War Eagle, everybody! It’s Championship Saturday, and another college football game day for Auburn. This afternoon, the Auburn Tigers take on the Missouri Tigers for the SEC Title. This game will be played on CBS national television, at 3:00 PM Central Time, 4:00 PM Eastern Time. It’s a tale of two unlikely division champs, with Missouri rising from a 6th place finish in the SEC East. For Auburn, it’s been a storybook “worst to first” season. The winner of this game will be BCS-bound, possibly with a chance to play for the national title. The loser will likely fall to the Capital One or Cotton Bowl.
The game will be played in the climate-controlled atmosphere of the Georgia Dome, so weather won’t be an issue during the game. For the festivities outside, raw weather is on tap. Today will be a gray day with periods of rain, becoming heavy after dark. The high temperature will be only 50 degrees, and it will feel chillier than that.
As always, feel free to participate in this thread. Most our staff will be at the game, so participation may be light, but you’ll know that we’re screaming our heads off, trying to help our Tigers win! War Eagle! Go Auburn, and knock off those Missouri Tigers!
