Will Jarrett Stidham continue his hot hand against his first SEC opponent this Saturday? (photo: USA TODAY Sports)

War Eagle folks! It’s the fourth weekend of the 2017 College Football season. And there’s a lot of football on tap this Saturday, including Auburn opening SEC play on the road against Missouri.

Mizzou is coming off a big loss to Purdue. However, the Boilermakers were a strong team, having only one loss after playing Louisville toe to toe in a one-score game. While Auburn gave up five turnovers in last week’s win over Mercer, the Tigers showed improvement despite the miscues. Quarterback Jarrett Stidham completed 32 of 37 passes for 364 yards in the 24–10 victory.

Stidham shook off some of the rust from his 20-month layoff and appeared poised and determined running the team. His performance was the second-most efficient passing game (86.5) in SEC history. It had to be a confidence booster for the sophomore. Question is, “Can the win propel Auburn to its first SEC victory Saturday when the Orange and Blue Tigers take on the black and gold Tigers in Columbia?”

Below we have the broadcast schedule for Saturday’s games leading up to and after Auburn’s 6:00 p.m. kickoff on Faurot Field in Memorial Stadium.

All game listings are Central Time, and all SEC games as well as those involving top 25 teams are underlined. Games on ESPN/ABC can be viewed by clicking here, and games on ESPN3 can be viewed by clicking on this link.

Acid Reign will have an open thread up on Saturday. Be sure to check back here for an open discussion as Acid does his play-by-play during the game. And don’t miss his post-game review late Sunday afternoon.

War Eagle and beat the Tigers!

If Malzahn Were a Gambler

By on September 12th, 2017 in Football 16 Comments »
-24f4f6b3c768650c

Gambling can be fun. It obviously can be addicting. Why is that? Because everyone thinks their luck can turn on any roll of the dice, no matter what happened the roll before. Every football coach in America is a gamblers. There's Riverboat Ron Rivera with the Panthers or the Riverboat Gambler, Tommy Tuberville. Former LSU coach Les Miles was known to take incredible chances such as the 2008 and 2016 last second passes against Auburn. There are the high rollers. There are guys who come out of nowhere and hit it big. There are guys who ride the coattails of savants like in Rain Main. Of course, there are the hustlers such as in "The Color of Money." Literally every coach, one way or another, fulfills a character from a gambling film.
