The Tigers will begin the 2016 season with their highest pre-season ranking in program history. Auburn finished in the Final 4, and they'll begin this season ranked 4th.
Auburn hopes to reverse its road fortunes against Ole Miss, tonight. The Rebel Black Bears have a new arena they're breaking in, and this will be the Tigers' first visit there to face a team who also has dealt with injury issues.
Jeremy Johnson will be wearing a new number in 2016. He'll be wearing the #1 in honor of a former high school teammate. Here's to hoping that maybe a new number comes with a renewed mindset that gets him back to his 2013 & 2014 performance levels.
What was Auburn's best game in 2015 and their most intriguing game coming up in 2016? ESPN gives their opinion on the matter. It's hard to argue with their #1. That was quite the impressive performance. They also ranked the offensive backfields in the SEC for the 2015 season. Auburn probably got off fairly well in that ranking for a position group that definitely underperformed compared to previous seasons. Of course, there was no rushing QB threat, this year.
