Colin Cowherd an ESPN Radio host has made Auburn his most underrated team in the nation.

Vegas odds makers have Auburn picked to win eight games in 2010 . This is despite Auburn being favored in almost every individual game of the first eleven.

Cowherd had this to say, “I think Auburn has made an unbelievable GAF on Auburn. Vegas believes Auburn is going to win 8 games. If you are driving to Vegas go to a casino and bet it before they change the line."

"Nick Saban has made Auburn virtually invisible, but Auburn could go 11-0 before they play Alabama."

"An incredibly light out of conference schedule which includes Arkansas State, Chattanooga, and something called ULM. In betting there is something called go either way games, games that could go either way,  they get all four of their go either way games at home (South Carolina, Arkansas, LSU, Georgia)."

"This year it's going to be a pretty light offensive year in the SEC, only one really great quarterback returns. I mean great quarterback, lot of low scoring games. Auburn returns 10 of 11 defensive positions, juniors and seniors. Their road games are easy games they’d win anywhere; they get every coin flip game at home."

"Auburn is a 10 win football team”

Earlier this spring it was Phil Steele that said both Auburn and Alabama could go into the Iron Bowl at 11-0. He was not predicting the two teams to get to that game undefeated; he was simply predicting that it could.

While some might not think Auburn can challenge for the conference title this year, it is obvious there is a growing list of those with an opposing view.
