The Auburn Tigers visit the Kansas State Wildcats in a battle of undefeated conference title contenders. The Tigers are trying to maintain their undefeated record as they race towards the fateful Iron Bowl with Alabama. The Wildcats are trying to prove they can keep pace with the elite Big XII teams like Oklahoma, Baylor and Oklahoma State.
Auburn is the defending SEC Champion and needs to keep pace with Texas A&M, LSU, Ole Miss and of course their nemesis Alabama. A loss to Kansas State would all but guarantee the end of the Tigers National Championship hopes.
Kansas State was barely able to slip past the Iowa State Cyclones two weeks ago, and has a lot to prove with its great rushing attack against Auburn’s great rushing defense.
Prediction: Auburn – This will likely be a very competitive game early, but Auburn has the ability to win a war of attrition in the trenches that Kansas State just can’t compete with for 60 minutes.
