News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

The ladies are up to their highest ranking (well, tied for it) in school history as they come in at the #9 spot in the latest NCAA rankings.

FOOTBALL

Peggy has Week 2 of UndercoverBarner for you as she tries to calm anyone thinking the sky is falling after Jeremy Johnson threw three interceptions against Louisville.

Along those same lines, WarRoom Eagle broke down Jeremy Johnson's three interceptions as well as a few really good plays and throws.

In the rankings, Auburn remained where it was ranked in the preseason at #6 in one poll and #7 in the other after their performance against the Cardinals. Some new SEC teams made their way into the rankings this week.

Gus Malzahn spoke to the media about injuries, the Louisville game, and the upcoming matchup against Jacksonville State. One important note is that all of the players who left the Louisville game with injuries are expected to play on Saturday.

Jay Jacobs spoke to the media along with Gus Malzahn yesterday morning and responded to the Wall Street Journal article from a week or so ago and said there was absolutely no conflict of interest for the athletic department in that situation.

He also spoke about new additions to "Restaurant Row" in Jordan-Hare Stadium, as the Tigers add new places to get food inside the gates.

TeamSpeedKills broke down the first week in the SEC for the conference's SEC site.

AL.com ponders just where Duke Williams will play during the 2015 season as he spent the Louisville game line up in his old slot position as opposed to the outside receiver position where he has been practicing.

ESPN's SEC Power Rankings are out. Alabama is still #1, and there's some movement among the other teams with the way the weekend played out.

ESPN also calls the weekend a wake-up call for all of college football that talk of the SEC's demise on the national landscape may be a bit premature.

The SEC Championship Game is going to remain in Atlanta for quite some time the Conference announced, yesterday. The game will be played in Mercedes-Benz Stadium after its completion in 2017.
