Auburn was the most watched team in America last year.
AD Jay Jacobs wants a head start on 2014 at Auburn’s spring A-Day game on Saturday.
Jacobs wrote a letter that was posted to the school’s website on Wednesday, stating: “This year, our A-Day game will be covered by ESPN and broadcast to a national audience. When their cameras pan the stadium, I want their viewers to see a packed house. I want to leave no doubt with future recruits and their families that we have the greatest fans in the country.”
Auburn set a record with 83,401 fans at last year’s spring game, which was the top attended spring game in the country in 2013, and nearly filled 87,451-seat Jordan-Hare Stadium. It also coincided with the final rolling of the oaks in Toomer’s Corner, which were taken down last April.
Just think, Auburn was coming off a 3-9 season in which the Tigers were 0-8 in the SEC.
But the fans were excited to check out new coach Gus Malzahn, who led Auburn to a 12-2 season and spot in the national title game.
