One week after using a fourth-quarter comeback to stun Oregon, #16 Auburn hosts the Tulane Green Wave.
These teams met last in 2006 with Auburn winning at home, 38-13. Both Auburn and Tulane covered the spread last week while winning their respective contests.
Tulane Green Wave
The Green Wave routed FIU 42-14 last Saturday. Now, Tulane finds itself in the massive underdog role opposite Auburn.
Tulane carried its 2018 AutoNation Cure bowl momentum into opening week play vs. outgunned Florida International. Senior Green Wave QB Justin McMillan completed 14-of-18 passes for 199 yards and two touchdowns opposite the Panthers.
However, Corey Dauphine’s two rushing scores led a potent Tulane ground attack. The Green Wave tallied four rushing touchdowns and 450 yards against FIU’s overwhelmed defense.
Tulane punctuated its showcase performance by holding FIU to 59 rushing yards and 267 total offensive yards.
True freshman Bo Nix began his college career in style after completing a last-second game winning drive vs. #11 Oregon.
Frustrated early, Nix gained momentum when needed most. The 18-year-old completed just 13-of-31 passes and threw two picks, but his two touchdown strikes, combined with a 110 yard performance from JaTarvious Whitlow, brought Auburn from the brink.
Now, the Tigers are the first SEC team to claim a signature 2019 win.
Highly recruited, Nix showed innate competitive drive to redeem his Tigers debut. This week, after riding the high that accompanies such success, the talented youngster will have time to hone his pocket presence vs. non power five opposition.
Though trailing time of possession by five minutes, Auburn’s run defense held the Ducks to 90 rushing yards. The Tigers’ front five put Nix in a winning position with steady, hard-nosed tackling throughout.
Offensively, as stated, this will be the week Auburn fine tunes itself while heading toward an SEC West cauldron.
Though, looking ahead, it seems the Tigers ave found a special leader in Bo Nix.

Free Week 2 NCAA Football Pick
It will be interesting to see how Nix handles himself against decent, yet decidedly less-talented Tulane. Meanwhile, Tulane will come in looking for an upset behind a fairly aligned offensive group.
Yet, the Tigers’ defense will stonewall the Green Wave as Nix, Dauphine and a gang of Auburn tailbacks run up the score. From that point, second and third stringers will litter the field for the Tigers.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Auburn Covers the Spread (-23) (Small lean UNDER 50)
A week removed from downing near-elite competition, Auburn will carry this Saturday’s game and cover the spread.
Expect Auburn’s stacked defensive line to severely limit the Green Waves’ strength: its running game.
Though, with a tiny bit of Tulane help, the Tigers will score enough to put the total over as #21 Texas A&M awaits a week four showdown vs. Auburn.
