The Tigers will be without a ton of players in this game including quarterback Bo Nix, who entered the transfer portal and is set to play with the Oregon Ducks, but we’re still taking Auburn. It’s interesting to see the different approaches coaches take to bowl season, and Houston head coach Dana Holgorsen is always looking toward the future. He is 2-6 in bowl games during his career including 1-7 against the spread in those contests. Plenty of Auburn players will get an increase in reps they should be eager to take advantage of and play hard.
