There’s watching the BCS Championship on a big screen…

2011 BCS Championship logoFrom what we’ve been hearing via various digital outposts, there are no known tickets left for next Monday’s BCS national championship game in Glendale, AZ between Auburn and Oregon. The official word at least is that StubHub doesn’t have any left (or couldn’t guarantee any that are).

What to do? Well, the folks at al.com’s Montgomery bureau have made the best suggestion yet for Auburn or Oregon fans in the region. Those willing to drive over to the Carmike Cinemas Summit 16 at the popular shopping destination on Highway 280 will get a chance to watch the game for free – provided they purchase a concession area combo.

Those who choose to watch the game there should not be complaining about someone blocking their view…

Where do you plan to watch the game (provided the weather cooperates)?
