Preview

Auburn won its last game 24-10 over Mississippi State on the regular season road. Auburn may not have had the season it wanted, but playing in the Citrus Bowl against a strong Big Ten opponent is an impressive feat in itself.

Tigers finished the regular season 6-4, with ten games in the SEC conference. For Auburn, three of their four losses came on the road to Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina.

Auburn's only home loss of the season was against Texas A&M, another formidable opponent. Auburn also scores 25.7 points per game on a total of 385.0 yards of offense per fight.

Auburn is allowing 23.7 points per game and giving up 400.9 total yards of attack per fight to opponents this season.

Northwestern lost its last meeting 22-10 to Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship game. For NW, reaching the Big Ten Championship was a great victory.

Wildcats had a terrible 2019-20 season, so the improvements in the 2020-2021 campaign were astronomical.

Northwestern actually led Ohio State for most of the championship game, but Fields and his company managed to break through a very tough defense at Northwestern in the end.

Wildcats finished the season 6-2, placing the Wildcats 14th in AP polls. Northwestern scores 23.4 points per game for a total of 348.6 yards per fight.

Auburn Tigers vs Northwestern Wildcats Prediction

The Auburn Tigers offense hasn't spooked anyone this season and they now face the distractions of a new head coach. The Northwest Wildcats have given Ohio State a run for its money at the Big Ten Championship and are led by one of the most underrated defenses in the country. Northwestern doesn't have the offense to run away with games, but this team is playing tough and should be happy to be here against an opponent from the SEC.

 

WINNER: Northwestern Wildcats @ -3.5
