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.
The SEC announced Monday their weekly honors and for a second straight week, Freshman Maddie Prohaska took home defensive player of the week.
