In Saturday's SEC clash between Auburn and Florida, neither team truly resembled the well-oiled offensive machines that have found themselves atop the BCS landscape in recent years.
Both teams struggled to find rhythm offensively, and Auburn came out on top 17-6 in a defensive battle that was more fitting of a Big Ten matchup than an SEC showdown.
With both teams struggling to replace quarterbacks, Auburn still searching to replace the electrifying Cam Newton and Florida playing without injured veteran John Brantley, Saturday's affair turned into a smash-mouth effort.
Auburn, still riding high off of last year's surprise national title run, showed toughness and determination in holding the Gators at bay.
Here are the winners of Saturday's game—those who stood out for the Tigers on a night when few highlights were produced but an always difficult SEC victory was achieved.
