Nosa Eguae set to square off against high school teammate in SEC title game

AUBURN, Ala. — Walking into a gym in his hometown of Mansfield, Texas, last December, Nosa Eguae ran into an old friend. Eric Waters had just finished his own workout. There, the high school teammates reminisced about the 2012 season. It didn’t go the way either would have liked; Eguae’s Auburn team went 3-9 just two years after winning a national title. Waters’ Missouri squad, meanwhile, finished 5-7, the first time the Tigers had finished under .500 since 2004.
