Auburn vs. Arkansas, Open Thread.
War Eagle, everybody! It’s gameday once again in Auburn! Bright and early today, the Auburn Tigers take on the Arkansas Razorbacks in Jordan Hare Stadium. The game kicks off at 11:00 AM Central Time, and will be televised on ESPN-2. We expect the weather to be temperate and mostly cloudy, with temps in the low to mid 70s. A shower is possible by the 4th quarter, so bring those rain ponchos!
Prior to the season, this game was expected to have implications in the SEC Western Division title race. Instead, both teams have fallen on hard times, and it’s a battle to avoid the SEC cellar. It could be argued that Auburn has more to play for in this one, in front of a loud crowd. Auburn seemed to have really stepped its game up two weeks ago against top-5 ranked LSU, taking the Bengal Tigers to the wire in a two point loss.
The wheels have really come off for Arkansas the past month. The Razorbacks lost to Louisiana Monroe in overtime, then were shelled by Alabama, Rutgers and Texas A&M by the combined score of 145 to 36. With South Carolina, Mississippi State and LSU still remaining on the schedule, Arkansas sorely needs a win if they are to have much hope of a bowl trip this season.
As always, feel free to sound off and cheer on our Tigers here on this thread! I’ll be at the game, cheering the Tigers on, and hoping to load up a camera-full of good pictures. War Eagle, and let’s rip those Razorbacks!
