Weekend Events: AU vs. Mississippi State

Can you believe we are entering the fourth week of college football?! It seems like just yesterday we were anxiously awaiting the reveal of our Auburn Tiger Football team and now here we are going into week four. As we begin marking off previous games with Ws and Ls and start looking to the next game ahead there is one thing that holds true throughout the weeks. That thing is that no matter what happens we are the Auburn Family and pride for our beloved Tigers will always hold steady and true.

And since our love for the Tigers is strong, it can be quite the task to sit by and wait for the next game to roll around. The good news though is that there are plenty of AUsome events to keep us busy in the meantime. Do you know about all of the AUsome events that take place on the weekends of home football games? Well, in case you didn’t I am here to give you the scoop. Below, I’ve listed the exciting events taking place this weekend for the AU vs. Mississippi game.
