Arizona State @ Auburn Live Blog

 It's final week of regular season meets before the conference championships. Tonight, I'm live blogging Arizona State at Auburn.

Auburn has had a hell of a season. They've upset higher ranked teams such as Alabama for the first time like, ever and they're currently ranked in the # 7 spot. At this point, it's likely that Auburn is going to get that coveted fourth spot in the evening session of the SEC Championships.

Arizona State just had their head coach, Renee Lyst, put on indefinite administrative leave. Yikes, on top of that, they've been devastated with injuries denting their line-ups. How will the teams fare tonight? Refresh the page every 5-10 minutes or so to find out!
