Auburn wins first-ever hovercraft challenge
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — The inaugural University Hovercraft Challenge on Saturday turned into a disappointing day for the new Alabama hovercraft team.
The team not only lost to their cross-state rival, Auburn University, but barely got to compete. Equipment failure limited the team to completing one lap of a one-hour endurance race on land and water.
Al.com reports (http://bit.ly/18dNePH ) that the Hovering Tigers of Auburn also had drive-shaft issues, but not until it had completed 24 laps to win the competition.
