#15 Auburn at Missouri
The first set of highlights we'll take a look at is when Auburn travelled up to Missouri. The Tigers had already bested inferior teams Georgia Southern and Mercer. However, Auburn's young offense had a rough go of things in Death Valley against #3 Clemson. Missouri was a question mark as far as just what kind of team Auburn was and what kind of team they were going to be. The 51-14 victory by Auburn was a greta glimpse at to what was to come the rest of the season.
#13 Auburn vs. #24 Mississippi State
A Top 25 matchup with an always tough Mississippi State team (the same team that almost knocked off Alabama in Starkville) after a big win had many fans worried. A 49-10 beat down of the Bulldogs was how the Tigers responded
#21 Auburn at Arkansas
After a blowout of Ole Miss and a sloppy loss to LSU after blowing a big lead, Auburn hit the road to Arkansas looking to rebound. Would the Tigers get into a funk now that they had 2 losses and no hope of the playoffs or would they respond? The 52-20 win over the Razorbacks answered plenty.
#10 Auburn vs. #1 Georgia
The 121st meeting Deep South's Oldest rivalry saw a Top 10 match up as Georgia looked to continue their fairy tale season and Auburn looked to stay in the SEC West race. After the past few installments of the rivalry, Auburn fans were not too confident on how things were going to go but the Tigers showed they were a legit contender in the SEC Title race by embarrassing Georgia in the national spotlight with a 40-17 win.
#6 Auburn vs. #1 Alabama
The only thing better than beating a #1 Georgia would be a repeat performance against a #1 Alabama, which is exactly what happened. The 26-14 Iron Bowl victory propelled Auburn in the SEC West Title game and a regular season record of 10-2.
