Auburn gets past Oregon
Despite a 15-point second-half deficit, Auburn was able to rally to best Oregon last week in Arlington for a 27-21 victory. The Tigers were able to cover the 4-point spread in the win while going under the 55-point total.
The Tigers remained solid on defense despite the early deficit against Oregon. Auburn held the Ducks to just 332 total yards and 90 rushing yards. Offensively, Auburn put up 383 total yards and 206 rushing yards in the victory. Freshman quarterback Bo Nix threw for 177 yards and two touchdowns, but was just 13 of 31 passing. He did also rush for 42 yards. JaTarvious Whitlow led the ground game with 110 yards on 24 carries while Jeremiah Dinson led the Auburn defense with 13 tackles, a sack and two tackles for loss.
Tulane handles FIU
The Tulane football team had an impressive opener last Thursday night when it picked up a 42-14 win over Florida International. The Green Wave were a 3-point favorite at home in the game, easily covering. Tule also went under the 58.5-point total.
Tulane was solid on both sides of the football in the win, posting 545 total yards of offense while holding FIU to just 267 total yards and 59 rushing yards. The Green Wave were led by Justin McMillan, who threw for 199 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 51 yards and a score. Darius Bradwell rushed for 90 yards to lead the way while Corey Dauphine had 76 yards rushing and two scores on just three carries. Darnell Mooney led the receivers with four catches for 84 yards and a touchdown.
College Football Betting Trends
Auburn has covered the spread in four straight home games, but 1-7 ATS in their last eight following a win.
The Green Wave are 6-15-1 against the spread in their last 22 games on grass, but 11-5 ATS in their last 16 non-conference games.
Auburn got the big win of the weekend last week, but I don’t think it will lead to a letdown tonight. If anything, the Tigers should feel like they are a legit title contender with that big non-conference win. Now Auburn returns home for its home opener against a Tulane team that is probably feeling good about itself after dominating FIU. The Green Wave are in for a rude awakening tonight against that Auburn speed and look for Bo Nix to improve a great deal with each game.
