TUSCALOOSA, Ala. --- The University of Alabama Police Department, Tuscaloosa Police Department, and The University of Alabama Athletics Department have issued a warning of the possibility of counterfeit tickets being sold for the Alabama-Auburn football game this weekend.

Law enforcement officials have obtained information that a group may be engaged in counterfeiting and distributing tickets for this weekend's event.

Tickets obtained from sources other than The University of Alabama or Auburn University may not be valid and in such cases will not be honored.  Any person buying a ticket from a third party does so at his or her own risk.  Tickets purchased from a third party may be checked for authenticity by ticket office representatives at the University of Alabama or Auburn University before 5:00 p.m. on Friday. 

Local law enforcement agencies will have officers on duty around Bryant-Denny Stadium Saturday who will be checking those selling tickets to assure compliance.
