After a weekend during which several teams ahead of Auburn took shots, the Tigers... didn’t move much at all. At least it’s in the right direction...
The Tigers check in at #11 in this week’s AP Poll, the second-highest ranked team in the SEC. Here’s the top ten:
- Duke (12-1)
- Michigan (15-0)
- Tennessee (12-1)
- Virginia (13-0)
- Gonzaga (14-2)
- Michigan State (13-2)
- Kansas (12-2)
- Texas Tech (13-1)
- Virginia Tech (13-1)
- Nevada (14-1)
Auburn’s just out of the top ten, but now ahead of Florida State, who lost to Virginia and slipped from #9 to #13, and nearly ahead of Nevada, who got drilled by New Mexico and dropped from #6 to #10.
Other SEC teams in the poll include Mississippi State at #14, and Kentucky at #18. Alabama and Florida are both receiving votes.
This coming week, Auburn begins SEC play with what’s suddenly become a much tougher game than we imagined preseason as the Tigers travel to Ole Miss. Other games this week include:
1/8/19: #23 Oklahoma @ #8 Texas Tech, #12 North Carolina @ #15 NC State
1/9/19: #25 TCU @ #7 Kansas
1/12/19: #4 Virginia @ Clemson, #1 Duke @ #13 Florida State, #8 Texas Tech @ Texas, #3 Tennessee @ Florida
