Tigers host Blue Hose at Beard-Eaves

After two straight SEC wins, Auburn steps back into non-conference play Tuesday night hosting Presbyterian College at Beard-Eaves Coliseum.

The Tigers are coming off a big win over No. 18 Ole Miss and won't return to SEC play until a Saturday matchup with Alabama in Tuscaloosa.

Presbyterian, which moved to Division I status, is only 2-20 on the season including a 0-20 record on the road.

"We are coming off an emotional game at home against Mississippi, and we are stepping out of conference. It will be tough for our maturity," said AU head coach Jeff Lebo.
