AUBURN, Ala--Both Mizzou and Auburn were on the practice fields Wednesday in preparation for Saturday's SEC championship game in Atlanta.

These two teams are almost mirror images of each other.

Both staged massive turnarounds from last season.   

Both feature dual threat quarterbacks and a strong running game.

Both are Tigers and both coaches wear visors.

Auburn will be coming into the game off a very emotional Iron Bowl victory over arch rival Alabama.

Chris Davis' 108 yard kick six touchdown run won the game for
the Tigers 34-28.

The players say they can move past that win and focus on Mizzou.

"Anytime that a team can go through the SEC conference.  And win the SEC championship it's big time.  It's something that is monumental," said Auburn defensive lineman Nosa Eguae.  "It means a lot.  We're just worrying about Missouri.  We're worrying about getting better every day."

"That's our big challenge as a team," said Auburn coach Gus Malzahn.  "It was a very emotional win.  It was a very physcial game.  But we have to put it behind us. We have to put it behind us and put all our attention on Missouri.  You're talking about a top five team.  And a chance to win the SEC championship." 

KOLR 10 is the only place you can see this game, kickoff at 3:00 p.m. Saturday from the Georiga Dome in Atlanta.
