AUBURN, Ala. — Another home win didn’t help the Tigers much in this week’s SEC Country Power Poll.
Auburn (3-2, 1-1 SEC) beat Louisiana-Monroe 58-7, but fell one spot to eighth among 14 teams in the weekly SEC Country Power Poll.
The poll consists of 21 voters from SEC Country and around the nation.
The homecoming win was the last of Auburn’s five-game homestand to start the season and pushed the Tigers one game above .500 (3-2).
Georgia Southern beat Louisiana-Monroe in Week 4, limiting the Warhawks to 350 yards of total offense. Against Auburn, Louisiana-Monroe only recorded 251 yards of total offense. Auburn, in sharp contrast, amassed 688 yards.
Auburn will travel to Starkville, Miss., next week to play Mississippi State in the Tigers’ first SEC road game of the season.
Auburn scraped by Mississippi State 24-20 in 2013, but has lost three of its last four matchups against the Bulldogs.
Saturday’s game will shift the Tigers back into SEC play.
The Tigers will return to Auburn for a bye week. After that, three of the next seven games will be at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Auburn will travel to Oxford, Athens and Tuscaloosa.
Check back next week to see the Week 6 installment of the SEC Country Power Poll.
