Auburn jumps up nine spots in Week 10’s Associated Press Poll

Auburn is starting to get the national attention it deserves.

The Tigers made a significant jump in the latest Associated Press poll, jumping nine spots to No. 16 overall. It is easy to see why Auburn made the biggest jump of any team, they beat Penn by 20 points and then crushed the Arkansas Razorbacks by 32 points on the road.

The Tigers are one of the three SEC teams to crack the top 25, trailing No. 5 Tennessee and No. 6 Kentucky. Ole Miss, South Carolina and Alabama all received votes, just not enough to be ranked.

The Tigers will have a chance to climb into the top 15 this week with games against Texas A&M and LSU, both matchups will be inside Neville Arena.

Here is a look at the full poll:
