Saturday, 10/29, 7:15 PM: #15 Auburn at Ole Miss
Auburn threw a bit of a wrinkle into Alabama's slow-moving coronation last week, obliterating a pretty decent Arkansas team 56-3, thereby sending notice that this year's Iron Bowl may not be the formality most of us had presumed. The Tigers lost two of three to start the season but have subsequently won four straight, culminating in the Razorback murder scene last Saturday. Ole Miss continues their Kafka-esque season, now catching a white-hot Auburn squad after falling to 3-4 last week with a road loss to LSU. This is a very talented football team, capable of winning each week, until such time as they become emotionally depleted and curl up in a protective shell on their 40-yard line until someone explains to them why they have to play this schedule.
