This Saturday at 6:30pm in Jordan-Hare Stadium, Auburn football will host the Hornets of Alabama State University. It will be the Tigers home opener for the 2018 season.
ASU defeated their rival Tuskegee University in the annual Labor Day Classic on a 30 yard scamper around left end for the overtime victory. It was their first win against Tuskegee since 2011.
The Hornets special teams also had a big play blocking a FG attempt in the game. This something that Auburn has been working on to stop. Hopefully that work pays off.
Here is Gus Malzahn's Tuesday press conference where he reviewed the Washington game, and looks ahead to Alabama State:
On a side note, fans at the game may want to get to the concessions stands early, so they don't miss the halftime entertainment. Alabama State has a very good "Show Band" as opposed to Auburn's marching band. Should be fun to watch.
