Game Preview and Open Thread - Auburn vs Winthrop

Charles Barkley night, but something tells me we’ll be talking Alabama tonight at Auburn Arena.

Zach Bland - Auburn Athletics

Yes, Bruce Pearl and his Auburn basketball team play tonight on Charles Barkley Appreciation Night against Winthrop at Auburn Arena.

No, I don’t think there are betting odds on how many times Rod Bramblett mentions tomorrow’s Iron Bowl matchup on the radio broadcast tonight.

The Tigers will meet Winthrop tonight at 6 pm CST at Auburn Arena, amid a sea of RVs and early tailgaters spread across the Auburn campus.

Auburn finished 2-1 at the Charleston Classic and have had a few days off to enjoy the holiday and get a little practice in before returning home to continue the non-conference slate. Winthrop comes in at 2-2 and will have to deal with a rather frothy crowd tonight as Charles Barkley gets honored ahead of tomorrow’s statue unveiling outside of the arena at 11 am CST.

Either way, the Tigers should have a pretty easy time tonight with Winthrop, as the focus is truly on tomorrow’s football game. Here’s how to tune in for the game:
