Headed up by Coach of the Year, Tommy Tuberville, the Tigers went on to an undefeated season.
The team had Jason Campbell behind center with Carnell Williams and Ronnie Brown in the backfield. They were debatably the most balanced team in college football with Carlos Rogers, Marcus McNeill and Jay Ratliff rounding out the star-studded cast.
The Tigers were ranked No. 2 in both the AP and Coaches' Poll, but they ended up No. 3 in the BCS rankings. Auburn arguably had a tougher schedule than No. 1 ranked USC and No. 2 ranked Oklahoma, but were unfortunate victims of the BCS rankings.
Auburn would go on to play in the Sugar Bowl where they defeated Virginia Tech 16-13.
