Auburn fans have basketball fever to the point that they have to hit the road to see the Tigers up close. Andy Burcham, Voice of the Tigers, shared this tidbit during an appearance on SiriusXM College Sports.

Auburn fans go on the road because tickets are easier to get on the road to watch Auburn than at home,” Burcham said.

Burcham noted a strong War Eagle presence in Alabama for the Iron Bowl of Basketball.

“There were probably 1,500 to 2,000 Auburn fans in Tuscaloosa Tuesday night,” Burcham said.

While showing up at an opponent’s home in the state isn’t a huge surprise, Burcham went on to say he knows Auburn fans who will be leaving the state this weekend.

“I’ve already spoken to several people here in Auburn who are making the trip to Oxford, Mississippi this Saturday night because tickets are easier to get to see an Auburn basketball team at 5-6. hours than they are here at home,” he said. “It’s an amazing atmosphere in Auburn and people are thrilled.”

Bruce Pearl’s team is currently on a 12-game winning streak. If the Tigers get to 13 on Saturday night, that could be enough to secure a No. 1 ranking in the upcoming AP Top 25. Auburn at Ole Miss is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. CT, airing on the SEC Network.
