Live updates: Auburn 13, Tennessee 10 (third quarter)
AUBURN, Alabama — The Tigers are back. For the first time in 21 days, Auburn will play a football game, set to kick off against Tennessee at 6 p.m. CST on ESPN.
Auburn fans already got a win this morning when Auburn Undercover reported in our Pregame Notebook that zero Tiger starters are expected to miss the game with COVID-19-related issues. There will still be some players out, but considering the way things looked for Auburn a couple weeks ago when practice had to be shut down for a few days, Gus Malzahn's team has to be happy with the way it bounced back from a spike in cases.
