Auburn Will Have Zero Turnovers

This one will be tough. The Auburn football team has only survived one game this season without turning the ball over (Louisiana Tech). But, if not for a Quan Bray fumble on a punt return last week, the Tigers would not have had a turnover against South Carolina either.

Ole Miss leads the nation with 17 interceptions and ranks second in the nation with 24 takeaways. However, Nick Marshall has only thrown three picks this year, and two came on balls that were batted at the line of scrimmage. Marshall is coming off of his most efficient game of the year and he completed 12 of 14 passes for 139 yards and a touchdown last week against the Gamecocks.

Also, an Auburn running back hasn’t lost a fumble since Roc Thomas did it on the last offensive play against San Jose State in Week 2. The Tigers have lost two fumbles on special teams, one by D’haquille Williams after a catch and one by Marshall, but Cameron Artis-Payne, Corey Grant and company have been especially sure handed over the last two months.

Expect that trend to continue, and for Marshall to take care of the football like he did last week.
