Auburn University has announced fans will be allowed on the field following the Tigers' homecoming game against Western Carolina.
Approximately 15 minutes after the end of the game, fans will be allowed onto Pat Dye Field for about 45 minutes.
"There are countless Auburn fans young and old that would like to have the opportunity to walk the field that Auburn players and coaches past and present have played on," Director of Athletics Jay Jacobs said in a press release. "We felt that this was a great time to do this. We're very appreciative of the Southeastern Conference and Commissioner (Mike) Slive for granting us a waiver and allowing this to happen for our fans."
Fans will be allowed on the field through gates at Section 1, 11, 15, 20, 24 and 34, and are asked to refrain from entering the field over the brick walls in each end zone.
Kickoff for the homecoming game against Western Carolina is scheduled for 2:00 p.m./1:00 p.m. CT at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
