Charles Barkley confident Auburn will win in Week 1: 'We're gonna kill Kentucky'
On Monday night, ESPN college football broadcasters Rece Davis and Kirk Herbstreit took over ESPN to host an in-game MegaCast.
Various guests joined them as they watched the New Orleans Saints take on the Las Vegas Raiders, including Auburn legend Charles Barkley and Tennessee great Peyton Manning.
Let’s just say Barkley isn’t too worried about Auburn’s Week 1 SEC matchup against Kentucky. This hilarious exchange took place during the second quarter:
“Your Auburn Tigers got a tough match with Kentucky this week,” Herbie said.
“Listen, things are never that bad. We’re gonna kill Kentucky,” Barkley responded. “I’m worried about Georgia the next week. C’mon man, this isn’t basketball. We’re not gonna worry about Kentucky football. Stop it, Herbie!”
“I hope Stoops is watching this interview and getting his troops fired up for that game,” Manning said.
Will Chuck be proven right? We’ll find out on Saturday afternoon when the Tigers host the Wildcats!
