Axe falls on UAB football program, leaving prospects in scramble

. .

Good Tuesday evening, everyone.

Emotions continue to run high on the campus of the University of Alabama-Birmingham after it was announced that this will be the final season for the football program. Tonight, we assess the financial implications for today's move, including how student scholarships will be handled.

The former Ardmore High School band director is free on bond after authorities arrested him on theft charges. Jamie Bowman admitted to stealing fundraiser money that was supposed to pay for a student band trip. At 10, what's next in the case for Bowman and what impact his actions may have on the band's New Year's trip.

We're also investigating a collision involving two school buses that killed three people in Knoxville. Two children and an adult were killed - 27 other people were injured. We'll check in with police on their investigation into the horrific crash.

Join us for these stories and more tonight on WAFF 48 News at 10.

We'll see you then.
