Tigers move up one spot in USA TODAY Coaches Poll

The Tigers are slowly clawing back to their original spot in the USA TODAY coaches poll.

After defeating both LSU and South Carolina in its last two games, Auburn was ranked at No. 16 in the USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll on Monday. After a steep drop at the beginning of the year, the Tigers are one rank down from where they were placed in the preseason poll at No. 15.

Auburn is one of three SEC schools ranked in the poll, as No. 25 Arkansas dropped out of the rankings with the newest edition. The team’s next two matches feature a contest against Texas A&M on home court and an out-of-conference game against the West Virginia Mountaineers in Morgantown, West Virginia at the end of the month.
