Gators at Auburn Game Set for Evening Kickoff

Auburn, Ala.--Two of the games on Auburn's upcoming three-game homestand will be televised nationally.

Auburn's Oct. 14th SEC showdown game vs. Florida will kickoff at 6:45 p.m. Central time and will be televised by ESPN.

Unbeaten Florida, which is ranked fifth in this week's AP 25 poll, is at home this Saturday against Alabama. Coach Urban Meyer is in his second year in charge of the Florida program.

Auburn has won 20 of its last 21 conference games. "It is hard to comprehend because everybody has got good players," Auburn head coach Tommy Tuberville says.

"We have won at home and on the road," he adds. "We are doing it with different guys each year. It has been fun to watch each team kind of take on its own character. This team is starting to build its own personal traits. It is exciting we have had the success we have had."

Next week's Arkansas at Auburn game will be televised nationally by CBS with an 11 a.m. start.

Arkansas, 3-1 overall and 2-0 in the SEC, is off this Saturday as is Auburn, which improved to 5-0 overall and 3-0 in the SEC with a 24-17 victory at South Carolina.

Auburn will finish its homestand on Oct. 21st with a game against Tulane before hitting the road again for an Oct. 28th date at Ole Miss.
