Time now for another Auburn opponent preview. On October 24th, Auburn will travel to Fayetteville, Arkansas for a grudge match with SEC West rival Arkansas.

War Eagle, everybody. It's a somber day, as I have just been informed that former Auburn center James Kiger passed away early this morning in an automobile accident. Kiger was a member of the undefeated 1993 Auburn squad and was the starting center on the 1996 team for Dameyune Craig that went 8 - 4 and won the Independence Bowl. Kiger helped Craig set an Auburn total offense in a single game record that didn't fall till Nick Marshall broke it in last season's Iron Bowl.

His problem is putting, which is mediocre at best. Jason is at 2 under after the first round (only 3 behind), just teed off (Pacific Time a... Read Full Story
