Doug Segrest: Auburn is building to something big. Whether it comes to fruition in 2021 or begins in 2020 depends on how the Tigers respond to the Iron Bowl loss.
Once DeVonta Smith sprinted past two flat-footed Tiger defenders for the 66-yard touchdown that put the Crimson Tide on the board midway through the first quarter, the outcome became almost inevitable.
Any hope Auburn had of pulling off an upset of the No. 1-ranked team in the country Friday was extinguished in the first 82 seconds of the second half.
Auburn’s men’s basketball team opened its season with a 96-91 overtime victory over Saint Joseph’s in the Fort Myers Tip-Off on Thursday.
Bo Nix led Pinson Valley to a state title in the same stadium three years ago. Now, he faces Alabama. “It’s going to be a tremendous amount different than what it was, I guess, three years ago now. A lot more people, probably a lot louder and a better defense.”

Gus Malzahn did not know the severity of Bigsby’s injury immediately following Auburn’s 30-17 win over Tennessee. But if there is a silver lining, it’s that the Tigers learned their lesson and prepared.

This season, ever since it became evident Auburn’s ceiling was limited, was about getting to the Saturday after Thanksgiving and creating chaos.
With a run of 27 unanswered points, Auburn won Gus Malzahn’s 100th game as the program’s head coach 30-17 over Tennessee. The Tigers head into next week’s Iron Bowl with a two-game winning streak and a 5-2 record.

AUBURN — Eleven days ago, as he basked in the glow of a rousing 48-11 victory over rival LSU, Bo Nix was asked whether part of him wanted to continue playing rather than enter the open date on Auburn’s schedule.
