Links: Auburn slides back into AP poll at No. 25, ranked No. 22 in the BCS

Ah, the evolution of a blog post. For the first week or so, I planned this post to be a simple glance around the SEC, but it’s starting to evolve a little bit. For instance, Auburn’s national rankings fluctuate with each passing week, I’ve been posting it on Twitter, and there is really no reason to keep the numbers out of this space. So I’m going to add another quick look to the blog, beginning with Auburn’s national rankings.

Auburn is still unranked in the coaches poll, but the Tigers moved back into the AP poll at No. 25. Auburn (6-3, 4-2 SEC) also moved up one spot to No. 22 in the BCS standings.

Offense

  • Total offense: 89.
  • Rushing offense: 29.
  • Passing yards: 104.
  • Passing efficiency: 67.
  • Scoring: 73.
  • Turnovers: 57.

Defense

  • Total defense: 74.
  • Rushing defense: 85.
  • Passing yards: 54.
  • Passing efficiency allowed: 68.
  • Scoring: 74.
  • Turnovers produced: 36.
  • Turnover margin: 49.

I’ll have more on Auburn after Gene Chizik’s teleconference this afternoon, although with the bye week looming, the normal Sunday night media availability will not be happening. On to a glance around the rest of the SEC as the season’s final third gets underway. Vandy had a chance to upset Arkansas and failed. Florida had a chance to pick up some momentum with a win in the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party and failed. Both Kentucky and Tennessee dropped games and find themselves sitting at 3-5 and needing a late-season push to reach bowl eligibility.

But first, let’s start with what the Mississippi beat writers are saying about Auburn’s win last night.
