Auburn's schedule doesn't look as daunting to Paul Finebaum after three weeks
There’s been considerable shifts in the narrative of the SEC West since the summer. LSU has drawn plenty of accolades following a big win at Texas, and that followed Auburn’s noteworthy neutral-site win against Oregon.
But Paul Finebaum shared on Monday morning during his regular weekly appearance on Birmingham-based WJOX, 94.5 FM program “The Roundtable” that Auburn’s schedule has lightened up following Week 3 action. Kansas State beating Mississippi State, which Finebaum termed a “bad loss” for the Bulldogs, coupled with Florida’s dramatic win over Kentucky, which included a serious injury to Feleipe Franks and impressive play by Kyle Trask.
“Oregon was in play, State was in play, Florida I think a lot of people had that as a loss,” Finebaum said. “If they can get a win at A&M, they are now entering the conversation with Alabama, Georgia and LSU and they should. They’re in a position to really become a player if they’re able to pull this off. This is really one of toughest games to call.”
Auburn plays State and Florida immediately after A&M before a bye week on Oct. 12.
The Aggies are about a 4-point favorites in the game to be played in College Station, Texas, with a kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS. Auburn has won two straight in the series including last year’s 28-24 decision.
