Ole Miss – Auburn Warning Sign #3

Why are so many talking heads predicting 3-4 Ole Miss (a team with losses to Jacksonville State and Vanderbilt) will upend BCS top team Auburn? 

Below is Reason #3 of the day:

Cameron Newton has looked unstoppable this year… but Auburn’s team has not looked unbeatable.  As good as Newton has been, the Tigers have needed one fourth-quarter rally after another.


September 9th:  Auburn 17, Mississippi State 14
     Cameron Newton was the clear difference in the game.

September 18th:  Auburn 27, Clemson 24 in overtime
     Auburn had to come back from a 17-3 deficit at home and won on a missed do-over field goal attempt by Clemson’s placekicker.

September 25th:  Auburn 35, South Carolina 27
     The Tigers had rallied from a 27-21 4th quarter deficit and Carolina was throwing into the end zone on its last possession.

October 9th:  Auburn 37, Kentucky 34
     Auburn needed a last second field goal to edge the Wildcats.

October 23rd:  Auburn 24, LSU 17
     The Tigers got the go-ahead score from Onterrio McCalebb with five minutes left to play.


Gene Chizik’s team even needed a comeback in their 65-43 rout of Arkansas.  With less than 12 minutes to play, the Razorbacks held a 43-37 advantage in that game before their wheels came off.

You can look at the above facts and easily see why Tiger fans believe their team to be clutch with a capital C.  But you can also see why some pundits believe Auburn has caught more than its share of breaks this season.
