AUBURN - The start of Southeastern Conference basketball is a few days away but Auburn head coach Jeff Lebo has already called his first play. This one is for the fans.
Lebo is calling for a "White Out" and is asking all AU fans in attendance at the Coliseum to wear a white shirt for the nationally televised game against Arkansas on Thursday. The Tigers (9-3) play host to Arkansas (11-3) on Thursday at 8 pm Central in Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum on ESPN2.
"This is something that Auburn fans can have some fun with and will be unique to our game," Lebo said.
2,500 white t-shirts will be distributed to fans courtesy of the U.S. Army and the team store in the Coliseum will be selling a special $5 white t-shirt.
A special performance by the Team Acro Dunk Extreme Dunkers will take place during halftime.
Advance tickets can be purchased online at www.auburntigers.com or by phone at 800-AUB-1957. General admission seats start at $7 and can only be purchased at the Coliseum box office on gameday.
