College basketball: Florida-Auburn preview

No. 7 Florida at Auburn

When/where: 4; Auburn (Ala.) Arena

TV/radio: Ch. 38; 1250-AM

Records: Florida 14-2, 3-0 SEC; Auburn 8-6, 0-3

Notable: The Gators are trying to open the SEC season with four consecutive victories for consecutive seasons. Florida has won five in a row over Auburn and 15 of the past 16. The Tigers have had early success at home (8-2) but are winless in the conference. This is the first home-and-home regular-season series between the schools since 1991, before league expansion to 12 teams. The Gators have been winning with defense. Florida is 10th nationally in scoring defense, allowing 59.6 points per game, fewest in the SEC.
