War Eagle, everybody! This afternoon Auburn will take on the Florida Gators in a Top-Ten matchup. This game is an important SEC Western Division contest. The winner will likely enter playoff discussion. The loser isn’t eliminated as both of these squads are currently undefeated. However, a loss would put either team’s back to the wall and leave no margin for error.
This game will kick off a little after 2:30 PM, Central Time. The game will be televised on CBS, so expect a late start and tons of commercials. Those attending this game should expect mostly sunny skies, and temperatures in the mid 90’s. There is a slight chance of a popup shower during the game, but that is only about 20 percent. Fans should be treated to an afternoon half moon, high in the sky.
Auburn and Florida played each other every year before divisional scheduling interrupted the series after the 2002 season. Since then, Auburn and Florida have met just 3 times with the last meeting happening in Jordan-Hare Stadium in 2011, and Auburn won all 3 of those contests. The last time Auburn played at Florida was in 2007.
As always, feel free to join in and enjoy this thread. I will at the keyboard all day, observing and enjoying another college football Saturday. I’ll have the play by play for the entirety of this one. War Eagle!
