Fans Weigh Ticket Options for Auburn's First Home SEC Matchup of the Season


By Brittany Bivins

The Auburn Tigers are gearing up for a tough game against second-ranked LSU this Saturday. And while some fans are ready to pack the stands, others are a little more cautious about their team's prospects.

The LSU Tigertown Mafia has been rolling dozens of RVs into Auburn since Wednesday, and these LSU fans say they're not taking anything for granted. "Any SEC game, I don't care who you're playing, it's going to be a challenge. It's always going to be a good game. It's never going to be something you're going to run away with," said Tim Seinhan, who traveled from Baton Rouge for the game.

However, Auburn native Michael Walker says he's not so sure. "I'm not going to go, mainly because I feel like we're going to get totally demolished, and I just would hate to be in the stands and just sit there and watch us," he said.

Die-hard Auburn fans say they're holding on to hope, though-and their season tickets. "You always have people selling tickets no matter what game it is, so there are students selling tickets, but there's also so many students still going," said Lindsay Sanford, an Auburn student.

Boo Sivarman said he did sell his tickets this year, but only because he needed the money for school. "Auburn has a good shot. They always live up to the big games, so LSU should be a good opponent, and I think we really do have a shot at upset," he said.

The Auburn ticket office didn't confirm how many tickets had been sold, but they did tell CBS 8 News seats are available throughout the stadium. The game is scheduled for kickoff at 6 PM at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
