Mason: We're headed to the penthouse

Posted: Updated:
AUBURN, AL - Auburn has had a Cinderella season -- going from 3-9 to 10-1 this season.

"As coach Malzahn says, we started in the outhouse, now we're headed to the penthouse," Auburn running back Tre Mason said.

But for Saturday, all the records go out the window and it comes down to this game, with an SEC Championship Game berth on the line.

"I'm going to have to take some sleeping pills," Auburn defensive end Dee Ford said.  "Try to go to sleep, 'cause I sit up at night thinking about the game. Thinking about big moments."

Auburn has been "fueled by doubt" all season.  But offensive lineman Reese Dismukes has another motivating factor.

"My brother played for Alabama, so I'd like to call him up and laugh in his face," Dismukes said.  "Other than that, it's the Iron Bowl, biggest game you play at Auburn."

"We worked hard for this," Mason said. "We feel like we earned everything we have now, so we're ready to step on the stage and do what we have to do."

The Iron Bowl kicks off at 2:30 p.m. Saturday.
