We're all confident, and that scares the crap out of me.
#3 rushing team in the country vs the #113 rushing defense? The old adage of run the ball and stop the run and you'll win plays in Auburn's favor.
I think Kelly will make some noise in this one, but it won't be nearly enough.

I want to find a reason Auburn doesn't run away in the second half just because I've done it with the last two picks. Kelly will make plays. Engram is one of the best players in college football. This won't be easy, but Auburn is the better team right now.

Should be that all night, even if we're down a score.
But really, Lawson is going to tear up their freshman LT. If they double him up, Mon is going to eat. Their run game is pretty bad, so if we can get to Chad Kelly (we should), they should be pretty limited. I think the only way they win is if they come out guns blazing, put up some early points, and force Auburn to pass. Honestly, though, 10 passes in the first half is probably too many even if we're down. No offense to Sean, he's been exactly what we needed, but the offense this year is built on the run.
I think it's a crazy first half, maybe 21-21, but Auburn grinds away in the second half and wins 38-24.
