The Auburn Tigers have been on a roll as of late, remaining the only unbeaten team in conference play in the SEC coming off the weekend.

According to the latest AP Poll released Monday afternoon, the Tigers have risen into the top ten for the first time this season, all the way up to No. 8 following being ranked No. 13 last week and back to back blowout wins over Vanderbilt and Ole Miss.

Not only this, but Auburn is on an eleven game win streak, with all of those wins also coming by double digits.

Despite being undefeated in the conference, Auburn still sits behind SEC foes Tennessee (No. 5) and Kentucky (No. 6), both of whom had big wins on Saturday as well.

Auburn will head to Tuscaloosa on Wednesday to take on an Alabama team coming off a beatdown in Knoxville at the hands of Tennessee.

The game at Alabama will be one of two road games this week for an Auburn team that will travel to Starkville this weekend to take on Mississippi State as well.

Auburn and Alabama will tip off at 6:30 P.M. CST at Coleman Coliseum on Wednesday night on ESPN.
