It Is Championship Week

This is a time when several top teams will be knocked off

     War Eagle, everybody! This week, the Auburn Tigers football team earns some much needed rest after a brutally tough schedule. It has been a happy week at work for Auburn fans as discussion of Auburn’s spectacular 48–45 win over the Tide in the Iron Bowl has been the talk of the town. This weekend, Tiger fans can watch the championship games and speculate on future bowl destinations. I’ll get into those matchups after the jump.

     After taking Thanksgiving off and loading up on turkey, the Auburn men’s basketball team was back in action last night. Rust was apparent as Auburn had a hard time shooting the basketball early. Defense and rebounding kept Auburn in it, but the Tigers trailed the Furman Paladins 39–31 at halftime. Furman heated up after the half and quickly pushed the lead to 46 to 32. Then, the Tigers started attacking the basket with more regularity and started eating away at the Furman lead.

     Auburn caught and passed the Paladins, but the Furman shooters kept hitting timely shots and had it tied at the end. After a missed reverse-layup attempt by Auburn’s J’Von McCormick, the game went to overtime. Fortunately for the Tigers, Furman sharp-shooters Noah Gurley and Clay Mounce fouled out, and Auburn’s Isaac Okoro and Danjel Purifoy pulled Auburn ahead. Okoro hit a couple of free throws late to ice the game, and Auburn came out with an 81–78 victory. The Tigers are 8–0 this season!

A look at other championship games this weekend after the jump!
