HUGE SEC Road Win

When Auburn had it's back to the wall, and the odds were against them. In a nationally televised Thursday night game described as a "Program Changer" for the Wildcats. The Tigers took the opening drive and made a statement. Not tonight Kentucky, not tonight!


This young Auburn team had heard all the criticism, felt all the heat. When their backs were against the wall, they performed. In a first half fury that saw the Auburn offense explode with 48 plays, more than half this season, Auburn built a 23-10 halftime lead that they would never relinquish. 

The second half saw a return to the slow down style of offense the Tigers have been using all season, and almost cost them the game. Gus Malzahn and company were content to win a close game, although the outcome was in doubt down the stretch. 

The Auburn defense stood tall when it counted most, and this young team found itself, in a huge road win in Lexington, Kentucky.
