Once again, Auburn has a strong slate of games ahead of them and with that, means matchups against some of the country’s top players
Being in the SEC, and specifically the SEC West, Auburn football is stuck with a tough schedule year in and year out.
Every season, the team has to play the likes of Alabama, Georgia and LSU and that doesn’t even count the tough out of conference battles the team has scheduled for themselves in the past. 2020 will be no different as, in addition to those aforementioned teams, Auburn also has to play an up and coming UNC squad as well as conference opponents Texas A&M, Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Kentucky.
Playing against the top talent in the country is just part of playing in the SEC and while iron sharpens iron, the Tigers will face no shortage of bonafide stars in the upcoming season.
Many of these teams have multiple stars but let’s take a look at the best player on each team.
EDIT: It appears that the ACC is moving towards playing only conference games in 2020 which would take the week 2 game against UNC off the table.
The SEC may follow suit which would knock four games off Auburn’s schedule. I will be writing slides for them regardless.
