Auburn AD Jay Jacobs thanks students for support, university buys extra bowl tickets

After the late season run by Gus Malzahn’s team, many Auburn fans were hoping that the last game of the season for the Tigers would be in Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Jan. 8 in the College Football Playoff Championship Game.

Unfortunately for Tigers fans, Auburn will be playing in the stadium but in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl against UCF instead.

To thank the Auburn students for their support throughout the season, athletic director Jay Jacobs announced on Wednesday that the university has bought 750 extra tickets for the students after selling out the allotment of 500 that the bowl originally gave the school.

This will be Jacobs’ last bowl game in charge of the Auburn athletic department as he announced he would resign on June 1, 2008 after leading the Tigers since 2004.
