AUBURN, Ala. — "Luck" and "fate" are two of the least likely words you'll hear to describe the 2014 edition of the Auburn Tigers. This is the height of irony, of course. Those two terms — along with "destiny" — were so firmly affixed to last year's Tigers that a casual viewer wouldn't have been out of line in thinking the words were part of Auburn's official team name.
