If you want tickets to the Chick-fil-A Kickoff game and don't want to go through the secondary market, then you better act quickly, since Auburn sold out their allotment. Auburn pointed people towards Louisville's site for ticket inquiries, since the Cardinals haven't sold theirs out, yet. They were close, though, I believe.

The Sporting News is highlighting the first collegiate games for some special QBs, and Auburn is represented in a good and bad way. Bad in Matt Leinart's 2003 debut and good for Cam Newton's 2010 debut. Hopefully in the future folks will be talking about Jeremy Johnson's debut against Western Carolina in 2013.
