The Auburn Tigers may find themselves the butt of the college football world’s jokes today, even though they won and improved their record to 2-0. The team needed overtime to defeat FCS squad Jacksonville State 27-20, and ESPN reporter and SEC troll extraordinaire Danny Kanell took to Twitter to offer his two cents.
Well regardless of outcome we know the gap is closing between the OVC and the SEC

Granted, Kanell is just trolling the SEC like he has done many times before, so his words should be taken with a major grain of salt. However, it should be noted that this was almost the second time in five years that Jacksonville State defeated an SEC team. Back in 2010, the Gamecocks beat the Ole Miss Rebels in double overtime, so the team knows how to tango with SEC staples.
Hopefully, Auburn can get itself together before next weekend’s game against SEC rival LSU in Baton Rouge.
