AUBURN, ALA. (EETV) – The Auburn Basketball team continues to set program records under the leadership of Bruce Pearl.
With the Tigers coming in at No. 15 in this week’s AP Poll, the team set a program record with 31 consecutive weeks being ranked in the poll dating all the way back to the 2021-22 preseason poll.
In those 31 weeks, Auburn spent three of them at No. 1 marking the first time the Tigers were ranked first in the poll in program history. In addition to those weeks spent at No.1, the team spent eight more weeks ranked inside the top 10.
The team breaks the record set by the Tigers between the midway point of the 1998-99 season through the first 17 weeks of the 1999-00 season, a 447-day span.
Pearl and company set the record in convincing fashion with back-to-back SEC road wins, each with a margin of victory in double digits. The last time that happened to an Auburn team occurred in 1967.
The Tigers will look to extend the record this week when they host Texas A&M on Wednesday before traveling to Morgantown, West Virginia to take on the mountaineers in the Big 12/SEC Challenge.
