Five reasons Auburn could struggle against Missouri

For the first time in their brief history, the Auburn Tigers will host Missouri at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

The all-time series history between these two SEC schools dates back to the 1973 Sun Bowl. Missouri won that matchup 34-17 and they wouldn’t meet again until the 2013 SEC Championship game. They played each other again in 2017 in Columbia, Missouri. Now, Auburn gets a chance to be the host in this matchup.

When you look at the resumes for both teams, they are eerily similar. Both teams have wins over an FCS opponent (Auburn vs Mercer, Missouri vs Abilene Christian). Both teams defeated Group of Five teams (Auburn vs San Jose State, Missouri vs Louisiana Tech). And finally, both teams lost to a Power Five team by 28+ points.

Both of these teams are in the bottom half of the SEC in terms of scoring offense and scoring defense. This isn’t a “must-win” game but it certainly is an important game, especially for Harsin.

With a lot on the line for this game on Saturday, Auburn Wire breaks down five reasons why the Tigers could struggle as the home favorite this week.

The Auburn offense has been frustrating to watch at times this year, but the biggest reason has been the use of Tank Bigsby. Or should we say the lack thereof?

Through three games, Bigsby is averaging 12.7 attempts per game. That puts him at No. 73 in terms of attempts per game. There are quarterbacks such as Adrian Martinez, K.J. Jefferson, and John Rhys Plumlee who are getting more attempts this year. A total of 38 rushing attempts for a back averaging 6.3 yards per attempt is downright criminal.

Given the Tigers’ quarterbacks have thrown six interceptions so far this season, perhaps going to your star running back could help jump-start an offense that averages just 26…
