Auburn face off against Eastern Kentucky in season opener clash

As the No. 15 Auburn Tigers gear up for their season debut, their formidable lineup packs a punch with a potent mix of power hitters and defensive stalwarts. Last season, the Tigers outscored opponents by an impressive margin, averaging nearly 9.5 runs per game while holding opposing teams to just over 2 runs. Their offensive prowess is highlighted by a team batting average of .310 and a slugging percentage of .520, showcasing their ability to produce runs in bunches.

Auburn gets first SEC road win at Missouri

It was an all too familiar feeling when Auburn (15-8, 4-6) blew a 15-point lead, allowing Missouri (11-13, 2-9) to tie the game at 48 in the third period. However, the visiting Tigers would rally to defeat Missouri ***** and get their first road SEC win. 

Amped-Up Auburn heads south to take on Florida

Coming off an emphatic home win vs Alabama in what Bruce Pearl called “The most important game of the year,” Auburn will travel down to Gainesville, FL to take on the Florida Gators, a road trip that has proved to be a tricky one for Auburn and Bruce Pearl. Pearl is yet to win a game in Gainesville as Auburn’s head coach, and Auburn itself hasn’t won in Gainesville since 1996.

Determined Auburn awaits Alabama

Just two weeks ago, a top-ten Auburn team went to Tuscaloosa looking to knock off their arch rival. Instead, they found themselves down 14 points at halftime and fighting to make it a game. They found success in the second half, but in the end, they came up just short against the Tide. Now, the two will face off again, this time in Neville Arena, and according to Auburn star forward Johni Broome, “it’s personal.” 

Tale of two halves: Auburn falls at Arkansas

Auburn (14-8, 3-6) fell to Arkansas (17-7, 5-4) in Fayetteville on Saturday evening. The Tigers went to Fayetteville, still looking for their first road conference win. The start was as good as they could have hoped for, but the Razorbacks found their rhythm in the second half to comeback and take down the Tigers.
