RECORD CROWD: A total of 1,810 fans packed the lower bowl of Auburn Arena on Wednesday, Oct. 2, to watch the Tigers' match against Alabama, setting a new Auburn volleyball attendance record. The crowd shattered the previous top Auburn volleyball attendance record of 1,215 fans, set in 2009 as the Tigers played LSU. In three matches so far at Auburn Arena, the Tigers are averaging 1,125 fans per match.

CLOSING IN ON 1,000: With 996 career digs, senior Sarah Wroblicky is just four away from reaching the 1,000-dig mark for her career and will almost certainly do so against Ole Miss on Sunday. She would be the 10th player in Auburn history to reach that plateau. Senior Katherine Culwell also is within striking distance of 1,000 career kills by the end of the season. With 877 kills heading into this week, she needs to average 8.8 kills per match the rest of the way.

OTHER NOTES: The Tigers are No. 101 in the initial NCAA RPI, released this week ... Auburn has lost six straight matches ... Three of Auburn's four SEC losses have come against teams in the top 25 of the NCAA RPI (#12 Missouri, #16 Arkansas, #23 Kentucky)... The next three home matches at Auburn Arena will be televised: Oct. 18 vs. LSU & Oct. 20 vs. Texas A&M (SportSouth), Nov. 3 vs. Mississippi State (CSS).
