Auburn postpones White House visit
AUBURN, Ala. -- Auburn's football team isn't heading to the White House this week after all.
The national champions were scheduled to fly to Washington on Thursday evening and then meet President Barack Obama, who is now set to travel to Alabama on Friday in the aftermath of deadly storms that hit the state.
Auburn spokesman Kirk Sampson says the trip has been postponed and hasn't been rescheduled yet.
The Tigers were to participate in a "Let's Move!" South Lawn Series Youth Football Clinic on Friday.
Sampson says Fairley and Newton had been expected to attend even though they were in New York for the NFL draft Thursday night.
