As you’d imagine, tickets for the Auburn vs. Alabama football game next Saturday are hard to come by (or out of most fans’ price range). AU’s miracle victory over Georgia this past weekend results in a winner-take-all battle between the Tigers and the Tide for the SEC West and a spot in the SEC Championship Game. In what’s sure to be regarded as a thoughtful move, the school is going to air the matchup in the basketball arena for fans who don’t have tickets to the game itself. AD Jay Jacobs made the announcement on Twitter tonight:
The Auburn vs. Alabama game will be shown at AU Arena for fans who do not have tix. Admission is free & concessions will be open.

It’s a great way to give everyone the “fan experience” even though they can’t attend the game. Bravo, AU.
