Vanquish the Vols!
It’s a morning kickoff at Neyland Stadium.
Auburn vs. Tennessee, Open Thread.
War Eagle, everybody! It’s another fine football Saturday, and the Tigers are on the road again this week, in Knoxville, Tennessee. Amen Corner rolls along for the Tigers, as they will play a Tennessee Volunteer team that is 4-1 at home, with the only loss coming in overtime against Georgia. This one kicks off at 11:00 AM Central Standard Time, and it’s on ESPN.
Auburn needs a victory in Knoxville to stay alive in the SEC West race, and are seeking their sixth victory in a row. A Tennessee win would help the Vols several ways. First, it would be a second victory over a ranked opponent. Then, it would all but secure a bowl bid, with Kentucky remaining on the schedule. The Vols have spent the last two holiday seasons at home with a losing record.
It will be a cool and sunny day in east Tennessee. The temperature is expected to be around 50 degrees at kickoff, rising to the mid-50s by mid-afternoon. There should be no chance of rain.
As always, feel free to participate in this thread. We’ll be here with a live play-by-play, and cheering our Tigers on. War Eagle, and let’s beat Tennessee!
