Did you really expect anything less than a shootout between two high-powered offenses?
If you haven’t heard, Auburn’s going through a transition year.
So why are so many Tiger fans critical of new quarterback Nick Marshall?
Just because he and Cam Newton both transferred from JUCO schools, doesn’t mean that he is going to be the same type of player.
It’s going to have to be a complete team effort in Auburn this season ,if they expect to even become bowl-eligible.
The major issue with the Tigers is their lack of depth, especially in the secondary.
They were able to make some key plays towards the end of the game, but they have to prove that they can be reliable early and often.
Tre Mason was able to bounce-back with a kick return touchdown, after a costly fumble earlier in the game, but the running backs were actually the best part of the entire Auburn offense.
Gus Malzahn will take a 31-24 win to start the season, but you have to believe that there will continue to be adjustments throughout the starting lineup.
