2013 Auburn Tigers
College Football Preview
Schedule - Odds
Auburn found themselves in a hole from the start last year and could once again be in that same situation in 2013. They are returning 15 starters which is good, but that team only had three wins and zero in SEC play. At head coach, Gene Chizik is gone with former offensive coordinator Guz Malzahn taking his place.
Wanna make a big score? If you have reason to believe Auburn will somehow shock the world and win the BCS Title this year, open an account at Sportsbook.ag, the largest sportsbook in the world and pluck down a wager on the Tigers. Their current odds to win the BCS Title are a whopping 500 to 1!
Their quarterback situation is in the same spot it was last year, undecided. The competition will likely be back-and-forth, much as it was last year. Neither Kiehl Frazier nor Jonathan Wallace has separated from the other one which isn't a good thing. The two combined for six touchdowns and 12 interceptions last year. The positive for this offense is in the running game where Tre Mason (1,002 yards, eight TDs) will be returning along with four of the offensive lineman. The Tigers will have a new no-huddle, hurry-up offense which usually benefits the passing game, but they'll have to lean on their running game to be successful.

Auburn's defense showed some strength last season before puttering out and they return nine starters from that unit. They started the year by allowing 26 points to Clemson, 12 to LSU and 17 to Vanderbilt to name a few quality performances. However, at the end of the year against the powerhouses, they gave up 50 points per game to Texas A&M, Georgia and Alabama. The Tigers retain most of their secondary which is going to help immensely as they will be running a 4-2-5 on defense. Still, the line is going to have to improve if this team wants to compete.

It's nice that Auburn only has four true road games this season, but that doesn't mean it's going to be easy to improve their record. Their first two non-conference games are a tad deceiving as Washington State will likely be improved in their second year under Mike Leach and Arkansas State has reached a bowl game in two straight seasons. The Tigers will get Mississippi State in their first SEC game, a team they lost 28-10 to last year. Their home game with Ole Miss two games later is another one they can turn around after allowing 41 points to the Rebels last year.
Games at Arkansas and Tennessee are both winnable as well, that is if the Tigers can improve at all during the season. If this offense can figure things out, they'll have a decent chance at doubling last year's win total. But again, can you trust Auburn at this point?
