For the 21st consecutive season, Alabama softball will play in the NCAA Tournament. The Crimson Tide earned a No. 8 national seed in this year’s field of 64 and will host Arizona State, Lipscomb and Alabama State this upcoming weekend in Tuscaloosa.

Vegas put out its incredibly early over-under win totals for most of college football for 2019 recently.

I highly doubt any casual fan of SEC sports even knew Auburn University had a softball program prior to 2014. Tina Deese deserves a lot of credit for nurturing the program from infancy in 1997 until 2013, but the Tigers simply weren’t very good for the majority of those 17 years.

The Auburn Tigers wrapped up spring practice over the weekend with the annual A-Day Game in front of over 40,000 people at Jordan Hare Stadium.

Auburn’s four quarterbacks each impressed in Saturday’s A-Day game, teaming up to complete 29 of 36 passes for 367 yards and five touchdowns in a high-powered first half.

I’m fully aware there’s a good chance I’ll be kicked out of the state for this, but my heart is with Virginia this weekend.

Back at the beginning of the college basketball season, Carson Dark asked his dad, John Dark, to take him to the Final Four. It’s an experience the 2018 Benjamin Russell graduate has always wanted as a lifelong college hoops fan.

There are only four more days of college basketball this season which means the long, seven-month wait between games is way too close. However, after a thrilling weekend of Elite 8 games, basketball fans are expecting to see more of the same across the final six games of the season.

On April 6, 2013, the Auburn men’s basketball team was looking for answers after recording its lowest win total in 24 seasons. One year later, the Tigers were three weeks into the Bruce Pearl era with dreams of building a program that could compete with the blue bloods of college basketball.

The Auburn Tigers wrapped up the regular-season on Saturday with a thrilling victory over the No. 5 Tennessee Volunteers 84-80 in front of a sold-out crowd at Auburn Arena.

The college basketball regular season is winding down, but the excitement of March Madness won’t truly begin for a couple of weeks. The college baseball and softball seasons are just beginning, but we won’t know a lot about the teams until conference season begins in a couple of weeks.

The Auburn Tigers did something Saturday that has become an all too rare occurrence. They won a basketball game against Vanderbilt in Memorial Gymnasium.

Major college athletics needs a commissioner — someone who is willing to listen to multiple arguments for improvement then make tough (even if unpopular) decisions, someone who understands today’s landscape of player empowerment while maintaining valuable traditions unique to college sports.

In  what’s become an annual tradition, I and a few of my friends load up and take a road trip once a season to watch an Auburn basketball game.

The Auburn Tigers’ men’s basketball team has lost three in a row and fallen out of the Top 25 bringing its Southeastern Conference record to 2-4 on the year. It’s a stark contrast to a season ago when the Tigers opened league play 5-1 through the first six games.

Former Auburn All-American Carnell ‘Cadillac’ Williams has been named running backs coach at Auburn, Tiger head coach Gus Malzahn announced Wednesday. Williams helped lead Auburn to an undefeated season in 2004 while earning All-America honors that year. The 2005 NFL Rookie of the Year, Will…

Auburn’s defense of its 2018 SEC men’s basketball title got off to a rocky start last week with a 15-point road loss to the Ole Miss Rebels.

Don’t think for a minute tonight’s Music City Bowl isn’t important for the Auburn Tigers. With that attitude, then last season’s Peach Bowl wasn’t very important, either. We know how that turned out — and beating UCF would’ve sure been sweeter than finishing the season with a thud.

The college football early signing period begins today and will extend through Friday. Auburn is expecting a fairly sizable group to sign on the dotted line today and I’ll talk more about them later.

On Dec. 6, 2015, Will Muschamp resigned as defensive coordinator of the Auburn Tigers after a 6-6 season and took the head coaching position at South Carolina. It took Gus Malzahn almost an entire month to find a suitable replacement. The Tigers played in and won the Birmingham Bowl against …

The college football regular season has ended, but that doesn’t mean there’s not a lot to talk about. We have the College Football Playoff, the bowl games, graduate transfers and enough coaching changes to make your head spin. The Auburn Tigers are involved in a little bit of everything, so …

The Auburn Tigers gave an inspired effort in the first half of Saturday’s Iron Bowl, playing the No. 1 Crimson Tide to basically a stalemate. A three-point deficit after 30 minutes was a lot closer than either fan base was expecting.

With time running out, Alabama had the Iron Bowl won. Leading 17-15, all the Tide had to do was run out the clock. Assigned to write the game story — and design the remaining Sunday sports pages for the Opelika-Auburn News — I bolted from Jordan-Hare Stadium on this crisp November night and …

A lot of national sports talk centered around the Southeastern Conference’s lax football schedule last weekend. Alabama hosted The Citadel, Auburn welcomed Liberty, Georgia took on Massachusetts, etc. Even pundits you think would be more SEC-centric (such as Greg McElroy) took potshots at th…

The Georgia Bulldogs defeated the Auburn Tigers 27-10 in Athens, Georgia, on Saturday night to bring Gus Malzahn’s record against the Bulldogs (as offensive coordinator and head coach of Auburn) to 0-6 in games not played in Jordan Hare Stadium.

Playing against a top-five opponent Saturday night, Auburn jumped out to an early lead and looked to play the part of spoiler, but No. 5 Georgia proved to be too much as the Tigers dropped a 27-10 decision on the road.

The Auburn Tigers’ 2018 season officially hit rock bottom on Saturday as they fell to the Tennessee Volunteers 30-24 on an absolutely gorgeous fall afternoon in the Loveliest Village.

Barack Obama won the Presidential Election. The stock market plunged 777 points in one day. Gasoline shortages caused massive price hikes across the Southeast. It was 2008 and Auburn football endured a woeful season that saw five wins (one was 3-2 in Starkville), Tony Franklin removed as off…

When Auburn lost to LSU on a last-second field goal, most people (including myself) pointed to the game against Mississippi State as a bit of a crossroads for the Tigers that would have a huge impact on the rest of the season.

I could pump sunshine and tell you Auburn is a playoff contender. But c’mon, offensive struggles tell us that’s far from the truth. I could paint a doomsday scenario where the Tigers are about to free fall from relevancy into the pit of a disastrous season. A free fall of some sort is possib…

The Auburn Tigers defeated the Southern Miss Golden Eagles, 24-13, Saturday despite a brief monsoon and a two-and-a-half-hour weather delay four minutes before halftime.
