Auburn wins 45-17. I want to see offensive sparks and defensive stops. And let's swat that injury bug, huh? WDE.
Missouri is a tough team that is coming off of two clean sheets. Their back line is disciplined, and they have a solid keeper. However, they've struggled scoring goals against teams that actually might surrender them. Auburn does not. Auburn 1-0 (OT).
Interpret as you see fit.
Auburn will end up winning this one by a pretty big score, but it might not be as large as the panicky folks would like. For one, Jacksonville State is a very good FCS team. For another, I really think Auburn is going to use this game as a tune-up to work on finding exactly what works best for Jeremy Johnson. I think the defense is going to just go out and wreck fools like we've been wanting to see for a while, but the offense may still struggle at times. If that happens, don't worry. It's just ironing things out as we prepare for the heart of the schedule.
Final will be somewhere in the neighborhood of Auburn 49, Jacksonville State 10.
