Auburn Adds Furman to 2009 Football Schedule

(GREENVILLE, SC) -  Auburn is filling its 2009 football schedule with Furman, a Southern Conference power that has posted more winning seasons than any other school in its conference since 1980.

The Tigers are scheduled to host the Paladins at Jordan-Hare Stadium on November 7, 2009.

The Tigers haven't played Furman since 1956 and have won all three meetings with them in their history.

Furman hasn't played an SEC team since losing to Vanderbilt, 49-14 in 2002, but they have South Carolina on their schedule in 2010 and Florida in 2011.
