AUBURN, Ala. – Coming off another hard-fought weekend in the Southeastern Conference, Auburn (16-11) completes its season series vs. UAB (12-15) Tuesday at 5 pm CT at Regions Field in Birmingham, Alabama.

“It’s time to put the head down and get better,” head coach Butch Thompson said. “Let’s redefine what we’re doing, circle the wagons and do this together. Let’s be ready to play in Birmingham tomorrow night. That’s probably the biggest thing we can do.

“Sometimes when you go through tough stretches the first thing you lose is your identity,” head coach Butch Thompson said. “We’re all going to come together and do this collectively.”

The game will be broadcast on the Auburn Sports Network and can be heard locally on Wings 94.3 FM. It will also be streamed digitally on ESPN+
