For those of you that haven’t heard, the Auburn’s 2008 schedule has been put out. Things to note are as follows:
1) We drop Florida and pick up Tennessee.
2) We have only seven games at home this year, instead of the usual eight. This year features the first game of a home-and-home series with West Virginia and we travel to Morgantown in 2008.
3) We pick up a tough non-conference foe in Southern Miss.
4) We have a bye week in October, which will provide a much needed break in the middle of the season. This season, we played 11 straight games without a break. Last season, we played all 12 games without a break.
As I mentioned in a previous post, we have scheduled Tennessee Martin.
Oh, I almost forgot, opening day. We open the season against Lousiana-Monroe. The last time we played UL-M was opening day in 2004. At that time, I think the team went by the Indians, but now call themselves the Warhawks.
When they arrive next year, we should greet them with a hearty thanks.
After all, they just beat Alabama.
