Week Five SEC West Preview

There is arguably no division in College Football that is more competitive week in and week out than the SEC West, with three of the top seven teams in the nation being from it. Here is your weekend preview of the games taking place in the West. 

Slim Pickings for Week Five in the SEC East

It is slim pickings during week five in the SEC East as three teams have bye weeks. Georgia and Missouri are going on byes following big wins while Tennessee searches for anything to salvage the 2019 season. While those teams prepare for week six, Florida and Vanderbilt will have matchups against non-conference opponents and Kentucky will square off with South Carolina in Columbia.

Auburn Ends Weekend with a Sweep

The Tigers (6-5) finish non-conference play in Kalamazoo, Michigan against the IUPUI Jaguars Saturday afternoon with a 3-0 sweep (25-19, 25-13, 25-19). After a game one loss against Michigan State in four sets, Auburn comes back to win the next six to go 2-1 on the weekend at University Arena in the Western Michigan Tournament.

Auburn Volleyball sweeps Western Michigan Friday

The Auburn volleyball team (4-5) is in their final non-conference stretch of 2019 finishing their 3-game weekend in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The Tigers dropped their morning game vs Michigan State earlier today 3-1 but come back with vengeance to sweep the night cap game against host team Western Michigan (28-26, 25-20, 25-18)

Baseballs Next Era

On August 31st, Twins catcher Mitch Garver crushes a 93mph fastball thrown by Matthew Boyd over the left field wall. This was the 268th homerun hit by Minnesota in 2019 which broke the Major League record for most team homeruns in a single season.

OPINION | Gus Malzahn vs. Jimbo Fisher

  Imagine, as I'm sure every Auburn fan does, that the Tigers were able to stop Florida State on their last drive and win the championship. Would Malzahn be on a hot seat like he has the last three years, or would he be viewed as one of the best coaches in the SEC?

Bo Nix's First True Road Game

 Nix showed improvement versus Kent State, going 12-16 for 161 yards and a pair of touchdowns (one rushing). This Saturday will be Nix's true first road game, at a very loud Kyle Field against an experienced A&M defense.
