Vanderbilt Stadium at Dudley Field
(Auburn at Vanderbilt, Open Thread.)
War Eagle, everybody! It’s another early game day for the Auburn Tigers! At 11:21 AM Central Time, the Auburn Tigers will take on the Vanderbilt Commodores in Nashville. There should be an azure blue sky with temperatures rising from the low 60s at kickoff into the mid to upper 60s by game’s end. The cool breeze will feel nice, but don’t forget your sunblock if you’re attending the game!
It’s an unprecedented time in modern Auburn history, as the Tigers are more than seven point underdogs to the Commodores. If there’s to be any chance for a bowl trip this year, the Tigers must start winning here in Nashville. A loss in this game would put Auburn in the position of having to run the table from here on out, to qualify.
Expect a youth movement from the Tigers today, as true freshman middle linebacker Cassanova McKinzy has been given the keys to the car and the starting nod. True freshmen corners Joshua Holsey and Jonathan Jones will likely start also, with the task of containing dangerous Vanderbilt receiver Jordan Matthews.
As always, feel free to sound off here, and help us cheer on the Tigers! We’ll be here all game long, calling ‘em like we see ‘em! War Eagle, and let’s go beat Vandy!
