A lot’s happened in 659 days.
We could argue about what Auburn did or didn’t do on Saturday, but maybe we can agree on our new favorite WAC team.
To celebrate the kickoff of the 2011 football season, here’s a picture from every week of Auburn’s championship 2010 season. Kodi Burns, quarterback turned receiver, scores the first touchdown of the season against Arkansas State, beating the visiting Indian-Red Wolves 52-26. The obscuring shaker just adds to the atmosphere: Auburn was on the road for [...]

For Auburn, a win meant a trip to Atlanta for the SEC Championship. The Tigers were looking to snap a four-game losing streak against the Bulldogs. And, of course, there’s all of that Cameron Newton controversy.
