South Carolina got off the goose egg last week with a solid 41-7 win over Vanderbilt. Auburn pulled off a victory over visiting Arkansas. In this game I think Auburn has the better coaching and stronger team. Gus Malzahn is certainly more classy. He wouldn’t be running end around plays on a team that was down 27 in the fourth quarter and missing 50 players due to COVID. Bo Nix seems like a better game manager than Collin Hill for Carolina. Auburn wins this by at least two touchdowns.
