Tigers Pour it on Bulldogs!!!

By on February 14th, 2009 in Football Comments Off on Tigers Pour it on Bulldogs!!!

Led by Tay Waller’s career high 32 points, Auburn stunned Mississippi State this evening at the Beav. Auburn now pulls even in the conference with a 5-5 record, but is still in third place in the west behind the Bulldogs, who dropped to 6-4. LSU, at 8-1, leads the division.

HC Jeff Lebo has now won three conference games in a row for only the second time in his career. Can anyone say four on Wednesday?

Mad props to the Tigers for coming through tonight and creating a little momentum for the upcoming SEC tournament next month. Hopefully, Jay ‘Cheap Date’ Coulter made it in time to get his wife a free rose, ‘cuz a victory over any other SEC foe would still smell as sweet!
