AUBURN, Ala. Auburn welcomes Florida Atlantic to Jordan-Hare Stadium on Saturday night. With another 30-plus hours until kickoff, let's take a look back at the best Tigers'-related content to be had earlier in the week.
This cites the best quotes, stories and videos from Sunday-Thursday. With that in mind, this is supposed to be a short and breezy read, hitting on (what I consider) the highlights.
BEST QUOTESDefensive end Dee Ford on the team's expectations for the rest of the season
I think we can win it all. You know, there's no reason to say that we can't. We said we wanted to have the biggest turnaround in college football. Why not win it all?
Offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee on Nick Marshall's leadership:
"I think he's shown it now in a couple of games that were either tight or coming down to the last 'so-to-speak' drive. He's just got a calmness about him. He knows how to win, and whether it's throwing for over 300 against Mississippi State, or against Ole Miss and A&M doing more with his feet, he's not rattled. When something bad happens, like he misses a few throws in a row which happened in the second quarter and stalled us a couple of times or we fumble, he's done a good job of having a short memory and going forward and getting on to the next drive. His teammates believe in him, I know he believes in them and that's been a positive for us."
BEST STORIESFor the second time this season, Auburn was able to come up with a go-ahead drive late in the fourth quarter against an SEC team. And much like he did versus Mississippi State, quarterback Nick Marshall played a big role.
With their victory over the Aggies, the Tigers have doubled up last season's win total, with six in seven games. And hitting the six-win marks means Auburn is now bowl-eligible. There is still a lot that can happen between now and the end of the regular season, but I looked at every potential landing spot for the Tigers this postseason.
