The team is looking forward to competing at home after opening the season on the road in California on Sunday.
“Our team is excited for the home opener this Friday night,” Auburn head coach Jeff Graba said. “After a very long road trip it will be nice to get in front of our own fans and perform. I believe Auburn Arena is the best place in the country to compete and this is mainly due to the tremendous atmosphere that our loyal fan base creates. This should be the start of an exciting year and we kick off our home schedule with a SEC matchup against a very talented Kentucky squad.”
