Really, what’s not to like?
When it comes to predicting a game between one team that can both beat Missouri 34-0 and lose to Florida 38-20 in a matter of weeks and a second that’s basically college football Loki, your coinflip is as good as mine. The one thing that does seem certain is plenty of points — the average final score for these teams’ combined last six games is Winner 44, Loser 31, and that’s with decided non-offensive juggernauts like Ole Miss, Florida and Kentucky involved. This game, on the other hand, involves Todd Gurley and Hutson Mason facing the Auburn defense at home and Nick Marshall and Cameron Artis-Payne facing the same defense that allowed 418 rushing yards to Florida. Don’t expect punts.
I’m still having a hard time imagining how last team with the ball doesn’t win.
By the way, Jerry’s predicting a total of 86 points. I can’t say he’s crazy.
