The Auburn Tigers are quietly making a case that they should be considered one of the best teams in the country. After a blowout win over the Arkansas Razorbacks, the Tigers are getting geared up for a big game against the Alabama Crimson Tide at the end of the season in the iron Bowl. Before that game they have to make sure that they avoid any letdown, especially this week against the Tennessee Volunteers.

The Tigers beat the Hogs by running the ball. Tre Mason made sure Auburn handled its business for its first-year coach on Saturday, rushing for four touchdowns as the Tigers won their fifth straight, another shining moment in what's been a remarkable turnaround season following last year's 3-9 disaster.
For Gus Malzahn, it was a signature moment in a career born and largely bred as a high school coach in Arkansas. It came in front of a large group of friends and family, and it came at the expense of the school the Fort Smith, Ark., native once briefly suited up for as a walk-on and later served as its offensive coordinator. Mason's third touchdown put Auburn up 28-3 to open the second half, helping secure Malzahn's first win in four tries at Arkansas. Now the Tigers will have to focus on the game at hand against the Vols and not look past this big game!
The latest college football betting trends reveal some interesting wagering angles for this SEC tilt.
