Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn went without his trademark visor on Thursday night for a good cause.
Malzahn was “Visor free for the HBC” in the game against Kentucky to pay respect former Gamecocks head coach Steve Spurrier and to help raise awareness and money for flood relief efforts in South Carolina.
The visor Malzahn would have worn during the game against Kentucky was autographed and will be auctioned on AuburnTigers.com with all proceeds going to the American Red Cross and South Carolina flood relief efforts.
“Coach Spurrier is one of the all-time greats and his influence on me and my coaching style goes back to my days as a high school coach when I started wearing a visor,” Malzahn said. “I’m very appreciative for everything he’s done for me and the game of football. He’s played a large role in making Southeastern Conference football what it is today and will be missed. Going visor free for tonight’s game is a small way to pay respect to Coach Spurrier and help raise money and awareness for a great cause.”
Auburn’s auction will closes Oct. 22.
Vanderbilt last week contributed to the S.C. relief efforts by delivering two equipment trucks loaded with bottled water to the USC campus.
Missouri this week is collecting paper supplies, such as plates, bowls, cups, towels, toilet paper and tissue paper, to contribute to the families and areas affected by flooding in South Carolina.
