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!
