AUBURN – The defending SEC Champions will have their spring game shown to a national audience.

Auburn’s annual spring football game, A-Day, on Saturday, April 19 will kick off at 2 p.m. CT and be televised live by ESPN, the school announced Friday.

The 2013 A-Day game drew an Auburn record crowd of 83,401 – the highest in the nation last season.

“The crowd at A-Day last year was incredible and was a spring board for our success during the 2013 season,” Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said in a statement. “We look forward to another great turnout this year from the greatest fans in college football.”
