Parade to Honor 13-0 Football Tigers

Auburn, Ala.--Auburn University officials will honor their unbeaten football team with a Parade of Champions on Saturday, Jan. 15th.

Members of the 13-0 Southeastern Conference championship squad will participate in the parade, which will start at the south end of Jordan-Hare Stadium on 2 p.m. The parade will move north on Donahue Drive and then turn east on Magnolia Avenue to Toomer's Corner for a "Tiger Walk."

Auburn head coach Tommy Tuberville will speak at Toomer's Corner, the site of a ceremony honoring the Tigers in December prior to their Sugar Bowl victory over Virginia Tech. Auburn fans are invited to join the football team in a traditional rolling of Toomer's Corner.

The celebration will include comments from head coach Tommy Tuberville and will conclude with a traditional rolling of Toomer's Corner.

The AU basketball team will be in action that day with a 4 p.m. home game vs. Ole Miss.

The Tigers' last undefeated football season was in 1993 and prior to that the last unbeaten, untied football Auburn team was in 1957.

The Tigers are also expected to receive the trophy for winning the inaugural fans poll national title in a ceremony that is expected to be held at halftime of an Auburn basketball game. A date for that has not been announced. Auburn finished first in that poll ahead of Southern Cal and third place Utah.

With its victory in New Orleans at the Sugar Bowl, the 2004 Tigers became the first team in Auburn football history to win 13 games in a single season.

The Auburn team, which includes 18 seniors, features players who won or tied for the SEC West title in 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2004. With the victory over Virginia Tech, they improved Auburn's all-time bowl record to 17-12-2 with their third straight bowl victory.
