Comments

Old rivals Auburn and Tennessee meet at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Auburn definitely has more momentum going than Tennessee which is riding a 4-game losing streak. I think Auburn has far superior quarterback play and defensively the two teams are about equal. Auburn should win this one by at least 10 points. However, back in 2018 the Vols upset the Tigers so you never know. Maybe Tennessee quarterback Jarrett Guarantano will get going again.
