Auburn Not Taking Chances...

...with their schedule this season. No patsies to puff their football schedule and risk the BCS debacle. They open with..... Georgia Tech. Here's a story about their schedule with GT mention.

With Georgia Tech already on the schedule, nobody at Auburn has any interest in playing a game next season against another nonconference team with a realistic chance of winning.

Georgia Tech will receive $300,000 (for the trip to Auburn), the same amount Auburn received for its game against the Yellow Jackets in Atlanta in 2003.

Auburn plays road games at LSU, Arkansas and Georgia next season. Georgia Tech, the opening opponent, is likely to be nationally ranked. Throw in the rest of the SEC schedule, and there will be no reason to apologize for whoever fills in for Southern Mississippi.
