The Tigers keep moving up.

Auburn is now ranked No. 4 in the latest AP Poll following their win over Florida last Saturday. It’s their highest ranking since January of 2020.

Coincidentally, Auburn then lost to Alabama in Coleman Coliseum 83-64 immediately after receiving their No. 4 ranking. The Tigers take on No. 24 Alabama in Tuscaloosa this Tuesday. Let us hope history does not repeat itself.
