Tiger Down!  Nine Teams That Can/Will Beat the Auburn Tigers in 2010

2009 was a season of hope for the Auburn Tigers. After finishing the '08 season 5-7, and missing post-season play, Gene Chizik was hired to take over the helm of the struggling Tigers.
His inaugural season started out good, going 5-0 (albeit against teams like Louisiana Tech, Mississippi State and Ball State) but came to a screeching halt with back to back to back losses against Arkansas, Kentucky and LSU.
Auburn finished the season poorly, losing their final two regular season games to rivals Georgia and Alabama.
Finishing out the season with a 7-5 record (3-5 SEC) the Tigers found themselves in a New Year's Day bowl facing the Northwestern University Wildcats, who hadn't won a post season game in 60 years.
Auburn won in overtime, but not before Northwestern put up an Outback Bowl record 621 yards of offense. The Wildcats came within one fake field goal of breaking one of the longest post-season losing records in NCAA history.
Can Coach Gene Chizik, with his no. 3 recruiting class, improve upon last seasons record? Here are nine games that could challenge Auburn's 2010 season. How many can Auburn win? Some, but probably not all.
