Know Your Enemy: Auburn

Opponent: Auburn Tigers. (University was also called the East Alabama Male College and Alabama Polytechnic Institute. We would make fun of that, but UF was the merger of the East Florida Seminary and Florida Agricultural College, so we don't have much ground to stand on.)

Location: Auburn, Alabama

Previous Game Against UF: 2006, defeated UF 27-17. Since 2001, the teams have alternated wins and losses, so it should be UF's turn to win. Between 1995 and 2000, UF won seven in a row in the series.

This season: 2-2 (0-1 SEC)

Notable Statistic: From the Auburn game notes; the Tigers have won six consecutive SEC road games, and eight of their last nine against AP top-10 teams. Not included the game notes? They lost to USF and Mississippi State, and needed late heroics to defeat Kansas State at home.

Notable Player(s): LB Tray Blackmon will be available after missing three games due to a bum ankle. As a team, Auburn is 15th nationally in tackles for loss. A big part of that is DE Quentin Groves, who is tied for 19th nationally in tackles behind the line. The guy who may make you curse after he breaks a Kyle Jackson tackle will be WR Rodgeriquis Smith who has 11 catches this season and two TDs last week vs. mighty New Mexico State.

Unconfirmed Rumor About Team: Auburn's practice of having a Tiger and Eagle represent the university was almost rectified in the mid-1990s. Auburn scientists took a female Bengal tiger and fertilized her with a male golden eagle. The animal created had whiskers, a beak, feathers, and four legs. Due to the horrifying sight, "Tagle The Tiger-Eagle" currently resides comfortably in a climate controlled barn with several love bugs.
