Auburn was able to play Colorado very tough in their last game, but their defense couldn’t get enough stops for them to win. Auburn’s offense has been good, with Canty looking like one of the best players in the SEC so far. Auburn’s defense hasn’t been good, giving up over 80 points per game, and they will have to focus on that if they want to have success this year. Auburn did a lot of things right in their last game and I think they will continue to build on that and get the victory in this one.
