Auburn vs Florida Game Open Thread

The Tigers will take on the Gators tonight in Gainesville.

Are you tired of seeing this .gif, yet?

It's disgusting, isn't it? That's the way last season's Florida game ended. Auburn had a chance to pull a major upset on the Gators' home court. Instead, sloppy play led to the Gators pulling out the victory.

Florida has won 23 straight SEC contests. Auburn hopes to stop the streak there. It will be a tough feat for Bruce Pearl's Tigers. Auburn is currently winless on the road this season, and Florida is a tough place to play at.

Auburn struggled at times against Missouri, but the Tigers played fairly clean in that game. If they continue to do so - and get over the scoreless stretches that still plague them - then I believe Auburn can come out of Gainesville with a signature victory for Bruce Pearl in his first season as Auburn's head coach. It's going to take Auburn's best game all season to pull that off, however.

Get ready. It's time for Auburn Basketball.
