It won’t be long before the Auburn Tigers are set to host the Mercer Bears as they open the 2022 season.

We will finally know who will take the starting job under center, whether that is Zach Calzada, T.J. Finley, or Robby Ashford. What we do know is that Tank Bigsby is ready to shoulder the load for the offense in the running game. The SEC media recently named him first-team All-SEC at his position.

Defensively the team will be led by Derick Hall, Colby Wooden, and Owen Pappoe. The defense appears to be the strength of this team and we will soon find out how much truth there is to that.

As we continue to prepare for the upcoming campaign in year two of the Bryan Harsin era, College Football News released their game-by-game predictions for Auburn.
