Auburn +2??!!!  WOW, this seems too easy-that is what Vegas wants us to think.  Still taking Auburn (2 units) and the M/L when it comes out (4 units).  UT's defense under Kiffin Sr. may slow Auburn for a little while, but not for the game.  FL overlooked UT and maybe they did have some flu.  Ohio goes to Neyland and pushes Vols until late in the game and still cover easily (thanks Bobcats).  Kiffin keeps looking pretty average at best!!

TN has some key injuries. Starting ML is out, maybe the next best player after Eric Berry. Most productive freshman WR is very banged up also. Auburn getting 2 points smells funny...

This line is painted so the general public thinks "Hey, Tennessee almost beat Florida - surely they will beat lowly Auburn who didn't even make it to a bowl game this year!! UT -3 is a lock!!"

Line is too low but Aub is the better team. Last week TCU getting points was the better team and played and covered like it. I was deceived. I wont again Aub large.

Ten defense better at stopping the rush. They will have some success running the ball. Aub more powerful at offense, but I think the intangibles such as QB play and turnovers will hurt Ten chances for  the V. Done

Auburn is looking good on offense but with Tennessee having Monte Kiffin around, I'm thinking that may be neutralized,  That guy has forgot more about defense than, yadda, yadda.  You get the point.  Lean on UT.

Gene Chizik, head coach and defensive guru, served as the defensive coordinator and secondary coach for Central Florida from 1998–2001. While at Central Florida in Orlando, Chizik frequently visited practice sessions of the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers studying the Bucs' defensive scheme developed by then-Bucs head coach Tony Dungy, defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin and linebackers coach Lovie Smith.

What does a game that was played last year against an overrated Big ten team by Ohio have to do with UT this year?? I was just saying that UT was favored by over 3 tds last week and didn't come close to covering.  I do not believe that UT is very good again this year and Auburn is on the upswing and probably should be favored in this game and that is where my money is going this week as one of my biggest plays.  good luck to all

Auburn wins SU.  If you've watched any of their games, you would agree.  They look great.  New off coordinator with a new scheme that is putting up rediculous numbers both in the air and on the ground.  Crompton and 8 INTs makes this game look like it'll get ugly.  Auburn will roll into Tenn's house and raid it like it's their dorm room.  Auburn ML

What does a legendary defense designed to be effective against pro-style offense have to do with stopping a spread offense?  Kiffin Sr. was a good NFL coordinator, but he is old and not used to dealing with 19 year olds.  This offense is different than what Kiffen Senior has seen at Tampa, different reads and angles.  Auburn has moved the ball on everyone...just haven't played a big defensive front yet.  It will be a good test.  If the UT offense cannot give the TN defense time to rest, AU will wear them down in the 2nd half.  So far, the TN offense hasn't been able to move it on anyone.  Small play on Auburn, should be fun to watch.

Homer play.  UT by 6.  Crompton will make 2-3 plays and only hurt us 1-2 times.  Our defense beats Auburn's offense any day.  Our defense will score a touchdown and that'll be enough.  27-21, VOLS.
