The 17th-ranked Auburn softball team has had its final games at the NFCA Leadoff Classic cancelled Sunday due to unplayable conditions at the South Commons Complex.

The Tigers now play defending champion and currently fifth-ranked Michigan on Tuesday at Jane B. Moore Field. First pitch is slated for 7 p.m. CST. The game will carried live on the Internet at www.auburntigers.com and WZMG-AM (910). Admission to the game is free.
