AUBURN, Ala. — For the third year in a row, the Auburn Tigers will take over the SEC Network for a day. This time around, fans can enjoy some of Auburn’s biggest wins from the 2016-17 year, along with a few notable football victories.
Auburn’s takeover of the SEC Network begins at midnight ET/11 p.m. CT on Thursday, July 20. The primetime highlight this year is from the 2013 Auburn football season, but it’s not the “Kick Six” win over Alabama.
Instead, the “Prayer at Jordan-Hare” game against Georgia will take the major time slot at 7:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. CT. The 2013 Iron Bowl will air at 4:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. CT, along with the 2013 SEC Championship Game, the 2010 BCS National Championship game and the 2004 SEC title game.
This year, Auburn has five different sporting events from 2017 on the schedule for its SEC Network takeover — including a pair of major upsets in two different sports over Florida.
Here’s a look at what Auburn fans will be able to enjoy this Thursday on the SEC Network, along with some spoiler alerts to jog any memories:
Midnight ET: Auburn football vs. Missouri (2013)
Spoiler alert: The 2013 SEC Championship Game was the highest-scoring in conference history, as Nick Marshall and Tre Mason led the Tigers to a memorable shootout victory over upset-minded Missouri. Mason seals a trip to the Heisman Trophy ceremony with his MVP performance, and Auburn books a trip to the final BCS National Championship Game.
2:30 a.m. ET: Auburn baseball vs. Florida (2017)
Spoiler alert: Auburn baseball sent a message early in the 2017 to the rest of the country by sweeping eventual national champion Florida in a home series. This is Game 3, when the Tigers notch a walk-off victory over the Gators to clinch their first sweep over the powerhouse in 30 years.
4:30 a.m. ET: Auburn softball vs. Mississippi State (2017)
Spoiler alert: In Auburn’s final home series of 2017, the Tigers pulled off their most memorable victory of the season. Auburn hit two home runs in the bottom of the final inning — including a walk-off grand slam — to take down the Bulldogs.
6:30 a.m. ET: Auburn women’s basketball vs. Tennessee (2017)
Spoiler alert: Auburn hammered one of college basketball’s proudest programs at home, snapping a nine-game losing streak against the Volunteers. Janiah McKay set a career-high in points as the Tigers got a memorable victory inside Auburn Arena.
8 a.m. ET: Auburn football vs. Alabama (1986)
Spoiler alert: The famous “Tillman Reverse” game. In Auburn’s first year post-Bo Jackson, the Tigers knocked off the Crimson Tide with Lawyer Tillman’s first career touchdown with less than a minute left in the game.
10:30 a.m. ET: Auburn men’s basketball vs. Alabama (2017)
Spoiler alert: Before he went to Egypt as a member of Team USA, Austin Wiley introduced himself to many with a breakout performance just a few games into his college career. Bruce Pearl’s Tigers rout Avery Johnson’s Crimson Tide by 20 in this one and pull off the season sweep in Tuscaloosa a few weeks later.
Noon ET: Auburn football vs. Tennessee (2004)
Spoiler alert: Although the Tigers were shut out of the BCS National Championship Game in 2004, they put on quite a show in Atlanta in the SEC title contest. Jason Campbell accounted for more than 400 yards and scored three touchdowns as Auburn took down Tennessee by 10 points.
2:30 p.m. ET: Auburn soccer vs. Florida (2017)
Spoiler alert: On the road against No. 1-seeded Florida squad, Auburn soccer pulled off a memorable 3-1 victory that sent the Tigers to the Elite Eight for the first time in school history. Winning in Gainesville isn’t easy, and doing it in the NCAA Tournament made this one an instant classic for this Auburn program.
4:30 p.m. ET: Auburn football vs. Alabama (2013)
Spoiler alert: There shouldn’t be much spoiling here for Auburn fans. Chris Davis goes 109 yards on the final play of the 2013 Iron Bowl to clinch the SEC West and create what has been called the greatest ending in college football history.
7 p.m. ET: This Is Auburn
7:30 p.m. ET: Auburn football vs. Georgia (2013)
Spoiler alert: Before the Kick Six, there was the Miracle at Jordan-Hare. Nick Marshall floats up a prayer into double coverage, and it somehow deflects off of Georgia’s pass defense and right into the stride of Ricardo Louis for the most improbable touchdown in program history.
9:30 p.m. ET: This Is Auburn
10 p.m. ET: Auburn football vs. Oregon (2010)
Spoiler alert: The Tigers end a 53-year national championship drought in the desert with a surprisingly low-scoring victory over high-powered Oregon. Cam Newton, Nick Fairley and Wes Byrum each have their memorable moments as Auburn wraps up an undefeated 2010 — and this year’s SEC Network takeover — with a championship.
