The first thing that jumps out about the Seminoles is that they statistically have the best offense in the country. It’s balanced and explosive, and their defense has been just as dominant. Yes, I know they play in the mighty ACC, but their numbers across the board are dominant, even their turnover margin at +17.

What’s even more impressive is the Noles’ red zone numbers, scoring 55 TDs, but Auburn’s best asset on defense is their red zone defense, allowing opponents to score just 71 percent of the time. Auburn’s defense is bend but don’t break, and they’ll have to be great in the red zone tonight.
