ATLANTA- Auburn University fans have high hopes for the 2018-2019 football season, with many pointing to quarterback Jarrett Stidham. 

"I think Auburn football is going to be great this year," said Ellie Korotky. "I know our defense is really well last year, we lost some players but I really think we are going to come back."

One fan said that Auburn's defense is good this year and that once a good running back is found the team will be fine.

"Once we find our stride I think we'll be perfectly fine," said TJ Maddox. 

Fans are excited that the season is back. Auburn is scheduled to host Alabama State University for their first home game Saturday.
