Auburn Will Score 28+ Points, And Win

And finally, our response to the prediction that Auburn will struggle to score even double-digit points against the Rebels:

Yes, Ole Miss has held all opponents to 20 points or fewer (and Texas A&M only hit 20 because they scored a touchdown on the game’s final play). Yes, the Rebels have held opponents to 10.5 points per game, and the defense has actually held them to just 9.4. But this is Auburn we’re talking about.

  • Gus Malzahn has produced two of the four most prolific offenses in the history of the Southeastern Conference. The Tigers gained 7,018 yards (501.3 yards per game) in 2013 while Malzahn was the head coach and 6,989 yards (499.2) in 2010 with Malzahn serving as offensive coordinator. Thus far, Auburn has averaged 496.9 yards per game through the first seven contests of the 2014 season , which means hey’re on pace for 6,459.7 yards in 13 games this season and 6,956.6 in 14 games.

    In short, this year’s edition is on par with two of the greatest offenses in SEC history.

    Finally, the Tigers have never been held under 20 points with Malzahn as the head coach, and they’ve only been held below 30 points three times in 21 games. I don’t care if Auburn is playing the Ole Miss Rebels this week or the New York Giants, I think the Tigers will score 28 points and win.
