Game Preview and Open Thread - #12 Auburn vs #18 Minnesota

There’s an Outback Bowl afoot today at noon Central time, and it pits our Auburn Tigers against Minnesota. Minnesota, a team that we’ve never played, and which hasn’t had a season like this one in quite some time. Did you know that the Golden Gophers have a Heisman Trophy winner? 1941 - Bruce Smith. That name could be made up for all we know. What did he do to win? Back then you just had to be sort of a legend since they didn’t have Twitter stanning for different candidates. He’s a tall tale. Minnesota has a lot of those, and we don’t have to thank them for their contributions to Americana.
