News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports

BASKETBALL

Auburn Basketball played last night. The Tigers improved to 5-1 with a 90-83 victory over USC-Upstate. I could probably look up when the last time Auburn was 5-1, but I'm too lazy. I can also probably guarantee it hasn't happened much, lately.

FOOTBALL

Peggy has written some fantastic things here at College and Magnolia. This week's Undercover Barner is one of her best, and if you don't read it then you should feel very bad about yourself.

The Promised Land is out there. It's not Tuscaloosa, though, that's for sure. Dr. Z traveled to Tuscaloosa and has some thoughts on the Iron Bowl and more.

Remember that stuff about Auburn ending up in the Sugar Bowl? Well, it's looking more likely that the Tigers will be in New Orleans. Auburn is the 2nd highest ranked SEC team in this week's College Football Playoff rankings at 14th. Florida is 15th, though, so a good showing in the SEC Championship could vault the Gators ahead of Auburn.

So, I need someone to explain to me how Jeremy Pruitt - who took over an already great defense - is a candidate for the Broyles Award while Kevin Steele - who took an awful defense and turned it into an awesome unit - is not.
