It’s another evening affair on the Plains.

War Eagle, everybody! It’s gameday once again in October. Tonight, the Auburn Tigers will take on the South Carolina Gamecocks. This matchup will feature two high-powered offenses on Pat Dye Field at Jordan Hare Stadium. The Tigers hope to stay in the race for titles, while the Gamecocks hope to turn around a disappointing season. This game will be televised on the SEC Network, and kickoff is set for 6:30 PM Central Time.
Aside from annual opponent Georgia, Auburn has only played most SEC East teams one time apiece. Tonight’s contest will be the fourth Auburn game against South Carolina in the past five seasons. Until 20 years ago, these teams didn’t play one another since the Great Depression. Now, South Carolina seems to be one of Auburn’s most frequent cross-divisional rivals. Here’s hoping that the Tigers stay undefeated in the modern era against the Gamecocks!
Perfect fall weather is on tap for this game. It should be around 70 degrees at sunset, with a mostly clear sky. A thin sliver of a crescent moon should be visible just after sunset in the western sky. The temperature will fall through the 60s through the course of the game, with a walk back to the car in the upper 50s.
As always, feel free to participate and enjoy this thread. We’ll be in and out all morning, and there will be the usual play by play at game time. War Eagle, and let’s all enjoy another great Auburn victory over the South Carolina Gamecocks! Eat more chicken!

The road ahead is a long one, six games in a row, three of them against top-ten rated teams who have more than enough reasons to hold a grudge against these Tigers after last year's games. Each of those three are rivals for both the SEC Championship game and the College Football Playoff slots. But I get the feeling this team and this coaching staff wouldn't have it any other way.
Now, it's time to take a look at where this football team is, going forward. There is still a lot of football left to be played, and every game is important. Can Auburn gear up for another championship run in October and November?Read Full Story
The bloodletting has begun. The SEC West has started to play each other in earnest, and the teams currently at the top raise huge questions about the validity of nearly every preseason poll and pundit on the Internet, just like last year when they overlooked Auburn. The two Mississippi teams are now both bowl eligible and undefeated and looking stronger every week. Either this is an unexpected-once-in-a-lifetime occurrence (you know, just like last year), or perhaps those preseason polls and reports aren't worth the ether they're printed on?Read Full Story
