The talk all around the sports world is that Auburn can not go undefeated in college football because of the schedule they face in 2014. Somewhere down the line, the Tigers are going to slip up and let one get passed them. Many predict the game in Oxford, MS to be that game.
This will once again be a game that Ole Miss blows out of proportion. It might even be another "uniform" night like the horrid Gray jersey worn in 2010. How did that work out?
Once again Auburn will return to Oxford with an experienced offensive line, and running backs. The big difference will be at QB. Nick Marshall will be more than a seasoned veteran when this game is played, and Auburn will not be just starting to believe in themselves. This a truly a different Auburn team at this point than any Ole Miss squad has seen, maybe ever.
Last season Robenson Therezie had his breakout performance vs. Ole Miss. This is also the game we learned that Carl Lawson had an unusual sack
dance where he skips back to the sideline after making a sack.
Turn the page, and this Ole Miss team is no slouch either. The heralded QB Bo Wallace returns for his Senior season, and Ole Miss returns all but one player from a two deep offensive line.
The Rebels lose four members of defensive front rotation. Add to that the losses of a linebacker and two DB's means that Ole Miss may not be as salty on defense this coming fall.
Auburn's defense won't be able to keep Ole Miss from moving the ball some, and scoring. Look for the Tigers to be good enough on defense to create enough havoc to cause some broken hearts around the Ole Miss faithful. Ole Miss will not be able to match Auburn score for score.
