AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn won't have a problem drawing attention to its annual spring game later this year.

On Friday, the school announced the A-Day game will kick off at 3 p.m. ET on April 19. In addition, the game will be nationally broadcast by ESPN.

"The crowd at A-Day last year was incredible and was a spring board for our success during the 2013 season," Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn said in a press release from the university. "We look forward to another great turnout this year from the greatest fans in college football."

Last year the Tigers' set an attendance record for A-Day, packing 83,401 fans into Jordan-Hare Stadium. It coincided with Malzahn leading the Tigers on to Pat Dye Field for the first time, as well as the final rolling of the legendary oaks at Toomer's Corner.

Tickets for this year's game are already on sale, priced at $5 each. Seating for the A-Day game will be general admission.
