Tiger Walk: Auburn vs. Alabama, 2017

Tiger Walk

What time is Tiger Walk for the 2017 Iron Bowl between Auburn and Alabama? According to AuburnTigers.com kickoff is scheduled for 2:30 CT, and Tiger Walk will be at 12:30 CT.

Auburn Athletics has made no announcement asking fans to wear either orange or blue. If they do, this post will be updated.

Also of interest from the fan primer:

For fans who don’t have tickets for the Iron Bowl, but would like to enjoy the tailgating and campus atmosphere, the Auburn Athletics Department has announced it will show the game feed on the Auburn Arena video board. The video board will stream the broadcast of the game beginning at 2:30 p.m.

There will be no charge for entrance and concessions will be open for popcorn, candy, soda and water. Fans can enter from the main entrance on the north side near the Village residence halls, and seating will be in the 100 and 200 levels.

The Arena opens at 10 a.m. for fans to enjoy the Lovelace Hall of Honor and the Auburn Team Shop.

Now, as for the game itself . . .

Auburn takes the field Saturday against the No. 1 team in the country—again.

Last time, Auburn outplayed the competition—by a little—in the first half; then pulled away in the second. No one expects that result in the Iron Bowl. It’s been a long time since Alabama’s fallen asleep at the wheel. Or, maybe they’ve had so much talent that they’ve just gotten away with it.

This game sets up much like the last Iron Bowl after an Auburn victory over Georgia. Most folks think Alabama has the better team overall. Everyone realizes, however, that Auburn has weapons.

Do we know how to use them? Sometimes. That’s the question, isn’t it—will Auburn use the right fire power in the right moments?

If so, we’ll change the consensus on who has the better overall club; because everyone must rise to the moment for those weapons to hit their targets.

The Baton Rouge debacle seemed to derail this season’s highest hopes. But, our guys kept playing. They kept fighting. Now, they’re one win away from playing in a national championship quarterfinal, against the team who had been No. 1 in the country—again.

Beat bama. War Eagle!
