AUBURN, Ala. (AP) _ The LSU-Auburn football game will be played as scheduled Saturday, a decision made by Auburn officials following an assessment of Hurricane Ivan's damage.

Auburn wanted to make sure LSU could fly into Montgomery on Friday afternoon and there would be enough support personnel to work the game, Auburn officials said on the athletic department's Web site Friday.

The hurricane hit Alabama and Louisiana on Thursday. Auburn players stayed at two hotels near campus Wednesday and staged a walk-through of the game plan at hotel meeting rooms the next day.
