San Jose State vs. Auburn Complete Game Preview
USA TODAY Sports
Auburn WR Ricardo Louis

With a fantastic second-half performance and an important conference win now in the rearview mirror, the Auburn Tigers will begin a trio of nonconference games this Saturday with a home matchup against San Jose State.

Auburn's offense was back to its impressive ways in the season-opening victory against Arkansas, compiling 45 points and almost 600 yards while giving a half to both quarterbacks Nick Marshall and Jeremy Johnson. The Tigers defense turned the tie game into a convincing Auburn win by shutting out the Razorbacks after halftime and showing signs of improvement in several areas.

This weekend, head coach Gus Malzahn and Auburn will focus on improving its overall game with a visit from a team that isn't expected to trigger any upset alerts. 

The Spartans were a .500 team last year out of the Mountain West and had to replace several key players from a team that struggled with superior teams away from home. A commanding 42-10 season-opening win against FCS-level North Dakota will give Ron Caragher and Co. some momentum heading into Jordan-Hare Stadium, but it appears that a lot of things will have to fall their way in order to pull off the shocker.

Before we get to the breakdown of Auburn's first nonconference game of the season, here are all of the game's basics you need to know:
