Notebook: AU upset-minded; Davis returns

Auburn will roll into the Swamp Saturday night as huge underdogs. The latest line has No. 4 Florida, off to a 4-0 start and averaging 49.2 points per game, nearly a three-touchdown favorite over the visiting Tigers (2-2).

In addition, Auburn hasn't won a game at Florida since 1994 when Pat Nix connected with Frank Sanders in the final seconds of a dramatic comeback win.

Since then, UF has outscored AU 143-43 in four wins in Gainesville, and holds a 23-8 series record at home.

But all the numbers don't point to a blowout win for the Gators. Auburn also has a little history on its side.

In the last nine games against Top 10 opponents, the Tigers have won eight, their only loss a 20-17 overtime thriller at LSU in 2005. The Tigers have also won 12 straight in their road whites, which they'll don Saturday for the first time this season.
