Comments

Auburn has proved that the Tigers deserve to be in the upper cusp of the SEC. However, they still aren’t in the class with Alabama, LSU or Georgia. That all could change though as the season progresses. Mississippi State picked up a big win against Kentucky last week but they probably won’t win again this week.
