Southern Miss used to be one of the mid major darlings in a pre Power5/Group of 5 era. Since then they have been just OK, not really much to think of in terms the national discussion.
Auburn is probably one of the best teams in the country but they are definitely in a second tier. They have a lot of talent but they don’t seem to be getting the most out of it yet.
Southern Miss Golden Eagles
The Golden Eagles have only played three games but in that time they have shown they are not shy about flinging the ball around – they are 8th in the nation averaging 350+ yards per game.
Jack Abraham is a first year quarterback coming off a great game against Rice. The best thing about him is that he is accurate – completing 72% of his passes.
Southern Miss has put up really strong defensive numbers. They are not normally so strong on that side of the ball but they will definitely be tested against Auburn.
The Tigers are a good team. They have a strong defense but offensively this is a program that has yet to find its way. The quarterback is not quite the offensive threat they were hoping for.
Jarret Stidham just hasn’t become the player most thought he was. I think in reality he might just be a game manager instead of a star. It isn’t his fault but that is probably true.
The Auburn defense is for real. They might be getting guys that Alabama doesn’t want but that doesn’t take away anything from this group. That front is really strong.

That is a lot of point to give up for an offense I am not totally sold on that is why I am going to take Southern Miss.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Southern Miss +27
The Golden Eagles can throw the ball so being in catch up mode won’t be too hard to manage. The key will be keeping their quarterback upright.
Look for Auburn to roar out in front and Southern Miss to chip away. They won’t be on upset alert at Auburn but it might look closer than the game really was.
