Why Samford Will Win

The Bulldog offense is a whole lot of fun.

Former USF quarterback Chris Oladokun is at the helm of a terrific passing attack that pushes the ball deep, has enough receiving weapons to spread it around, and can keep on pressing.

There’s a running game – Oladokun can take off, and he’s great around the goal line – but the offense is at its best when it’s bombing away. The team doesn’t make a whole slew of mistakes, there’s a good pace and tempo to the attack, and it’ll keep the chains moving.

However …

“Go to the bank!” Today’s top pick of the day just released

Why Auburn Will Win

There’s no Samford defense, especially against the run.

There have been some decent moments, but there’s not enough pressure in the backfield and the better-running FCS teams haven’t had any issues tearing off 250 yards or more.

If they want to, the Tigers can win by blasting away and controlling the clock – Samford doesn’t care about time of possession – but the goal here to get better and more consistent through the air.

Bo Nix had a decent day against Georgia, but there weren’t any big plays. He only averaged 4.9 yards per throw, and with Bama coming up next, this is another chance to tune up and air it out. The Bulldog secondary doesn’t come up with enough takeaways, and it can be bombed on way too easily.

What’s Going To Happen

Auburn beat Samford 31-7 back in 2014, and as a program, it’s been hit-or-miss against the FCS teams on the schedule in terms of ease.

There won’t be any problems this week.

The Tiger offensive line will blast away from the start, Nix will be deadly accurate at moving the chains, and it’ll be on to Alabama by the third quarter.

Samford will score, and Auburn will still want to try a wee bit, but …

This is the tune and rest game for the Tigers.
