Championships Still in Play For Auburn

Posted: Updated:

After up-setting then-ranked No. 7 Texas A&M last week, Auburn now has its sight set on winning championships.

The SEC and the National Championship are not out of the picture; all this is just one year after a complete program collapse.

Auburn could be favored in every game left on it's schedule with one exception. With so much to look forward to, Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn is not ready to talk about the big picture just yet.

"The only thing we've talked about is this week is Florida Atlantic," Malzahn said. "We ain't talking about anything else or thinking about anything else.

"We're going to take the same approach. That's what got us here so far."

So far, so good.

A No. 11 ranking in the BCS standings could be surprising to people on the outside.

But inside the tight knit family of the football team, they knew they had something special.

"We have a lot of talented guys and that all of us really work hard," Auburn offensive lineman Reese Dismukes said.  "We wanted to be that good. The fact that we've been put in the position where we can do that is awesome."

"We have so much room to get better at our craft," Auburn defensive lineman Nosa Equae said. "Each position, we can see that. If we continue to get better, continue to grow, the skies the limit."

Malzahn said on Tuesday, that it would be nice to build some depth during the Florida Atlantic game because they will need it for the stretch run.  But Auburn will not approach the game that way.
