Tennessee-Auburn Prediction

This is a battle of two teams with fairly lofty RPIs at this early point in the conference season. Every team in the SEC has a sparkling record from playing lots of cupcakes. Now starts the real tests. Auburn is one of the tougher places to play in the SEC. They’ve got a all round good team. Their fans are wonderful at clean heckling opposing players. But Tennessee’s pitching has been phenomenal and they can hit too. Prediction: Toss up.
