AUBURN-Auburn fans are being encouraged to “Make the Orange, Blue” Saturday by wearing Auburn blue to Jordan-Hare Stadium when the Tigers face Tennessee in a nationally televised contest on CBS.

Initiated by the Auburn student body, the idea is a one week breakaway from the “All Auburn, All Orange” program.

“This is an opportunity for the Auburn Family to reaffirm our unity and support,” said Lauren Hayes, Auburn University Student Government Association President. “We’ve accomplished that through the ‘All Auburn, All Orange’ program and we’re reemphasizing that this weekend with a change of color. We look forward to a sea of blue at Jordan-Hare Stadium Saturday.”

Saturday’s game against Tennessee will kick off at Jordan-Hare Stadium at 2:30 p.m. CT.
