'Bama misspells 'Mississippi' on football tickets

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Alabama football has the national championship trophy and a newly expanded stadium that seats 101,000 people. Now, if it just had spellcheck.

Alabama tickets for the upcoming season include an embarrassing mistake: The university misspelled the word “Mississippi” on tickets for the Nov. 13 home game against Mississippi State, using just one ‘p’ instead of two.

Alabama sports publicist Doug Walker said Thursday there was what he calls an “unfortunate oversight” during the editing process. He says officials are reviewing what happened and trying to prevent the same thing from occurring again in the future.
