Auburn vs. Washington State, open thread.
War Eagle, everybody! It’s Auburn football game day once again, finally! Football Saturday is back! Tonight at 6:00 PM Central Time, the Auburn Tigers take on the Washington State Cougars, at Jordan Hare Stadium. The game will be televised on ESPN-U, so check your local listings.
The Washington State Cougars enter Auburn with the same 3-9 record Auburn posted last season, but both teams are hoping to get off to a much better start. The Cougars did their season last year with a huge upset win against arch-rival Washington in the Apple Cup.
The Auburn Tigers officially open the Gus Malzhan era tonight, and folks are anticipating a very fast offense and a whole lot more points than we saw last year. Junior quarterback Nick Marshall makes his Auburn debut, and everyone has high hopes.
After a cool and stormy summer in the deep south, Auburn will likely reach 95 degrees this afternoon, with a slight chance of a pop-up thunderstorm. It will still be warm and muggy at game time, with the temp still in the upper 80s. It’s kind of strange that the hottest day of the summer might be when Auburn opens the season!
As always, feel free to participate in this thread. We’ll be in during the day at times, and on top of the game at 6:00 PM. Let’s all cheer our Tigers on to victory in this one! War Eagle!
