Last season under first-year head coach Gus Malzahn, the Auburn Tigers completed one of the greatest turnarounds in college football history when, after going 3-9 in 2012, they went 11-1 in the 2013 regular season plus won the SEC Championship in one of the more thrilling outings of the season against the Missouri Tigers.
While they were not able to complete the turnaround with a national championship, losing to Florida State in the BCS National Championship Game, they were still crowned kings of the mighty SEC, and Tuesday Malzahn revealed the rings that the players will be given to commemorate that accomplishment.

The players will be presented with the jewelry at the spring game on Saturday, and there might not be a group of players more deserving after what they did last season.
This season, with a good amount of players coming back including QB Nick Marshall, the Tigers will seek to finish what they started last year by trying to add a national title ring to this collection.
