Auburn-South Carolina Prediction

Last weekend Auburn gave up 40 combined runs in Starkville in a series with Mississippi State. Meanwhile, the South Carolina Gamecocks at Tennessee managed to score just 10 total runs in their series with the Vols. Both these teams have some issues but go with the Gamecocks in Columbia. South Carolina 2 wins, Auburn 1 win.
