And now it gets to face one of the nastiest defenses in the country.||Offense||We can’t take much from Alabama’s game last week since it was against Georgia Southern. But we already know this team can run and pass; it just needs to avoid costly turnovers.|
|Auburn’s defense has not been good by any stretch, but optimists could look at the 12 points it gave up to LSU and hope—hope—for a similar performance against ’Bama.||Defense||Johnny Football and the Aggies may have made the Tide defense looks mortal, but that doesn’t mean this unit is not elite.
