AU win likely secures bowl spot

AUBURN, Ala. - The Auburn Tigers won't be home for the holidays.

The Tigers became bowl eligible with Saturday's 33-20 win over Mississippi, improving to 6-3.

Tight end Tommy Trott says every win from here on is just "icing on the cake." Each win could also move Auburn up the bowl ladder.

The Tigers will be heavy favorites against Furman on Saturday, then face Georgia and No. 2 Alabama.

It's a good position to be in for a team that had lost three straight before beating the Rebels.

It was Auburn's first win over a ranked opponent since beating Clemson 23-20 in the 2007 Chick-fil-A Bowl.

The Tigers produced several big scoring plays: Ben Tate's 53-yard run, Darvin Adams' 28-yard catch and Walt McFadden's 29-yard interception return.
