No. 15 Auburn and Ole Miss enter the Saturday night matchup heading in opposite directions.
The Tigers head to Oxford on a four-game winning streak. The Rebels will try to snap a two-game losing streak.
The outcome Saturday could set the tone for how both teams fare during the remainder of the season.
Here is what a few national media outlets are saying about the SEC West contest:
- For Ole Miss to have success against Auburn’s offense, it has to slow the Tigers’ rushing attack. However, that task becomes more difficult with Kerryon Johnson set to return from injury, writes Greg Ostendorf of ESPN.
- Most experts think Auburn will be victorious Saturday night, and from a statistical standpoint, it is easy to see why. Stats LLC gives a good breakdown of the matchup.
- Although Auburn’s rushing attack has been impressive lately, the Tigers’ best asset is their dominant defense, writes Ostendorf.
