Chizik says he's confident he can revive Auburn

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn coach Gene Chizik says he feels confident he can turn the football program around.

The Tigers have slipped from a national title team two years ago to 2-8 and winless in the Southeastern Conference after Saturday night's 38-0 shellacking by No. 5 Georgia.

 Chizik said Sunday the way this season has gone "prompts you to really go back and start all over and evaluate" every aspect of the program.

He says that's what he would do. Asked if that means he's confident he can turn the program around, Chizik responded: "That's very accurate."

Auburn hosts FCS Alabama A&M on Saturday before visiting No. 4 Alabama.

 The Tigers have been outscored 101-21 in their past two SEC games against No. 9 Texas A&M and the Bulldogs.
