The Auburn Tigers are looking to start 2017 and end the 2016 season with the same win.

The 17th-ranked Tigers will take on the seventh-ranked Oklahoma Sooners Monday, Jan. 2, at 7:30 p.m. in the Allstate Sugar Bowl in New Orleans.

The Tigers have spent the past several days mixing practice with bowl-related events, including a visit to Ochsner Hospital for Children.

Though there has been lots of partying in the Big Easy this holiday weekend, this is a business trip for Auburn as it looks to improve its record to 9-4.
