Auburn 82, Alabama 77: Hard questions ahead in wake of Johnson’s second-year slump

By Chris DePew TideFans.com staff Feb. 4, 2017 Alabama surrendered 15 3-pointers to Auburn on Saturday and a furious late rally could do little more than turn another potential blowout into a bitter 82-77 loss against the Tigers at Coleman Coliseum. What did we learn today?: Avery Johnson is staking his Crimson Tide career on […]

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.

Auburn preview: Tiger defense will keep AU in it

Depending on how deep one’s crimson blood runs, news Monday that initial Las Vegas lines were coalescing around an 18-point spread in Alabama’s favor could either be considered easy money, or a sucker’s bet.

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.
