Auburn football: Slowing it down before the November rush
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.
Slow weekend on the Plains
The bye week means one thing: There’s just not as much going on.
Sure, there’s football to watch and important baseball games to enjoy, but for those diehard fans of orange and blue, it’s just a strange weekend.
It’s much needed, however, for fans and Gus Malzahn’s football team. Injured players can rest and fans have an opportunity to breathe before the rush of November.
A trip to Texas starts the month and then it’s three straight games on the Plains. And fan support (and more importantly, noise) will play an important part in what could be big upsets of Georgia and Alabama.
Since there’s a lack of action on campus this weekend, it’s the perfect time to rewatch Auburn’s win against Arkansas — or at least the highlights.
