Hugh Freeze and the Auburn Tigers just lost an ugly, ugly game to New Mexico State, 31-10.

It just started, but this is by far the worst loss of Freeze’s tenure with the Tigers. Auburn looked lost offensively and were completely dominated in time of possession. New Mexico State had the ball for nearly 40 minutes of game time.

Freeze told reporters postgame that he hopes the loss sticks with the Tigers for a while. He hopes that it sits in their stomachs and makes them sick.

Freeze continued lamenting the Tigers’ ugly loss, saying it was a disservice to Auburn University to play as they did Saturday night.

This loss won’t go against Auburn’s conference record (obviously), but it hurts heavily from a momentum standpoint. The Tigers face off against No. 8 Alabama in the final game of the regular season.

Anything can happen in the Iron Bowl, folks.
