Tigers Add Two Teams To Future Football Schedules

Auburn, Ala.--Auburn has added Tulane and South Florida to its future football schedules for home games in 2006 and 2007.

Tulane is a former member of the SEC that will be making its first appearance in Auburn since 1950 when the Green Wave comes to Auburn on Sept. 23, 2006. The last time the two teams met in football was in 1955.

South Florida, which is joining The Big East Conference, will make its first appearance ever on the Auburn scheduled.

Athletic Director David Housel made the announcement on Wednesday and also announced the dates for the 2004 schedule as well the teams on the 2005 schedule.

Auburn was scheduled to open the season with Ball Sate, however, for a second straight year that game was postponed. Ball State had one too many games on its 2004 schedule, Housel said. Instead, of coming to AU this year, that MAC team will come to Auburn in 2005 when the Tigers open on Sept. 3 at home vs. Georgia Tech and also play Southern Miss at home on Sept. 24. Louisiana-Monroe replaces Ball State and will be the season opener at Jordan-Hare Stadium on Sept. 4.

The Tigers will play home games that season vs. Mississippi State, South Carolina, Ole Miss and Alabama and road games are at Arkansas, LSU, Kentucky and Georgia.

Auburn players are currently in winter workouts and are scheduled to start practice on Feb. 28th. The annual spring football game is on March 20th.
