Pregame hype trailer perfectly sets up monumental Auburn-Florida clash
The biggest game in the country this week will take place in Gainesville where Auburn will meet Florida in a top 10 clash between No. 7 Auburn and No. 10 Florida. The hype trailer below perfectly sets up the game.
It’s the first significant test for the 5-0 Gators as they’ve escaped against Miami and Kentucky. Auburn, meanwhile, is gathering support with a strong resume that includes wins over Oregon and at Texas A&M before last week’s drubbing of Mississippi State. Coach Gus Malzahn called that Auburn’s most complete game of the season, but admitted that the Florida defense would present a unique challenge.
It’ll be a test for Auburn QB Bo Nix against a Florida defense ranked No. 1 in the SEC in scoring defense, and No. 3 in total defense.
The Florida offensive line, conversely, is in for a challenge against the vaunted Auburn defensive line, an issue coach Dan Mullen has addressed twice since the Towson win last week. The Gators ran 16 times for 60 yards in the first half against Towson, which entered giving up more than 200 yards a game on the ground.
This is a rare matchup as the teams haven’t played since 2011, and only four times since 2001, and Auburn has won the last three meetings.
