Pregame social media buzz ahead of Auburn’s SEC opener with Missouri

The SEC opener is here, and Auburn fans are up bright and early to celebrate.

The Tigers look to bounce back from last week’s tough loss to Penn State inside Jordan-Hare Stadium. This week, the slate has a great chance to be wiped clean as they host Missouri to open conference play.

Although Missouri has been a member of the SEC for ten seasons, this will surprisingly be just the first time that they have traveled to Auburn in their program’s history and only the second time that Auburn and Missouri have met in a regular season matchup.

Last time out, Auburn running back Kerryon Johnson scored five rushing touchdowns in their 51-14 win at Faurot Field in Columbia back in 2017. Auburn also defeated Missouri in the 2013 SEC Championship game, 59-42.

Some fans are excited, while others are hoping to find their confidence once the game begins. Here is a look at what social media is saying ahead of today’s game.
