Missouri vs. Auburn Football Series History

Auburn leads 2-1

Comments

These two teams are about at the same level. Both have suffered lopsided losses to other power conference teams but have taken care of the cupcake opponents. Missouri might win this game but it’s tough to win at Auburn. Auburn has its backs to the wall and I believe Auburn wins for the Gipper.
