Auburn plays home finale against Alabama A&M

(Continued)

The Tigers' only wins have come against nonconference opponents Louisiana-Monroe and New Mexico State.

Crowds have dwindled as the losses piled up, especially in the second half of blowout losses to No. 5 Georgia and No. 9 Texas A&M with thousands heading to the exits.

Chizik is hoping the seniors get a nice send-off in a stadium that won't be packed.

"I think quite a few people will be in the stands this week," wide receiver Travante Stallworth said.

Senior defensive back Ikeem Means is hoping this won't be the final Auburn home game for Chizik.

"He came in and we were in a bowl game every year, so I feel like he can get the job done," said Means, a former walk-on who has played in a team-high 48 games.

Eight of the seniors have started at least three games this season. The biggest stars are Blake and tight end Philip Lutzenkirchen, who's out for the season with an injury.

McCalebb is the No. 2 rusher and is tied with Lutzenkirchen for second on the team with 15 catches.

"It's finally coming to an end," McCalebb said of his college career. "It came real fast for me. Saturday, we're going to go out there and try to win a game. That's my last game in that stadium. I'm going to miss it. I love it. I love all the Auburn fans and I love the coaches."
