Tigers streaking into SEC play

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Auburn Tigers are rolling into this weekend's Southeastern Conference opener.

The Tigers have won seven games in a row for the longest streak of Jeff Lebo's coaching tenure. They visit South Carolina on Saturday.

Lebo said the confidence built with winning can help. He pointed to a Gamecocks team that built confidence after several embarrassing losses and went on to win the SEC title 12 years ago when he was a South Carolina assistant.

Lebo's previous four Auburn teams had not strung together more than five wins.
