Auburn came out sleeping against Louisiana-Monroe Saturday.
“These types of games are the reason you come to Auburn.”
Something new is also true for this Tigers team: they have swagger.
This Saturday, Auburn will attempt to turn the tide on a series that hasn’t treated them kindly in recent years.
The Auburn football team will begin its November campaign on Saturday as the Tigers travel to Texas to take on a 5-3 Texas A&M team. Head coach Gus Malzahn is in a tough position going into the final stretch of the season.
After an exciting 2013 campaign in his first season, everyone was excited for what was to come in the Malzahn era.
Being able to change the plays on the field is what made Cam Newton and Nick Marshall so effective under Malzahn, so Stidham’s lack of freedom to adjust to the defense is surprising.
After a scoreless fourth quarter, the Tigers had a one-point victory over a ranked team and appeared to have regained their composure.
Luke's attempt at turning the season around will begin at 11 a.m. CT when the Rebels take on the Tigers in Jordan Hare stadium.
Auburn had multiple drives that got to the red zone, but turnovers plagued the offense.
