Our 2nd College Football Sleeper (After North Carolina): The Auburn Tigers

Auburn won’t be Bo Jackson-1983-good, but due to a weak schedule (other than losing at Alabama, the road opponents are soft), a super-recruit at running back, an offensive line that returns four starters and a defense that brings back eight starters, we like the Tigers to easily top their 8-win projection by Las Vegas. It helps that everyone’s focusing on their in-state rival (defending champ Alabama), and the new-look Florida Gators. We think 10-2 is very likely (other loss: Clemson, Arkansas or LSU, pick one out of a hat, but remember, all are at Auburn). Speaking of UF, one of Tim Tebow’s former backsups – Cam Newton – will be QBing the Tigers. [Previously: UNC]
