Auburn fans have started arriving in Aggieland, and they say they are ready to experience some Aggie traditions before the football game on Saturday.
Marvin Ussery is a proud Auburn alum who wears his school spirit on his sleeve...and on his cars...and he isn't alone.
"We've got five motor homes that pulled in today. There's probably at least that many more that will be coming in the next day, and the day after that," said Ussery.
Ussery says his RV group has been caravanning to Auburn football games together for more than ten years. They go to almost every away game and every home game.
Traveling together has become a way of life, even though many of them live in different cities.
"We're from Daphne, Alabama down on the coast. Me and my wife Sally," said Ussery.
"Destin, Florida," said Mac Walker.
Walker says he is looking forward to tailgating with the Aggies.
"We have a lot in common. One thing is that we all hate Alabama," said Walker.
There's no question that the group loves Auburn football. However, they say their tradition of carvanning to away football games has become so much more.
"We laugh a lot of times that it's not really about the football game. It's just that the football game brings us together to have good times," said Ussery.
The Convention and Visitors Bureau says there are still hotel rooms available in town this game day weekend. However, the rooms available are at premium prices, so they are more expensive.
