A look at how the Tigers' scheduled opponents fared over the last week.
Dominated by Middle Tennessee State. The final score might have been 38-21, but the Mean Green spotted the Blue Raiders a 31-0 lead before getting back into things. At 3-5 and 2-2 in Sun Belt play, things aren't getting any easier though, as UNT still has Arkansas State, UL-M and Western Kentucky still on the schedule.
Some redemption for Steve Sarkisian's Huskies, with an upset of previously undefeated Oregon State in Seattle on Saturday. Still a lot of issues for UW -- Keith Price has really struggled to match last year's form -- but there's progress being made on the defensive side with new coordinator Justin Wilcox.
New interim head coach Jason Gesser gets his first taste of the head coaching life this weekend in the Kibbie Dome versus San Jose State.
Rock bottom on the plains? If a school record for yardage allowed and the most points allowed in more than 90 years aren't, I don't think Auburn fans want to keep going.
The FCS Tigers got right with a 49-35 shootout win over Villanova this weekend. Quarterback Grant Enders accounted for more than 300 yards of total offense and five of his team's seven touchdowns.
All that turnover luck came to a head magnificently on Saturday for the Gators, coughing up the ball six times in a second consecutive Cocktail Party loss to Georgia. Spencer Hall considers it one of the risks of margin-call football in the Will Muschamp style, while Alligator Army feels like it was a missed opportunity.
If you haven't watched the video of Marcus Lattimore's knee injury, spare yourself the grief and don't. Luckily, while the injury was severe it didn't include any broken bones that could threaten his career, though he's facing a very long road back. It made Saturday morning's win over Tennessee bittersweet for the Garnet and Black.
If you like laughing at Auburn, this animated box score will certainly do the trick.
It should surprise nobody that Roll Bama Roll is feeling its oats after last weekend's blowout of State. Still, they are aware that their pass protection isn't quite what they'd like it to be facing a pass-rush like LSU's.
A big comeback win versus Arkansas on Saturday, and now the Rebs are one game shy of a bowl bid with Georgia, Vandy, LSU and State remaining. Also, if you aren't planning to watch ESPN 30 for 30's "Ghosts of Ole Miss," tonight, you probably should, because it looks pretty interesting.
As fans of a team that has clearly been searching for its next head coach for a few months, Arkansas Expats are asking a very, very good question.
