Auburn Basketball 2015-16 Conference Schedule Released

New, 4 comments

Prepare yourselves accordingly. There are going to be some interesting times, this season.

Don McPeak-USA TODAY Sports

Are you ready for Tony Barbee's return to Auburn Arena? It's coming.

The 2015-16 SEC basketball schedule was released this evening, and it includes a game against Kentucky on January 16th at 3pm. The Arena is always rocking when Kentucky comes to town, but I imagine it will be even rowdier for that particular game.

And if any of you Barners out there sell your tickets to a UK fan, then your Barn Card will be revoked with extreme prejudice.

Here is the full schedule in wonderful Twitter form...

Big Games

We know the Kentucky game is going to be big for the reasons already mentioned along with it just being Kentucky. The opening game against Tennessee will be a big one, as well, with the Bruce Pearl connection. Only the Texas A&M game on March 1st is a late evening home game, which is fantastic after all of the complaints last season.

The Iron Bowl of Basketball games will take place on January 19th in Auburn and February 27th at Alabama. So, the Foy-ODK Sportsmanship Trophy should be coming back to Auburn in mid-January, am I right?

It's the SEC, so I could find a reason for every game on this schedule to be a big one after last season's 4-14 Conference record.

Basketball season is right around the corner, too!
