(Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty Images)Fresh off a bye following a loss to Florida, the Auburn Tigers heads to Razorback Stadium for an SEC showdown with the Arkansas Razorbacks.Auburn started the season ranked No. 16 in the nation, but climbed as high as No. 7 thanks to huge wins over Oregon, Texas A&M and Mississippi State. But a loss to Florida humbled the Tigers and breakout quarterback Bo Nix, and they spent the last week licking their wounds from the 24-13 loss.Arkansas has given Texas A&M and Kentucky scares in the past few weeks, but lost both of those games and are now 2-4 overall. The Razorbacks really have yet to take any steps forward under head coach Chad Morris. The second-year coach is 0-11 against SEC foes and 4-14 overall since joining the program last year.But if there’s one thing that South Carolina’s win over Georgia taught us last week, it’s that you can never take an SEC team for granted. Nevertheless, the Razorbacks will still be underdogs by nearly three touchdowns on Saturday.
TORONTO — Industrial equipment company Toromont Industries Ltd. has a friendly deal to buy the Quebec-based Hewitt Group for a combination of cash and shares worth about $1.02 billion.The transaction will combine two of Canada’s largest heavy equipment distributors and expand Toromont’s network of Caterpillar dealerships.Toronto-based Toromont says the acquisition of Hewitt, a private company based in the Montreal-area community of Pointe Claire, Que., will add 45 branches and 2,000 employees in Quebec and the Maritimes.That will bring Toromont’s total number of Caterpillar dealerships to 120, located in Canada’s seven eastern provinces and the northern territory of Nunavut.Toromont rose 12 per cent to US$50.46 at 11:15 a.m. in Toronto, heading for the steepest gain in 30 years. The stock earlier touched US$50.95, the highest price since at least 1983 when Bloomberg records begin.Toromont chief executive Scott Medhurst is expected to provide additional details during a conference call with analysts this morning.Hewitt chief executive Jim Hewitt says the sale of the family-owned business founded by his father makes sense given the trend towards consolidation in the sectors where the company operates.“The decision to sell the business founded 65 years ago by my father has not been an easy one, but is the outcome of much reflection on the part of my son David and me,” Jim Hewitt said in a statement issued at the same time as Toromont’s announcement.With file from Bloomberg
