WATCH: ESPN color analyst calling Auburn game doesn't know what division Auburn is in
Remember when Auburn was in the SEC East?
Yeah, neither do we.
However, although the Tigers have been in the SEC West since the conference split into two divisions in 1992, that didn’t stop one announcer from botching a trivia question on Saturday.
During ESPN’s broadcast of the Auburn-Texas A&M game in College Station, color analyst Anthony Becht was trying to guess the classic Aflac trivia question:
When was the last time an SEC East team won the SEC Championship?
“I’m just going to go out on a limb … I’m gonna guess Auburn with Cam Newton, maybe?” he said.
That’s certainly “out on a limb.” Auburn did, indeed, win the SEC Championship in 2010 — but it did so representing the SEC West.
Hey, we all make mistakes. It’s safe to say most of us have screwed up a handful of those pesky Aflac trivia questions in our day, too.
Here’s a video of Becht’s blunder, courtesy of Yahoo! Sports’ Dr. Saturday on Twitter:

Also, for what it’s worth, Florida was the last SEC East team to win the title. The Gators beat Alabama 31-20 in the 2008 SEC Championship Game.
