Auburn Tigers at Ole Miss Rebels

Saturday, October 20 at 11:00am CT; Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford, MS

TV: ESPN; Line: Auburn -3.5; Over/Under: 62.5

Jeff Shull

Auburn needs this game in the biggest way and luckily for them, Ole Miss’ defense is the perfect unit to get their struggling offense back on track. Ole Miss will be able to put up some points on Auburn, but the Tigers defense won’t have bad games two weeks in a row.

Gus Malzahn and his Auburn Tigers need this one or the season could really get away. The offense finally gets going and out scores Ole Miss in a wild one.

Auburn is coming off back-to-back loses to what I believe were inferior opponents. Although Ole Miss has one of the best receiving corps in the country, I believe that Auburn has way more talent on their roster. This is going to be a close game. I think Auburn wins, but Ole Miss will cover.

From a fringe playoff contender to unranked with a 1-3 conference record. This isn’t the season anybody thought Auburn would have, and it’s only going to get worse this weekend. Ole Miss’ high powered offense should be firing on all cylinders at home. With Jarrett Stidham struggling and the defense not being able to hold even Tennessee to less than 30 points, the Rebels top the Tigers.
