The Auburn Tigers are feeling slighted and rightly so. After a national championship and Heisman trophy, they were ranked 23rd in the AP Preseason poll. Most defending champions are ranked in the top 10, at minimum.
The Tigers have 19 new starters this year, though, and are fairly young so the ranking is justified.
The Tigers will need to see big contributions from several players, both young and old to move up the polls and contend for a BCS bowl birth.
These are the five guys who the Tigers' season relies on.
