SEC Power Rankings: Auburn, Florida meet in basement

·2 min read

The Auburn Tigers have fallen off of the face of the earth.

After asserting themselves as presumably the second-best team in the SEC West after beating Ole Miss, Auburn has now lost three straight games to Texas A&M, Mississippi State, and South Carolina, putting the Tigers at fifth in the SEC West. The sobering reality is that Auburn will most likely finish the regular season 6-6 after starting 6-2. A colossal meltdown from Auburn.

Florida, on the other hand, seems to have had enough of their meltdown, firing Dan Mullen after losing to Missouri in overtime. A pair of the conference’s most prestigious programs are going through droughts right now, and as an Auburn Tiger fan, I can’t do anything but sit in stunned disbelief.
