2007 Auburn Football

Auburn Football Helmet

Read about the Current Auburn football team at 2010 Auburn Tigers Football.

2007 turned out to be a great year for Auburn football after all. First, the amazing 6th straight Iron Bowl win. Now, the 23-20 overtime win over Clemson in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl. After a rough start to the 2007 season, the Auburn Tigers finished strong and ended up 9-4, and ranked 15th nationally. They also may have found their QB of the future in Kodi Burns who led Auburn to the Clemson win.

Our 2007 pre-season discussion of Auburn Tigers football follows:

Auburn football has a proud Southern tradition. It was home to Heisman Trophy winners Bo Jackson and Pat Sullivan and was where John Heisman himself once coached. (See the numerous articles listed below relating to Auburn Tigers football history).

The 2007 edition of Auburn football will be very strong again. The Tigers have become a top-tier SEC football fixture under the head coach Tommy Tuberville.

Of course, their rivalry with Alabama (the "Iron Bowl") is probably the biggest all-time college football rivalry in America. The Iron Bowl is watched by tons of college football fans every year who find it nearly impossible to get tickets to the big game.

Auburn football went undefeated in 2004 when they won the SEC Championship but were famously snubbed from the BCS Bowl Championship. With great talent and smart coaching the Tigers will be serious contenders in the SEC again this year.

In 2006, Auburn had a great season with an 11-2 record and finished third in the SEC West (behind Arkansas and LSU - isn't the SEC amazing?). The Tigers went on to defeat Nebraska in the Cotton Bowl 17-14 and finish ranked in the top 10 nationally. Their defense was outstanding, ranked seventh in the nation, and only gave up 13.9 PPG.

After continuing "the streak" and winning the fifth straight Iron Bowl, the Auburn Tigers enter this season with great confidence. Despite the loss of key players Kenny Irons, David Irons, and Courtney Taylor, the Tigers are optimistic that their starting quarterback, Brandon Cox, and seven returning defensive players, will maintain their winning culture.

Cox will also have several big targets in Rod Smith, Montez Billings and Prechae Rodriguez. However, aside from Smith, none of them have much experience. One big question about Auburn football this pre-season is their offensive line, which returns only one starter, King Dunlap.

Auburn football had eight players asked to join the pre-season All-SEC coaches' team, with DE Quentin Jones, who nearly tied Auburn football's record for most sacks last season, being selected to the first team. Jones is also on the watch list for the 2007 Ted Hendricks Defensive End of the Year Award.

There is little doubt that Auburn will go to a major bowl game again. They have a shot at pulling out the SEC West Championship. The problem is - as we say often - the SEC is just so darn tough.

Auburn has a really tough schedule playing Florida, Arkansas, LSU and Georgia on the road. How many wins can you reasonably expect in those 4 games. Then, they have the Iron Bowl game against Alabama. The rest of their games should be relatively easy wins. Still, you have to expect 2-3 losses in those 5 big games. They probably cannot win the SEC-West with 2-3 losses.

So, we pick Auburn to finish second in the SEC West, behind LSU.
