War Eagle, everybody! After a long, hot summer, football season is again upon us! With cooler temps in the air, it feels like fall! It's time to put on the orange and blue, and yell for our Tigers! This evening at 6:00 PM Central time, Auburn kicks off the season hosting Arkansas State. The game will be televised on Fox Sports South.
The Tigers are a 31 point favorite in this matchup, but the Red Wolves have made a habit out of playing BCS teams tough. The Iowa Hawkeyes only managed a three point win over Arkansas State last year. The greatest anticipation on the Auburn side is for the unveiling of the offense. The Tigers will go with a new-look backfield consisting of junior-college transfer Cameron Newton and senior tailback Mario Fannin. Many folks expect this unit to put up record numbers, and it will be very interesting to see how it all begins this evening!
Feel free to drop in any time, and leave a comment. We'll be watching college football all day, and will be here in force tonight to support our Tigers! War Eagle!
