Gig the Golden Eagles! (Auburn vs. Southern Mississippi Open Thread)
Tigers last met USM 10 years ago
War Eagle, everybody! This afternoon, the Auburn Tigers host the Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles in Jordan-Hare Stadium. Both teams are coming off big wins and are looking to successfully continue their respective seasons. For Auburn, it’s a week to work on the offense after gaining just 225 yards in a 34–3 win over Arkansas. For the Golden Eagles, it’s an opportunity to score a major upset of an SEC team in their own back yard. It has happened before. Auburn lost back-to-back games to Southern Mississippi in 1990 and 1991.
This game will kick off at 3:00 PM Central time, on the SEC Network. At kickoff for this one, temperatures should be around 85°, falling to the upper 70’s around sunset. It should be partly cloudy with a slight chance of a shower today at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
As always, feel free to join in and enjoy this thread. I will at the keyboard for my usual play by play on my main desktop! I should be able to operate at full speed this week. I’m hoping for a big Auburn win in game five. Auburn usually starts really tearing opponents up this time of year. War Eagle, and let’s smash Southern Miss!
