Auburn football: Tigers' NCAA Football 14 ratings ... surprisingly good

EA Sports seems to have confidence the Gus Bus will be headed into the right direction.

All the team ratings for NCAA Football 14 have been released, and Auburn's numbers are probably better than most fans were expecting. The Tigers rates out at 88 overall, with the offense at 88 and the defense is at 90.

Yes, Auburn's defense is rated 90, higher than the offense. That's not a typo. Here's how the rest of the SEC stacks up:

Team Overall Offense Defense
Alabama 99 99 99
LSU 93 93 92
Texas A&M 91 95 88
Georgia 91 95 88
South Carolina 90 88 90
Florida 90 90 92
Ole Miss 90 91 88
Auburn 88 88 90
Arkansas 88 88 87
Mississippi State 88 90 85
Missouri 88 90 87
Tennessee 86 84 88
Kentucky 84 84 83
Vanderbilt 83 84 82

Honestly, there are some pretty interesting -- maybe, curious -- numbers on that list. Is Auburn's defense really going to better than its offense, just as good as South Carolina's and tied for third best in the SEC? We'll have what the folks at EA Sports are having.
