The Auburn Tigers opened the 2012 season with a loss to No. 12 Clemson with a number of key positions being filled by new players. The Tigers played well overall despite the loss, but there are six Tigers who must show growth in Week 2 if Auburn expects to earn a win in Starkville, Miss.
The coaching line states that the biggest leap in production for a team comes from Week 1 to Week 2. The Tigers are expecting that growth to occur when they take on Mississippi State this Saturday on ESPN.
Auburn heads into the game against the Bulldogs as a three-point underdog. To overcome the Vegas oddsmakers, Auburn must see that Week 2 jump. It starts with these six players.
