Today Auburn finally ended up with a win after 4 straight losses starting with Vanderbilt back on October 4th and ending with Mississippi last week, a 37-20 win is a still a win. The weather was great and the game moved along nicely since it was not on TV this time. No “red hat” referee was even on the field which was nice and the pre-game and homecoming festivities were enjoyable as well.
This week was the Ag Roundup in Ag Heritage Park where Auburn showcased the Auburn University Mobile Gasification Unit which converts wood chips and woody biomass into electricity (see more at the NRMDI website or their blog) and they also offered up some great southern food at the Taste of Alabama.
Below are some of the photos I took throughout the day. You can see more of the photos from today at the Auburn vs Tennessee Martin gallery. (Sorry for those who are not on DSL here). Most of the day was spent in the sun (the North endzone will do that) but it was not so hot you couldn’t stand it like previous day games. I was able to get some pretty good shots of the band this week. The Auburn band is usually pretty accessible and this week was no different. So for those band mom’s out there, just click on the gallery above to see more like the ones below.
The next two weeks will probably prove to be very difficult for Auburn. All we have left in the season is Georgia, who always seems to be able to win in Auburn no matter what kind of season we are having, and of course the Auburn vs Alabama game on November 29th in Tuscaloosa. I am sure all those Bama fans are licking their chops at this point. For them, I would hate to get over confident and loose out on a national championship birth by loosing to Auburn but stranger things can happen.
