This will be the 3rd game in a row for Auburn at this venue.
War Eagle, everybody, and happy first day of September! College football is back, today in full swing. This afternoon, the Auburn Tigers will take on the Washington Huskies, in Atlanta. This one is an early top ten showdown. The winner has a chance to propel themselves towards a playoff appearance, while the loser will have little margin for error.
This game will kick off around 3:30 PM, Eastern Time, and 2:30 Central Time. It’s an early kick for Husky fans on the West Coast. The game will be televised on ABC television, nationally. Weather should not be an issue in the closed, air-conditioned Mercedes Benz Stadium, although the walk to the stadium from the parking area will be hot and humid, around 90 degrees near kickoff. There is a chance of a stray thunderstorm, but only a small chance.
I feel like this game will have national appeal, as folks tune in to see if the SEC will continue its winning ways against the rest of the country. In the past dozen years, the SEC has won 9 of the past 12 national championships, and the SEC has won over 60 percent of its bowl games. This game is a great chance for both Washington and Auburn to garner national attention.
As always, feel free to join in and enjoy this thread. I will at the keyboard for my usual play by play, armed with a big mug of coffee and a bowl BBQ potato chips. War Eagle, and let’s see if Auburn begin a memorable season against a tough out of conference opponent. War Eagle!
