We’re thick in the game prep for the Clemson Tigers this Saturday, as Auburn will visit the #3 team in the country to try and exact revenge for a close and frustrating loss last season, and try to break a three-game losing streak in the process.
Gus Malzahn met with the media yesterday, so if you’ve got the time on a Wednesday morning, check out his full comments from the session yesterday.
One of the main points out of Gus’ comments was that receiver Kyle Davis, who was suspended for the Georgia Southern game, will be back and should be heavily used against Clemson. He should be able to help out the Tigers’ passing game, as Auburn didn’t complete a pass longer than 19 yards in the opener (although they didn’t really try to stretch the field much).

Finally today, we go to our favorite former Tiger that’s now in the league, as he’s ready to go for the opening weekend of the NFL season without any sort of restriction. Don’t screw this up, Mike Shula.
