#1 Auburn Tigers at Mississippi Rebels

Saturday October 30, 2010 6:00 PM EST

Line: Auburn -7

Somewhat of a shocking line when you think about the #1 ranked team in the country. There is some facts that back up the reasoning behind this though. The Tigers have not won a game on the road this season by more than 3 points.

Stats to consider:

Auburn Tigers:

  • The Tigers are 8-0 with a 5-0 SEC record.
  • They are 2-0 on the road with a 17-14 victory over Mississippi State and a 37-34 victory over Kentucky
  • Points against per game: 23.5 (53rd)
  • Points for per game: 38.6 (11th)
  • Passing yards a game: 183.5 (85th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 303.3 (4th)

Mississippi Rebels:

  • The Rebels are 3-4 on the season with a 1-3 SEC record.
  • They are 2-2 at home after they started out with a terrible 49-48 loss to Jacksonville State.
  • Points against per game: 32 (101st)
  • Points for per game: 31.4 (40th)
  • Passing yards per game: 199.1 (75th)
  • Rushing yards per game: 211.1 (20th)

What to watch for:

  • Both teams rushing attacks rank inside the top 20. Look for both teams to dominate on the ground vs average defenses
  • Auburn Junior QB Cameron Newton leads the ground game for the Tigers with 1,077 yards and 14 TDs. He also has thrown for 1,364 yards with 13 TDs and only 5 Ints. This kid is the real deal and is on Heisman watch without a doubt.
  • Ex Oregon Duck QB Senior Jeremiah Masoli will have to have a great game as he has 400 rushing yards with 3 TDs. He also has thrown for 1,260 yards with 10 TDs and 6 Ints for the Rebels.

This game will be focused on the ground games for both. With football picks, I’ll take the team with the better QB. Auburn QB Cameron Newton has shown that he is one of the best, if not the best QB in the nation. This guy is putting up Heisman like numbers and has his team 8-0. The Rebels have played on the road the last two week vs ranked opponents and have lost by a combined 61-34. That was at Alabama and at Arkansas.
