Why should any part of Auburn's season be boring?â†µ
After ascending to the top of the BCS rankings for the first time in school history, the Tigers were favorites to beat Mississippi handily today, then gave up an 83-yard touchdown run to the Rebels' Jeff Scott on the first play from scrimmage. Predictably, Auburn turned to all-everything quarterback Cam Newton for an answer.
But it came in an odd way: Newton caught a touchdown pass from Kodi Burns — who himself has seen time at both quarterback and wideout at Auburn — to tie the game at 7-7. And that all happened in the first three minutes of the first quarter.â†µ
On a day when favorites are dropping like flies, it sure seems like Auburn will at least have a bit more fight.
