Auburn (1-0) vs Alabama State (1-0) Game Preview
Why Alabama State Will Win
The Hornets have the experience from the FCS spring session, going 3-3 – or 2-3 with a forfeit – with a decent offense and enough of a defense to hold on and make most games close.
And now they’re unbeaten in 2021 with an overtime win over the Golden Bears of Miles College.
Auburn will be using this as a light scrimmage, but they’ll be well focused on the trip to Penn State next week and won’t exactly be sweating this. QB Ryan Nettles is a veteran who can at least hit a few passes, and …
Why Auburn Will Win
Auburn will be able to get to the backups as soon as possible.
If the 60-10 win over Akron was the warm-up, this is a preseason game to play around with the depth, get some live action to solidify a few positions, and get TJ Finley in there after Bo Nix hit 20-of-22 passes against the Zips.
Everything worked just fine in the first game under new head coach Bryan Harsin with over 600 yards of total offense and no points allowed by the D until the fourth quarter.
What’s Going To Happen
Blink and this will be over.
The Tigers will get a few drives in to play around with the playbook a bit, and then everyone sits to get ready for what’s next. Don’t expect anything funky – there’s no need to give Penn State anything to see.
