AUBURN, Ala. (AP) -- Auburn coach Gene Chizik is hoping to send his seniors out of Jordan-Hare Stadium as winners.

The Tigers (2-8) host Football Championship Subdivision team Alabama A&M on Saturday in their final home game.

The 13 seniors will be honored before the game. Chizik says "it's been a tough year, but those guys have experienced a lot of success here."

The group includes wide receiver Emory Blake, linebacker Daren Bates, guard John Sullen and injured tight end Philip Lutzenkirchen.

Chizik says the seniors deserve "an outstanding" reception. With university President Jay Gogue having said he'll evaluate the football program after the season, there's a possibility it will be Chizik's finale at Jordan-Hare as well.

This is Alabama A&M's first game against a team from a BCS conference.
