2016 Auburn Season Preview
The Auburn Tigers had a season of near misses last year, losing only one game in which they did not have an opportunity to win. They enter the 2015 season looking to the future, with star quarterback Nick Marshall moving on to the NFL. Also gone from the Tigers prolific offense are receiver Sammie Coats, and running back Cameron Artis-Payne. Despite all of these departures, Auburn is projected to have one of the better offenses in the SEC West in 2015. Quarterback Jeremy Johnson was effective in the snaps he took last season and should come brimming with confidence in 2015. Auburn’s 2015 defense will be anchored by seniors Joshua Holsey, and DaVante Lambert who will set the tone for a mostly upperclassman squad. As always, Auburn will have a difficult schedule in 2015, with road games at LSU, Arkansas, and Texas A&M. Auburn should be in the hunt for the SEC West title, and will get archrival Alabama in Auburn on November 28th.
