Head coach Gus Malzahn and the Auburn Tigers had one of the more magical years of any team in recent memory in 2013. Just one year after they went 3-9 with Gene Chizik at the helm, Malzahn steps in and leads the team to an SEC championship and an appearance in the BCS Championship Game.
With a slew of starters from last year back in 2014, including starting quarterback Nick Marshall, optimism is high on the Plains, and that was no more evident than it was on Saturday as the team drew over 70,000 fans to Jordan-Hare Stadium to watch them prepare for the upcoming season in their spring game.

Those over 70,000 definitely got their money’s worth as the Tigers put on an absolute offensive show, proving to everyone that was there–and everyone watching on national TV on ESPN–that they’re more than prepared to defend the SEC title in 2014.
The energy and enthusiasm in Auburn has certainly never been higher.
