If you were a Tigers fan in attendance for Auburn’s 23-16 win against Vanderbilt at Jordan-Hare Stadium on Saturday, you may have been a little too nervous to fully appreciate the Auburn band’s halftime performance.
After all, the Tigers were losing 13-10 and Vanderbilt was starting to appear as a serious threat to what is now a six-game winning streak for the Tigers. But while you may have been chewing on your fingernails wondering if Auburn QB Sean White would be able to make his way into the game after missing the first half because of an undisclosed injury, the Tigers marching band was doing work on the field.
The Auburn band had a special performance lined up for Military Appreciation Day at the stadium, and it turned out great. Lucky for those of us who were not there to see it, the Auburn athletics Facebook page shared a video of the entire performance on Monday. Check it out:
With Vanderbilt placed firmly in the rear-view mirror, the Tigers will hit the road in Week 11 to play at Georgia in the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry. Early lines project Auburn as the favorite in spite of the hostile venue likely awaiting the Tigers in Athens.
