Auburn Revived

Recommended Posts

After winning the national championship with an undefeated season in 2010, Auburn's football team gradually sank over the next two seasons, going 8-5 with a middle-tier bowl win (Chick-fil-A) in 2011, followed by a losing season (3-9) in 2012.

Today, they beat 7th ranked Texas A&M in College Station to improve their overall record to 6-1, and will almost certainly vault themselves into the top-20 (they are currently ranked # 24) when the rankings come out tomorrow night.

When all is said and done, Auburn should AT LEAST find themselves in a middle-tier bowl by season's end. Depending on the outcomes of their 2 games with Georgia and Alabama, they could even be looking at a B.C.S. bowl.

Also, the Tigers can't overlook Tennessee, who scored a major upset of their own today over 11th ranked South Carolina. They will have 95,000 rabid Volunteer fans to deal with on that day.

In a best-case scenario for them, #1 ranked Alabama and Auburn would both win out, and then an Auburn win over the Crimson Tide would vault them into the S.E.C. Championship game, and possibly even the national title game .......... but that's a LOOOOOONG way off.

In the meantime, Auburn is flying high, and beaming with pride over their huge road win today ....... and will be looking for a little payback against both Georgia and Alabama, whom both defeated Auburn last year by a combined score of 87-0.

Auburn is 5-0 since this thread was started.

And now that the 9-1 Tigers have taken care of business against Florida International, Arkansas, and Tennessee, all that is left is Georgia and Alabama ...... and Jordan-Hare Stadium will certainly be rocking with 88,000 Tiger fans on hand.
'Venge # 1 completed.

'Venge # 2 up next on November 30th.

'Venge complete.

Big win for Auburn. I think Michigan state can beat Ohio state. If that happens and Auburn wins the SEC championship game they'll be in the BCS title game.

I've never seen anything like that. You guys are tough as nails. What a great game.

I know I'll never stop talking about it.

With all the hype that led up to this game, it wasn't enough really. Who would have thought the game would have been better than all the talk about it.

It's certainly a long shot, but if FSU and OSU lose next week, and Auburn wins, we'll be looking at a rematch for the NC.

That would be amazing.

I saw the headlines were it said Auburn upsets Alabama. How can it be a big upset when the #4 team beats the #1 team at home. It's not a upset if Michigan state beats Ohio state. If Duke beats FSU now that's a upset. Auburn is a great team with a very good running attack. That's the way to beat FSU. I'm calling it right now. Auburn will be the National Champions.

(FROM THE O.P.)

In a best-case scenario for them, #1 ranked Alabama and Auburn would both win out, and then an Auburn win over the Crimson Tide would vault them into the S.E.C. Championship game, and possibly even the national title game .......... but that's a LOOOOOONG way off.

It's not such a long way off, now.

It played out exactly the way that the hypothesis suggested.

Now, there are (likely) only 2 teams ahead of Auburn, as they prepare for the S.E.C. championship game against 11-1 Missouri.

I don't think my heart could take that again. Two iron bowls in the same year...

Great win for Auburn. Congratulations. Bama is going to roast somebody in their bowl. :-)

If Winston stays eligible, believe FSU claims the title this year. Said that before the Iron Bowl. They are the most complete team with no weaknesses.
