We have finally reached week one of the college football season with a full plate of games. The best part of a new season is that every team feels like they can have a good season, and that this is the season where they can reach all their goals.
One of the games to take place in week one takes place at Jordon-Hare Stadium in Aubrun, Alabama. The Georgia Southern Eagles come to town to take on the Auburn Tigers.
This is the first meeting between the two teams in recent history.
Georgia Southern Eagles
The triple option is back! After the Georgia Southern Eagles went away from the triple option without much success, they have decided to go back to it.
New offensive coordinator Bryan Cook comes over from Georgia Tech, where they have had great success running the triple option.
Coming into the season they have three guys who can play quarterback so look for that to work itself out through the first couple of weeks.
Behind the quarterback though they have some very good options at the running back position who should really help them carry out the option attack.
On the defensive side they played well at times, but as a whole they struggled. They gave up almost 400 yards per game and 27 points.
Against an Auburn team that knows how to score the defense is really going to have to step up big in this game, or it will be a long night of football.
The Auburn Tigers and their fans have high hopes for this season, and it all starts with a new guy under center this year.
Baylor transfer Jarrett Stidham is going to be the starting quarterback this year, and should be a big upgrade. Last year the Tigers offense had no issue running the back but the passing game left a lot to be desired.
This year Stidham should give them a downfield threat that they didn’t have, and with him as the quarterback the offense should really be opened up more.
On the defensive side of the ball they also should be solid this year. Six of the seven leading tacklers are back from last year and with everyone being a year more experienced, I would expect big things.
In this game the Auburn Tigers just need to play their game. They are the better team and more then anything they can’t get into bad habits.
It’s more then just this game when they play this one, so they need to keep good habits no matter how much they might get up by.

The Tigers led by Stidham at quarterback will air the ball out early and often. The Georgia Southern defense won’t step up in this game.
