The Warhawks of LA. Monroe are coming off of a tough loss to Georgia Southern last week. Auburn won the battle of coaches on the hot seat, beating LSU in a tough SEC matchup.
Louisiana Monroe Warhawks
The Warhawks QB play has been steady if not spectacular. Garrett Smith had a good game against Georgia Southern totaling 283 yards through the air with 2 touchdowns.
This week he faces an Auburn defense that shut down LSU’s passing attack last week.
After starting the season with a 100 yard effort in week 1, tail back Ben Luckett has been shut down the last two weeks, not reaching 20 yards on the ground. Wide receiver Marcus Green had 2 catches for 75 yards and a score against Georgia Southern.
If La. Monroe has any shot at pulling the upset he will need to make a couple of key plays down the field and reach the end zone at least twice.
Besides an expected beat down by Oklahoma, where they gave up 59 points, the Warhawks defense has been average. Against Georgia Southern the passing defense was great, but the front seven was gashed for 345 yards on the ground.
Look for an improvement from the special teams unit as a blocked field goal cost them the game last week.
Auburn’s quarterback play has been uneventful the last two weeks. Sean White has not thrown a touchdown or an interception in the last two games. This type of play cannot keep the team in contention for SEC west.
Look for him to toss a couple of scores this week against an over matched Warhawk defense.
Star running back Kerryon Johnson had a great game against the Tigers. He rushed for 93 yards and had 4 catches for 68 yards out of the backfield. Look for him to reach the end zone and have another game with more than 150 total yards.
Wide Receiver Tony Stevens has not found the end zone the last two weeks, but he has been consistent in his play. He has been the main receiving threat for the Auburn offense and I expect Sean White to go to him early and often.
The Auburn defense played great against LSU last week, in a performance that ultimately cost Les Miles his job.
The passing defense picked up 4 sacks, and LSU was never able to push the ball down the field.

This is the type of game that Auburn can lose after a tough fight against LSU, but I don’t see it happening. Auburn wins big.
