Ole Miss at Auburn
October 28 - 30, 2011
The arrival of fall weather in Auburn marks the beginning of the home stretch of the 2011 football season. With temperatures expected in the 60's, it will be a perfect day in Auburn as the Tigers host Ole Miss on Saturday.
After three road games in the past four weeks and another home game three weeks away, the Ole Miss game serves as a great opportunity to visit campus and enjoy the Auburn Game Weekend Experience.
In addition to the football game and the game day activities on Saturday (http://www.auburn.edu/gameday), there are a number of events in and around campus to get you in the Auburn Spirit.
