The Auburn Tigers have one of the signature wins of the season, starting the year with a victory over Washington.

However, there’s still a difficult road ahead for the Tigers, who have an absolutely brutal road schedule with games against Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Georgia and Alabama away from Jordan-Hare Stadium.

As you can see below, ESPN’s FPI rankings give Auburn a 74.2% chance to beat LSU this weekend, but still forecasts three losses for the Tigers — all on the road:

  • vs. LSU — 74.2%
  • vs. Arkansas — 93.1%
  • vs. Southern Miss — 98.1%
  • at Mississippi State — 45.4%
  • vs. Tennessee — 90.3%
  • at Ole Miss — 59.8%
  • vs. Texas A&M — 72.9%
  • at Georgia — 26.3%
  • vs. Liberty — 98.6%
  • at Alabama — 18.3%

The Tigers have one of the toughest schedules in the country, so if they are able to navigate it, they’ll be a shoo-in for the College Football Playoff.

The next tough test awaits this weekend. Check out the battle of the SEC West Tigers on Saturday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. Eastern time on CBS.
