Auburn will play nine ranked teams, but only one will be ranked in the BCS standings.
The other two teams will be teams with winning records, and only one of them will be a true BCS contender.
The Tigers will play the top three teams in the conference, and that team will have the conference’s best record.
This will give the Tigers a solid shot at earning a playoff berth.
Auburn’s offensive line will be among the best in the nation, but the Tigers will have to be better at quarterback.
Auburn has the best receiving corps in the country and the quarterback situation is in its infancy.
While the offense could still improve significantly if the offensive line develops, it’s clear that Auburn will need to be one of the best units in the SEC in order to make a serious run in the league.
