The Auburn Tigers will try their luck at the top of the BCS standings when they hit the road against the unranked Mississippi Rebels. After inheriting top honors from Oklahoma following the Sooners’ first loss of the season in Week 8, Auburn will try to become the first team in three weeks to hold on to the No. 1 spot through Sunday.
The Sooners had just recently claimed the top spot, taking over from the Alabama Crimson Tide who held the position since the start of the season. Needless to say, getting the No. 1 ranking in the country might not be as hard as hanging on to it once you have it.
Fortunately for Auburn, although the target on their back may be just as deadly, their competition isn’t. Whereas Oklahoma lost their top bid to No. 11-ranked Missouri, and Alabama gave up theirs following a loss to No. 19-ranked South Carolina, the Tigers’ Week 9 opponent, Ole Miss, has gone just 1-3 in the SEC this season.
Coming off of a hard fought victory over the LSU Tigers, Auburn will look to continue to dominate the running game. In addition to having thrown 13 touchdowns so far this season, quarterback Cameron Newton has run in 14 of his own.
Though Auburn sits at the top of the BCS standings, they place just third in both the AP and USA Today polls, leading many to believe that Oregon and Boise State are the superior clubs. The Tigers will look to silence these critics and prove that their positioning is justified.
There are clearly discrepancies between the BCS standings formula and the criteria from which the AP and USA Today polls are determined, so we need you to settle the difference.
Regardless of which way you look at it, all of the Top 3 teams are in action this weekend, so get off the couch and into the game – at Online sportsbook. Be a player. Bet on who you think has the best program in the nation.
