Auburn, Ala.– Coming off yet another comeback win, this time over No. 11 South Carolina, the Auburn Tigers (4-0, 2-0 SEC) find themselves ranked in the top 10 in the country for the first time in two years as they get ready to face Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

One of the fastest rising teams in the polls this year thanks to three consecutive hard-fought wins over solid opposition, the Tigers will need to keep things rolling this week before heading back into a tough stretch of conference games in the next month starting with a trip to Kentucky on Oct. 9 to face the Wildcats at night.

Coach Gene Chizik said his team has to focus on becoming better on both sides of the ball and not about where it is ranked because the expectations should be high each and every time out for a team no matter the opposition.
