(Photo by Mike Zarrilli/Getty Images)The Auburn Tigers were hardly expected to walk into Tuscaloosa and beat the Crimson Tide on the road, but to lose 52-21 in a blowout may have taken some of the wind out of their sails.Unfortunately, with a 7-5 record on the season, they’re not going to be playing in one of the truly special bowl games like the Peach Bowl or Sugar Bowl.Luckily for the Tigers, they secured their spot in a bowl game weeks ago and now have plenty of options.The Birmingham Bowl, Texas Bowl, Music City Bowl, Independence Bowl, Belk Bowl, Liberty Bowl, Gator Bowl, and Outback Bowl are all on the table for SEC teams.CBS Sports analyst Jerry Palm thinks that we’ll see Auburn taking on Iowa State in the Academy Sports + Outdoors Texas Bowl.Meanwhile, Eric Single of Sports Illustrated has Auburn slated to play Big Ten title game participant Northwestern in the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl.Finally, College Football News has Auburn taking on Temple in the Birmingham Bowl.The Auburn Tigers are 1-4 in bowl games under current head coach Gus Malzahn.
