Monday links (10/5)

The blog is tired after a long weekend in Knoxville, but we managed to roll out of bed this morning to find these links to get you through Monday Enjoy. (And don't forget to follow the blog on Twitter. We're 229 followers and growing strong!)
  • Auburn's up to fourth in the SEC in ESPN.com blogger Chris Low's power rankings. The Tigers jumped Georgia and now trail Florida, Alabama and LSU. Here's what he had to say:
  • 4. Auburn: The surprise of the league has clearly been Gene Chizik’s bunch. Somebody must have forgotten to tell the Tigers (5-0, 2-0) that they weren’t supposed to be any good in Chizik’s first season. That offense has been something else with Chris Todd throwing and Ben Tate and Onterio McCalebb running. The Tigers face another road test at Arkansas this weekend after disposing of Tennessee last Saturday in their first road game of the season.
  • The Tigers made it on to all but two ballots in the Associated Press poll. It's hard to justify not having them on there at this point. Poll maverick Doug Lesmerises of the Cleveland Plain Dealer has Auburn ranked the highest at No. 7.
  • New bowl projections for ESPN.com. Mark Schlabach has Auburn in the Cotton Bowl against Oklahoma (that would be a fun game), while Bruce Feldman is sticking with the Tigers in the Music City Bowl against Georgia Tech.
  • Alabama won big against Kentucky but left the Bluegrass State angry about its performance, writes Jeffrey McMurray of the Associated Press.
  • Jevan Snead threw three picks against Vanderbilt. Ole Miss will need him to do better than that if it's going to move forward, writes Geoff Calkins of the Memphis Commercial Appeal.
  • T. Boone Pickens is a rich man who enjoys everything about Oklahoma State football. Jenni Carlson of the Oklahoman has the story here.
