Numbers for New 2016 Auburn Football Tigers


jf3.1Almost all of the new guys (freshmen to seniors) have made it to campus, so that means almost all of the new guys (and some of the old guys) have their new numbers. With the release of Auburn’s media guide at SEC Media Days, we now know what those numbers are going to be. However, as we saw last year, a few of them may change before September 3rd.

Most of the guys below are freshmen getting their first college number, but of course there are transfers or an older guy getting the number he always wanted. Sadly, in the greatest atrocity in college sports, there are even duplicate numbers within these new number assignments. Take a look.

Other than that, there isn’t anything too groundbreaking. Are there any numbers or new guys that excite you? Leave a comment below.
