It was a defensive struggle for most of the night—two traditional SEC powerhouses that both desperately needed a win.
At one point late in the third quarter, there were as many punts (13) as there were points.
By the end of three quarters, only one point separated the two teams.
With this modest 17-6 win vs. Florida, the Auburn Tigers improved themselves to 5-2 (3-1 in SEC play) but have a trip to "Death Valley" looming on their schedule next week, where they'll face No 1 LSU.
Nevertheless, Auburn did what it had to do, even though the chances of beating both LSU and Alabama are pretty slim.
So while It's an outside shot, the Tigers still control their own destiny in the SEC.
Here's the grades they received for their 17-6 win against Florida—a victory that keeps them alive (just barely) in the SEC West and the conference championship picture.
