After surviving a hard fought SEC road win in Lexington last night, the No. 7 Auburn Tigers begin the SEC Gauntlet in week seven, hosting the aerial attack of No. 12 Arkansas in a key SEC West showdown.
A lot has been said and will be questioned about the Tigers as they move towards their goal of an SEC Championship, but one thing remains, a win is a win in the SEC, especially on the road.
After Saturday night's 19 play 86 yard 7:22 drive to win the game as time expired, the Tigers showed grit, resolve, and mental toughness behind the legs and arms of All-American candidate Cam Newton, as losing was not an option.
The following five keys will give the Tigers a game day advantage against the dark-horse championship candidate of the SEC West. These Razorbacks are as good as anyone in the SEC, maybe better, but that's why they play the game.
Just ask Alabama, who was throttled in Columbia.
