2015 Auburn Season Preview
In Gus Malzahn’s debut season, the Tigers stormed through the SEC with a resilience and will to win that was unmatched in college football. A loss in the national championship may have been a tough pill to swallow, but winning the SEC provided a statement that the 2010 national championship was not an anomaly and that the Plainsmen are poised to stay at the top. The Tigers lost key offensive members Tre Mason and Greg Robinson to the NFL draft, but return quarterback Nick Marshall who will lead the Tigers lethal offensive attack. An early road game against a dangerous Kansas State team will show if there is any hangover from the loss in the big game. Auburn also has tough road matchups in the SEC at Georgia and at Alabama, which will likely be key to their chances at winning another SEC championship.
