Florida Gators: A Look Ahead to the Auburn Tigers
This game between the Florida Gators and Auburn Tigers could be a preview of the SEC Championship game. Well at least to the two fan bases. Both teams come into this game undefeated. This is the homecoming game for the Florida Gators. The Auburn Tigers can’t be more excited than to be the Gators’ homecoming opponent. This begins a tough stretch for the Gators who will play the Auburn Tigers, then travel to Louisiana to play the LSU Tigers. After those two games, they play the South Carolina Gamecocks and make their annual trip to Jacksonville to play the Georgia Bulldogs. The Auburn Tigers will get their first bye week after they play the Gators. Both teams know that the other is good. The Gators are second in the nation in sacks. The Tigers have a complex style offense that the Gators are ready for. Let’s look ahead.
The Tigers have already played five games. In which they have won all of them. The biggest one coming two weeks ago. In College Station, Texas they defeated the Texas AM Aggies. The Aggies are considered a team that could make a run at Alabama. The Tigers, of course, will have that chance on Thanksgiving weekend in the annual Iron Bowl. The Tigers could knock off another highly talented team in the conference. The Gators are making a run at the Georgia Bulldogs for the right to represent the SEC East. Many had head coach Gus Malzahn on the hot seat when the season started. If the Tigers beat the Gators on Saturday unless an absolute collapse his job is safe. They have that team that is very capable of achieving that task. Bo Nix Auburn quarterback was recruited by the Gators, but he chose the Tigers instead.
Like I said above this starts a daunting part of their schedule. This will be a very tough homecoming opponent. The Gators, of course, coming off a lopsided win over the Towson Tigers last week. Many consider them a cupcake and thought the Gators may overlook them for the Auburn Tigers. Many Gators fans said that one aspect that needs to get better is the offensive line. They, of course, we are protecting Kyle Trask. Trask has looked good since replacing Feleipe Franks. The Gators need to be established the run game to help Trask. Auburn has not allowed more than 23 points in their five games. The Gators’ biggest win came against the Kentucky Wildcats in a close game. They also had a close game in the season opener against the Miami Hurricanes. However, this will be a true test for the Gators as a whole team.
This is one of the games that are must watch this weekend. For Gators and Tigers fans this a big game for both teams. Look for both teams to come out with their best. It will be a close game that might come down to a field goal. Just look for a classic SEC game on Saturday afternoon.
