AUBURN, Ala. — Before Auburn turns its complete focus to No. 1 Alabama and the Iron Bowl, the Tigers first must get through senior day and Alabama A&M.
The Tigers have been banged up over the last few weeks, but the game against the Southwestern Athletic Conference team will give injures players a few extra days to rest up.
Coach Gus Malzahn announced Jeremy Johnson the starter for Saturday’s game, in which Kamryn Pettway, Sean White, Stanton Truitt and a list of other players won’t play.
Auburn will dominate Alabama A&M from the opening kickoff.
Here are five Friday predictions:
1. Will Jeremy Johnson be the only quarterback to play?
No, John Franklin III has been the backup all season and will play at times in order to prepare for Alabama.
2. Who will take most of the carries at running back?
Kam Martin and Rudy Ford.
3. Can Carl Lawson tie Nick Fairley’s single-season sack record?
Lawson is just 2.5 sacks from doing so, but if Auburn takes a big lead early, the junior might not have enough time.
4. Which receiver tops the stat sheet?
Senior Tony Stevens.
5. Does Auburn win?
