Malzahn proud of A&M win, ready to move on

AUBURN, Ala. -

Coming off arguably the program's biggest win since the 2010 BCS National Championship game, Gus Malzahn and the Auburn Tigers were back to work, preparing for Florida Atlanta on Tuesday.

After Sunday's practice, a couple Tigers mentioned "winning it all"—repeating as national champs—as a goal. Tuesday, Malzahn told everyone to, effectively, pump the brakes.

"I'm happy with where we're at, but we've not arrived," he said. "We're going to take it one game at a time. We need to keep improving. There are a lot of ups and downs. That's our challenge. We have to keep rolling, take it one game at a time and stay focused."

Auburn has shot up to no. 11 in the latest Associated Press poll, the team's highest ranking since that magical 2010 season. Excitement has spread throughout the city of Auburn as well, evidenced by the raucous welcome the team received when it returned to the athletic complex at nearly midnight Sunday morning.

"That was a special thing," Malzahn said. "When we got to the airport, there was a crowd, then when we got back here there was a huge crowd. That was a special deal. Saturday, we enjoyed it, and I told our players and coaches, they've worked hard, let's enjoy it. But once Sunday got here, that's behind us, and we have to get back to doing what got us here."

Auburn (6-1, 3-1) hosts Florida Atlantic Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. CT.
