Crystal Ball Run:
Entering Saturday it was hard to argue that any team needed a win as badly as the Auburn Tigers. At 0-2, and with SEC play starting up next week against LSU, there was margin for error on Saturday against those pesky Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks. Yup, that Louisiana-Monroe team, the same one that beat Arkansas last Saturday. The mere thought of a loss was enough to give Brian Van Gorder’s mustache grey hairs. Thankfully the Tigers appear like they’ll hold on, in large part because of a beautiful Kiehl Frazier hail mary right before the half. Frazier hasn’t done much this year, but this toss gave Auburn a 21-14 lead, and now leading 28-14 early in the fourth, and the Tigers should be able to hold on for their first win of the season.

After dropping games to Clemson and Mississippi State, Auburn almost fell to 0-3 on the third weekend of the season. ULM was coming off of a shocking upset of Arkansas and was more than game today in this match-up. ULM jumped out in front after a 12 play 89 yard six minute drive. That kind of drive meant that it was going to be a long day for Auburn.
