Auburn had a lot of questions answered in their opening game of the season. They’ll get set to take another step forward when they welcome in the Jacksonville State Gamecocks to Auburn on Saturday.
Auburn staved off a late rush from the Louisville Cardinals as they got a quality win in Week 1 31-24.
Jacksonville State grabbed a close victory against Chattanooga 23-20 in their opener and will look to try and stay relevant in their contest here in Week 2 against a much tougher opponent.
Kick off is set for noon inside Jordan Hare Stadium.
The Gamecocks used their bread and butter in their Week 1 victory over Chattanooga.
Jacksonville State dominated the time of possession and used their running attack to rack up 298 yards in a 23-20 win.
RB Troymaine Pope rushed for 173 yards on just 15 carries to lead the way for the Gamecocks.
Things haven’t been easy for the Gamecocks when they step their competition level up in recent years. Last year, Jacksonville State traveled to Michigan State and really were dominated in every aspect of the game as they dropped a 45-7 decision.
Still, Jacksonville State has been one of the top FCS teams for quite some time. They’ve ranked in the Top 10 for 16 straight weeks.
The Tigers had a lot of questions to deal with when coming into this season. However for the #7 team in the country, those were answered following their Week 1 31-24 victory.
However, one that remains is whether or not QB Jeremy Johnson can develop to be like Nick Marshall. Marshall left following the end of the 2014 season and the Tigers gave the QB duties to Johnson.
Johnson threw for 3 interceptions and showed a lot of nerves in the season opener. Johnson had a touchdown to his name as well in the Tigers’ victory.
With the unanswered questions about Johnson, the pressure lies now on RB Peyton Barber. He was given the majority of the carries on Saturday as Roc Thomas and Jovon Robinson both sustained injuries and were out of the game.
Barber rushed for 115 yards-95 in the 2nd half- and really gave the Tigers a giant push as they held off the Louisville late rush.
