College football betting fans were more than enthused by the Golden Eagles offensive explosion as they easily covered the NCAA football line as nine-point favorites. Their defense will have to be stouter against the Tigers though after getting shredded for 263 yards on the ground by UL-Lafayette, mainly due to dual threat QB Michael Desormeaux.
Tommy Tuberville’s Tigers put up a very strong showing against the Warhawks dominating them on offense and defense in a 34-0 win. Junior RB Ben Tate was the leading ground gainer, rushing for 115 yards on only 13 carries for the Tigers in the affair.
The Tigers defense was also stellar, holding the Warhawks to 220 total yards and only had two of eighteen third down attempts converted against them. This was great news for those who like to bet on college football games going under the ‘total’ per the NCAA odds.
Auburn will have to work on their own passing game in this contest before entering SEC play as they only averaged a pathetic 3.1 yards per passing play against UL-Monroe. The NCAA lines have the Tigers favored by 17.5-points in this game and have set the ‘total’ at 44 points.
