Penn Quakers vs Auburn Tigers prediction

The Auburn Tigers have the talent to blow the doors off, but this could be a look ahead spot with their SEC schedule on deck. The Penn Quakers are an experienced team that played games against Kencukty and Houston, and they have a win over a ranked Villanova team. Penn is battle tested and a well above average offensive side that’s actually 14th in 3-point shooting percentage. Lot of points for a team that can already score. I’ll take a shot with Penn.
