Joe Foucha is excited for his debut on Saturday in Tiger Stadium against Auburn.

The Arkansas transfer missed the first 4 games of the season because of academic issues related to transfer credits. The New Orleans native, though, is familiar with what to expect at Tiger Stadium after previous visits to the stadium.

“It’s unmatched,” Foucha said. “I remember coming here as a kid, the stadium be rocking, it’s loud, the echoes bouncing off the wall, it’s unmatched. I’m really looking forward to it. I don’t want to be looking down the road, but just to hear that noise when we play Tennessee and I’m actually playing, it’s a different feeling. Ever since I’ve been here the home games have been loud, and I know Auburn’s going to be the same environment. Once you play here, it’s an unmatched environment.”

Foucha is expected to deliver immediate help to a Tigers secondary that’s dealing with the absence of Major Burns, who will be out for several weeks with a neck injury.
