The season doesn’t begin until September for Auburn and for Auburn fans, it won’t come soon enough. We’ve put up with a lot of garbage, trash talk, and everything else about the hiring of Gene Chizik. Once the coach was hired, all the innovative recruiting tactics which through the spring brought attention to Auburn, will be shelved while Auburn concentrates on the season.
And nothing starts a season off better than a win.
Auburn, implementing an offense that works this season, will still open with fits and starts. We’ll see a good La. Tech team that has, in the past, given us fits and will do so again.
Look for Auburn to score late to put it away.
Score Prediction: Auburn: 24, La. Tech: 13.
Record Prediction: 1-0
