The SEC is allowing the schools in the conference to set their own limits on fans attending football games this fall.

On Wednesday, Auburn decided that it will be having 20% capacity at its games, with the students being treated to priority seating for the season opener against the Kentucky Wildcats.

According to an official release, 20% capacity at Jordan-Hare Stadium will be roughly 17,500 fans in attendance. All general seating outside of controlled premium spaces and those designated for home and visiting team player and coach guests will be reserved for the students at Auburn for week 1.

Future game ticket allocations will be announced at a later date. However, as the season progresses fans should be ready for potential seating changes as more information on the coronavirus is released.

Despite the stadium only being 20% full, things can still get loud with 17,500 screaming fans when the Wildcats make the trip for the season opener.

Hopefully, we see the University of Kentucky take a similar approach to filling Kroger Field for the 2020 season.
