“How many teams in the country are sold out of season tickets before the season starts?” Pearl asked. “How many teams in the country have been sold out of season tickets for four straight years before the season starts? We have a great homecourt advantage. We have a very challenging home schedule, and we need to take advantage of it.
“The continued support for our team from the Auburn Family means so much to all of us. I am so thankful to our fans, the greatest and most loyal in the country.”
Last year, Auburn ranked third in the SEC as Auburn Arena was filled to 85.9 percent capacity behind Florida and Kentucky. The Tigers have ranked either second or third in the league for the past three seasons.
