Just Keep Shooting - Auburn rallies to stun LSU in OT

It was a heavyweight matchup in Auburn Arena.  Two Tigers doing fierce battle in The Jungle.  The atmosphere was electric.  The effort and action from both teams was superb.  In the end, it was the orange-and-blue striped Tigers who got in the last blow.

Auburn's Defense Leads to Rout of Georgia

Auburn got off to a slow start against the rival Bulldogs.  Fittingly, it was Anfernee McLemore coming off the bench who provided a key spark in Auburn Arena with his dunk early in the first half.  Auburn's bench played arguably their best game of the season while scoring 34 points.

It is probably not the style of basketball that Auburn fans have been accustomed to seeing from the Tigers, but the team found a way to pick up the win.  A squad that has been known for their defensive prowess in years past beat Wofford 84-82 last night to begin the 2019-2020 campaign. 


Florida, Georgia Lead Charge in SEC East

South Carolina's double OT shocker of an upset against the Bulldogs has upset the apple cart in the East.  It seems to be shaping up as a two team race between longtime rivals Florida and Georgia, with Missouri getting to play the role of spoiler.
