Action Sports predicts a sunny bowl season for Auburn
Another set of bowl predictions has been released for the 2023 college football season, this time from Action Sports.
Brett McMurphy, whose bowl predictions finished with a 95% accuracy rate for the 2022 season, has predicted the Auburn Tigers to take on the Louisville Cardinals in the Gator Bowl at TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, Florida.
Auburn is looking for its first bowl victory since beating the Purdue Boilermakers in the Music City Bowl to close out the 2018-19 season. The Tigers fell to the Minnesota Golden Gophers in the Outback Bowl to close out the 2019-20, the Northwestern Wildcats in the Citrus Bowl to close out the 2020-21 season and the Houston Cougars in the Birmingham Bowl to close out the 2021-22 season. The Tigers did not qualify for a bowl game in the 2022-23 season after finishing the season with a 5-7 record.
Auburn has a minimal history with the Cardinals. There have been two meetings in history between Auburn and Louisville, with Auburn winning both. The Tigers defeated Louisville, 16-3, in Birmingham on Sept. 14, 1973. The most recent meeting took place in the Georgia Dome on Sept. 5, 2015, when Auburn defeated Louisville in the Chick Fil A Kickoff Game.
