MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - It's not so hard to put Auburn in a
hole. Keeping the second-ranked Tigers there is much more

Unbeaten Auburn has had to climb back from sizable deficits,
including a school-record 24 points against Alabama. The Tigers
have even done it against No. 18 South Carolina, which couldn't
hang onto a 13-point lead in their last meeting.

The Tigers would like a better start against the Gamecocks and
not live on the edge with a championship on the line.

But their resilience is a big reason Auburn will get a national
title shot if they can beat the Gamecocks again in Saturday's
Southeastern Conference championship game. The team has eight
come-from-behind wins, and half of those came after trailing by
double digits.
