Running out of Steam

Auburn has now officially closed out the Gus Malzahn era finishing this COVID-altered year with a 6-5 record, following a 35-19 loss to Northwestern in the Citrus Bowl.  The Tigers will now look ahead to next year and the beginning of the Bryan Harsin era on the plains.

Auburn Meets Northwestern in Citrus Bowl

Auburn (6-4) squares off with Northwestern (6-2) to ring in the new year of 2021 on January 1st at noon central time.  The Tigers will be transitioning from the Gus Malzahn era to the Bryan Harsin era, although current defensive coordinator Kevin Steele will act as the interim head coach for the Tigers in the Citrus Bowl.  Auburn is making their record-tying sixth appearance in this particular bowl game.

Auburn's defense leads the charge in 24-10 victory

Auburn's defense held Mississippi State to 10 points on Saturday, behind Roger McCreary and Smoke Monday's interceptions.  “It looked like an Auburn defense,” Malzahn said. “Really proud of those guys and the effort that they had tonight.”

Rolling With the Tank

For the first three quarters, Auburn and Mississippi State struggled in a defensive stalemate.  When the offense finally arrived to Starkville in the fourth quarter, it was the Tigers' offense which shined.  Auburn scored two fourth quarter touchdowns to pull away from the Bulldogs and end this COVID altered regular season on a high note with a 24-10 road triumph. 

Powell leads the way as Auburn wins a close one

Auburn and Memphis met this Saturday at the Holiday Hoopsgiving event in Atlanta, Georgia and it was the Tigers of Auburn that came away with the victory. In a very hard fought matchup, it was freshman Justin Powell that once again stepped up for the Tigers and propelled them to victory.

The Road Bo

During Bo Nix's nearly two seasons as the Auburn starting quarterback, he has undeniably been a different quarterback at home vs on the road.  As the Tigers' quarterback, Nix has only lost two home games.  That number jumps to six losses on the road or at a neutral site.
