Under the leadership of Hugh Freeze, Auburn returns to Jordan-Hare Stadium on Saturday, April 8 for the A-Day game. The annual spring game is scheduled to begin a 1PM.

Tickets to attend A-Day in Jordan-Hare Stadium are on sale now through the Auburn Ticket Office for $10 to the general public and free for current Auburn students. Since all $10 seats are general admission, fans are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance to avoid waiting in line on April 8.

According to the Auburn Plainsman, the head coach transition has run smoothly so far, considering Freeze has brought in a top-20 recruiting class along with multiple transfers. The regular season begins on Sept. 2 in a match against the University of Massachusetts.
