The Auburn Tigers have participated in college athletics since 1892, and the school is currently a member of the Southeastern Conference (SEC). It is considered to have one of the best football programs in the nation. Auburn is also competitive in basketball, softball, and golf. The Tigers won their first of five national titles in football in 1913.
Their most recent national title (2010) was their first undisputed championship and came in the same year that quarterback Cam Newton won the Heisman Trophy.
It’s worth noting that the trophy was named after the man who coached the team from 1895 to 1899, John Heisman, who is still widely considered to be one of the greatest coaches in football history. Legendary professional baseball and football player Bo Jackson also attended the University of Auburn.

You can watch some games on CBS and ABC — depending upon where you live. This is because they broadcast a signal over the air that can be picked up by an antenna.
