After eight games, it finally feels like Fall on the Plains. The weather has turned cool around Jordan-Hare Stadium. Auburn begins the home stretch of the 2007 season tonight when it welcomes the Ole Miss Rebels to Pat Dye Field.
On paper the game looks like a cake walk. The Rebels are still looking for their first conference win of the season and rank last in nearly every statistical category in the SEC.
But Ole Miss has a dangerous side to them. They have played tough games with Florida and Alabama and are capable of hanging with anyone in the conference. What team shows up tonight is anyone’s guess.
The same can be said of Auburn. Coming off a heartbreaking, last second loss to LSU, many are wondering how the Tigers will respond. Tommy Tuberville said it has been a challenge getting the team over last Saturday’s loss.
This Auburn team has a lot to play for and they know it. The remaining schedule is very manageable and another 10 win season is possible. Look for Auburn to rebound nicely tonight and really take control in the second half.
We’ll have the open thread up all day. Feel free to share your comments on what’s happening in the college football world and your take on the Auburn-Ole Miss game. I’m heading to my tailgate spot in just a few minutes. I’ll check in with everyone after the game. War Eagle!
