Challenges for Auburn

This is a huge game for Auburn. Lose this one and they drop to 2-2 (0-1 SEC) on the season. Freshman sensation Luther Burden is a weapon the Auburn players must contain. The former 5-star top-ranked nationally recruit already leads the nation in punt return yards averaging 27-yards per return. Mizzou is working Burden more into the offense. He’s rushed for 40 yards and a touchdown and has 10 receptions for 78 yards and another touchdown. Auburn can’t afford to fail at containing Burden.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 11:00 AM CT (12:00 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the ESPN Network.
