Auburn football: First SEC game time announced; an offensive film room

Auburn football is the No. 1 topic in the War Eagle Wakeup every day — but we cover news, notes and analysis from across the Tigers sports world. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Auburn football, recruiting, basketball and more.

Let SEC play begin

Auburn knows exactly when it will begin conference play … well, kind of.

Gus Malzahn’s Tigers will travel to Columbia, Mo., to take on Mizzou on Sept. 23. Kickoff, as well as the network the game will be broadcasted on, will be announced after the Sept. 16 game against Mercer.

The game will start at either 6 p.m. CT or 6:30 p.m. CT and will be broadcast on ESPN2, ESPNU or the SEC Network alternate channel.

An offensive Ferg’s Film Room

Auburn’s offense stole the show during a loss at Clemson — and not for great reason.

Jarrett Stidham was sacked 11 times behind a struggling offensive line and receivers didn’t have much success, either. Basically, there wasn’t much offense for Auburn in Death Valley.

Fortunately, SEC Country’s Justin Ferguson has a take on who’s fault it is: everyone’s.

Check out this week’s edition of Ferg’s Film Room to see who was at fault in Auburn’s loss to Clemson.
