The Auburn Tigers enter conference play as the only one-loss team in the SEC. Wednesday night in the Auburn Arena, the Tigers welcome the undefeated Ole Miss Rebels to the Plains. The game will be broadcast locally on WEGL 91.1 FM with Jacob Hillman and Aidan Kowalski on the call for an 8 p.m. first serve.
The matchup just makes sense if the goal is to bring balance to college football. It’s an unfair game when schools are snubbed a playoff spot when analysts speculate what MIGHT happen if two teams played. Limit the number non-conference tune-up games and give fans more matchups worth paying for.
This is Auburn's sixth straight victory over the Georgia and its 13th overall.
It’s a matchup that could shape up to be Auburn’s biggest non-conference matchup of the decade. Visiting a place titled Happy Valley for the first time in program history to face a Top-10 opponent in front of a sea of white challenges what you may expect in a week three matchup. Even more so when this Saturday, chances favor the fact this could be the second largest crowd the Tigers have played in front of since 2004.
