This one could get ugly as Auburn will be looking to let loose some frustration from a close loss against Clemson last week. This is a big mismatch for sure.
Mercer has made the occasional headline in the hardwood but there is not much to know about their football program right now. This is a classic paycheck game.
Mercer is going to take on Auburn and Alabama this season. They are 1-1 beating Jacksonville big time but coming up just short against a good Wofford team (Preseason Top 10 FCS). They lost by a point so even though this is a mismatch that kind of result can linger.
Mercer is a middle of the pack team in the Southern Conference. They do have upward mobility in that league thanks to a number of key players on defense that were All SoCon freshmen on defense a year ago. Still it will be tough for them to stand up in this one.
Mercer is not going to win but if they can have a good first series or two they could keep this one respectable (in the context of what I imagine will be a 40 point spread).
There might not be a higher quality loss this season than Auburn’s last week against at Clemson. With a 14-6 score it felt a little old fashioned but the defense showed how good it can be.
Unfortunately the offense could not get anything done against Clemson. I do give the Orange Tigers a lot of credit but the final numbers are still pretty shocking, they only had 117 total yards for the game.
This week should feel like a walk in the park compared to Clemson so the key will be trying to figure out the true level of this team based on what we have seen thus far.

With the success we see every year it is getting harder and harder to look at these games as any kind of value proposition. The lines are more guesswork than anything else and not worth betting on a lot of the time.

After getting bruised last week this game is going to be all about getting the rhythm back in their game. This one could be out of reach by the end of the first quarter.
If there is a number in this one expect it to be in the 40s’s at least. Auburn can score enough to cover that but if they yield even one TD you might be sweating your card.
