Featuring a powerful running attack and a stiff defense, Auburn Tigers football tickets are more popular than ever. With head coach Tommy Tuberville directing the ship, fans of SEC football are clamoring to get their shot at seats in Jordan-Hare Stadium to see their beloved Tigers battle for a chance to play for the SEC Championship and quite possibly a spot in the BCS National Championship Game.
The BCS denied an undefeated Auburn team the opportunity to play for the national title in 2004. Tuberville is out to make sure that doesn’t happen again this year. The War Eagles are squawking, and SEC football fans are talking. This could be the year Auburn brings home a national championship to Jordan-Hare Stadium. Jump on board for a ride of a lifetime with Auburn football tickets.
The Player: From Bo Jackson to Ronnie Brown, Cadillac Williams and Rudy Johnson, Auburn has an established tradition of producing stellar running backs. Kenny Irons is the next on that historic list.
A bruising tailback with breakaway speed, Irons is off and running in the 2006 NCAA college football season. He’s good for one tackle busting, highlight-reel play per game, as SEC rival LSU knows. Last season, against Les Miles’ Tigers, Irons plowed his way to 218 yards, highlighted by an amazing 71-yard touchdown run in which he appeared to bottled up, only to squirt free for a run to the house.
The senior from Dacula, Georgia transferred from South Carolina after his freshman season, sat out his sophomore year, and then emerged as a national superstar in 2005. Irons, whose older brother David Irons plays in the Auburn secondary, led the SEC in rushing last season. Come out to Jordan Hare Stadium and support Kenny Irons’ run to the Heisman trophy, before he heads to the NFL.
The Coach: After a tumultuous start to his tenure at Auburn, Tommy Tuberville has endeared himself to Auburn ticket holders. His teams are annual SEC and national title contenders. The former Ole Miss head coach has returned Auburn football tickets to their rightful place on the college football hierarchy. He led the Tigers to an undefeated season in 2004 that was topped off by a win over Virginia Tech in the Nokia Sugar Bowl. During his tenure at Auburn, he has not only established the Tigers as a national power, but he’s also proven that he’s one of the best coaches in all of America. Now, he’s dying to punch Auburn’s ticket to beautiful Cardinals Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, site of this year’s BCS National Championship Game.
The Tradition: A Saturday afternoon at Jordan-Hare Stadium oozes with the rich traditions of the Southeastern Conference. There’s plenty of tailgating and fan fare, as the War Eagle faithful don their Auburn gear to root on the Tigers against the best the SEC has to offer. So break out your best War Eagles garb and pull out the grill. It’s tailgating time in the SEC. Make this the year you experience the Auburn tradition with Auburn football tickets.
