This is probably the best game to watch on TV of any for Saturday. Hats off to these two teams for agreeing to play each this early. Surely they’ll be well-compensated for their troubles. Whichever team wins this will move up several places in the rankings and be on the right track. The loser can pretty must kiss goodbye any hope of making the College Football Playoff but then again, based on recent history, if Auburn won the SEC Championship game they’d probably get in. Auburn should be able to nip Oregon here. They are just a little bit better and come from a more powerful conference. The only worry is that the Tigers will be starting a true freshman quarterback, Bo Nix. He must be pretty special to be able to start as a freshman.
