Auburn gets set for a rematch with South Carolina Saturday in the SEC Championship game.

This is how Auburn coach Gene Chizik hopes to be celebrating today when the No. 5, unbeaten Tigers leads the field against No. 6 -- and fellow unbeaten -- LSU on The Plains.

More chatter from the Plains as the Auburn Tigers get set to face South Carolina in Saturday's SEC Championship in Atlanta. This a rematch of a game those two played back in late September, the Gamecocks unable to hold a 6 point halftime lead, Auburn with 3 second half td's to win that game 35-27.

Auburn Head Coach

"Obviously it's gonna be a great, great football game Saturday. Our football team is really really looking forward to playing in the championship game. It's been a fun 12 game road so far. And again we've started to prepare Sunday. We'll have a normal game week schedule and again we're all excited about playing this game Saturday so it should be a lot of fun."

¶ And then there's this note concerning Saturday's Iron Bowl. The University of Alabama's fired a part time employee who played unauthorized songs during the pre-game, those songs "Take the Money and Run" and "Son of a Preacher Man", aimed at Auburn q-b Cam Newton. The NCAA investigating allegations Newton's father, a pastor, solicited money from Mississippi State during recruiting.
