Auburn wrap-up: 2016 becomes “Kick Five” game as AU is locked out of the end zone

Auburn wrap-up: 2016 becomes “Kick Five” game as AU is locked out of the end zone

Alabama made a barely competitive game close for a half thanks to its own mistakes, which included two interceptions and a rare horrid punt from J.K. Scott that put Auburn in business just outside the red zone. The halftime score of 13-9 served as an effective wake-up call for an Alabama team that mishandled the ball on six other first-half plays – in addition to the two interceptions – and Alabama didn’t wait long to put its foot down on the gas pedal in the second half.

SEC Previews and Predictions: Week 2

All things considered, a 10-3 week wasn’t a bad start for The Predictions Dept., given the level of craziness SEC teams displayed in some of their respective openers. The biggest upset, by rank, was Wisconsin’s surprise victory over LSU that put Les Miles back on the hotseat. But South Alabama beating Mississippi State may have been even more shocking. The quality of games this week takes a nosedive, as it almost always does in Week 2, with the Tennessee-Virginia Tech NASCAR crossover at Bristol Motor Speedway probably taking the prize as the most interesting spectacle.
