In today's edition of Auburn Tigers news, the Auburn Board of Trustees is set to vote on north end zone upgrades in February, and Auburn basketball is still a 3-seed in ESPN bracketology

Earlier this week, Auburn Athletics Director John Cohen spoke with the media about the north end zone of Jordan-Hare Stadium. For many years there has been hope that the north end zone, which features an antique scoreboard and no video board, will get an upgrade.

Cohen has confirmed that it is something Auburn is looking in to, and that the goal would be to provide more premium opportunities in the stadium while also upgrading the outdated scoreboard. Following Cohen's updates, it has been announced that the Board of Trustees will vote to approve renovations to the north end zone at the upcoming February meeting.

According to Auburn Undercover, the renovations will primarily focus on "new, modern videoboard to improve the fan experience."

The Tigers endured a heartbreaking loss to rival Alabama earlier this week, racing back from a 14-point deficit but ultimately losing 79-75. It was Auburn basketball's first loss in almost two months and breaks the team's 11-game winning streak since losing to App State on December 3.

Despite the loss, the Tigers are still projected to be a major contender in the NCAA tournament in March. ESPN's Joe Lunardi updated his latest bracketology predictions on the morning of January 26, and Auburn basketball is still slated as a 3-seed in the tournament.

In Lunardi's bracket, the Tigers would be a 3-seed in the Midwest Region, and would take on #14 Morehead State in the Memphis Subregion. Auburn would go on to play the winner of the contest between #6 San Diego State and #11 Oregon.

With plenty of SEC games left and plenty of time before March Madness, Bruce Pearl's squad still has every opportunity to improve.
