The Pick: Auburn -24

Auburn earned a solid win over Mercer last week, but the Spartans struggled to sneak past FCS Portland State, winning just 21-17. In fact, Portland State was ahead for much of the game and SJSU finally took the lead with just over one minute remaining in the fourth quarter Safe to say Auburn is going to come away with an easy win here. Though will it be 24 points easy? They beat Mercer quite handily and RB Tank Bigsby dominated, earning two scores and close to 150 yards on the ground. The final score was 42-16, but it could’ve been a lot worse if the Tigers wanted it to be.
