Auburn gymnastics vs. Kentucky: How to watch Friday’s home opener

The No. 11 Auburn Tigers face the No. 9 Kentucky Wildcats on Friday night at Neville Arena, and if you’re wondering how you can watch the action live, you’ve come to the right place.

After a successful start to the 2024 season last weekend in Las Vegas, the No. 11 Auburn Tigers are set to host the No. 9 Kentucky Wildcats for the home opener at Neville Arena.

Auburn scored 196.600 in their debut meet, the Mean Girls Super 16 Championships. The Tigers came in third place, defeating then-No. 5 UCLA as part of a quad-meet session with No. 4 Alabama and No. 6 California. Kentucky, who participated in the same competition, scored 196.775. The Wildcats defeated No. 14 Michigan State and No. 20 Michigan as part of their session and lost only to No. 1 Oklahoma.

Head coach Jeff Graba welcomes the idea of hosting a top-10 squad for the home opener.

“I think it’ll be a really good test,” Graba said of Kentucky. “We’re just excited to get in Neville Arena. This is what they all signed up for. You can taste the excitement in our practice facility. I love the fact that we have top 10 teams coming. My goal is to beat them in the end of the year.”
