In today's edition of Auburn Tigers news, five former Auburn football players have been invited to participate in the NFL Combine and Auburn basketball prepares to take on South Carolina

With the Super Bowl in the rearview mirror, the NFL Draft is right around the corner. First, however, NFL hopefuls will spend a week showing off their skills to NFL personnel at the combine. The NFL Combine will be held from February 26 to March 3 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Five former Auburn football players have been invited to the combine: defensive backs Jaylin Simpson, Nehemiah Pritchett, and DJ James, in addition to defensive linemen Marcus Harris and Justin Rogers. The full list of invitees can be viewed here.

Last year, Auburn sent six players to the NFL combine in Anders Carlson, Colby Wooden, Eku Leota, Owen Pappoe, Tank Bigsby, and Derick Hall. All were drafted but Leota, who later signed with the Carolina Panthers.

Tomorrow night, Neville Arena will play host to a big ranked matchup on the Plains. No. 11 South Carolina will face off against No. 13 Auburn in front of the Jungle this week as the Tigers look to bounce back from an embarrassing loss to Florida over the weekend.

The Gamecocks arrive on the Plains with a 21-3 record on the season and have gone 9-2 in conference play with losses to Alabama and Georgia in early January. Will the Tigers show up and maintain their win streak at home or will it be a repeat performance of Saturday's slump? With South Carolina currently leading the SEC in rankings, the outcome of the game will impact the race for the SEC title.

South Carolina and Auburn will tip off from Neville Arena tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. central time on the SEC network.
