If you liked Paul Myerberg’s preseason review of Missouri, you won’t be disappointed in what he writes about his No. 40, Auburn. There’s plenty of interest, but this really caught my eye.
Last fall, Auburn went 6-1 in home games and 1-4 in true road games – 2-4 in all non-home games, counting the bowl win over Virginia. This marked the second time in its three years under Chizik that Auburn had won only a single road game during the regular season; in 2009, the Tigers went 1-3 on the road and 6-1 at home.
No Cam makes for a pretty Jekyll and Hyde kind of team, it seems. Which could mean more trouble for the Dawgs on the Plains than we think, given last season’s lopsided win.
If you’re looking for a sunnier preseason look at Auburn, the Orlando Sentinel’s Matt Murschel pegs the Tigers at 16th.
