fake tickets for Saturday's Alabama-Auburn game in Tuscaloosa.

The Iron Bowl is a sellout, but tickets are still for on sale on websites including Craigslist.

Many are priced in the hundreds of dollars, and brokers say some of those tickets could be frauds.

University of Alabama officials say that anyone trying to get into the game with a fake ticket could be investigated, and no one will get into Bryant-Denny Stadium with a counterfeit ticket.

Auburn and Alabama play at 2:30 p.m. Saturday.
