Now, as for the game itself . . .
Mississippi State whipped two non-power-five opponents, then beat down LSU before receiving a beat down of their own from Georgia. Who knows which Bulldogs will show up Saturday?
Auburn is equally—if not more so—mysterious. Jarrett Stidham looked sub-Heismanal against a great defense—when he was also handcuffed by atrociously inept play-calling—and, of course, looked mostly solid against our other opponents.
What we don’t know yet is how he’ll look against an ok-but-not-great defense. Hopefully, the timing for that revelation favors the Tigers. Ok—State may not have an ok defense. But, they have to be better than Missouri.
Auburn is favored over State by 10 points or so. That makes some folks more nervous than others. I’m ok with it. When I think of Auburn blowing games we’re supposed to win, I tend to remember being double-touchdown favorites, not just double-digit favorites.
In fact, I think we will win this game by two touchdowns, or maybe four or five. I’m that confident that once our defense sufficiently smothers them, the Bulldogs will lay down.
Then our offense—after already starting well—will coast to a big day.
Speaking of big days, Daniel Carlson certainly had one last Saturday—big enough to renew his Groza hopes.
WAY EARLY GROZA PREDICTIONS:
1.Matt Gay (UTAH:14/14 FGs, 2/2 50+)
2.Quinn Nordin (MICH:11/13, 2/3 50+)
3. Daniel Carlson (AUB:8/11, 3/4 50+)
