Lines

Auburn is a 10 point favorite on Saturday with the over/under set at 56. Auburn’s defense has been very stout this season, but that number opened high and still seems high to me. I’ll take the Hogs and the under here.

Weather

Sunny and in the high 50s low 60s all day on the plains of Auburn. 66 degrees at kickoff and no chance of rain for the game.

Notes

Once upon a time a boy named Gus had one very weird season as offensive coordinator for Arkansas football. What has been one of the more interesting coach vs. coach matchups in the SEC for the past few years is happening again this Saturday in Auburn, AL (where Arkansas has had more than a few memorable games in recent history). As our Eric Harris pointed out this week, the Ole Miss matchup last week got all kinds of hype for being a “rematch game” for the Rebels, but last year’s Auburn game was an OT thriller that wasn’t the easiest for Tiger fans to swallow either. The biggest matchup to watch this week will be Auburn’s stellar defensive line versus The Razorback O-line that was much improved against Ole Miss last week. While Sean White has been the clear starter for most of the season, I expect to see more change-ups with (Netflix’s Last Chance U Star) John Franklin III as a run-option threat against the questionable Razorback linebacker corps. If Arkansas can force Auburn to throw while showing the same ability to run as last week The Razorbacks will have an excellent chance to leave Auburn with a victory. I’ll take The Hogs in a close one this week 31-28.

One last thing, remember, Gus likes his offense to go fast and really isn’t afraid to make claims about a team faking an injury to slow down an offense.
