In an early season SEC battle, last year's conference champion Auburn will head to Arkansas to take on the Razorbacks. In 2013, Auburn was able to go on the road and beat Arkansas 35-17.
Last season, Auburn was able to put its miserable 2013 season behind them and finished atop the SEC West with a 7-1 conference record. Their elite running game helped them reach the National Championship game, where they lost a nail-biter to Florida State.
The Tigers come into the 2014 season with high expectations, which is no surprise considering they held on to most of their stars and had a good recruiting class. Quarterback Nick Marshall will return to lead the offense and is expected to be a Heisman Trophy finalist. Preseason All-American Montravius Adams will be the main player to watch on the defensive side of the ball for the Tigers.
Arkansas started off their 2013 season by winning their first three games, but they completely collapsed after that and didn't win a single SEC matchup. They did have one of the top 25 rushing games in the country, but they still finished outside of the top 100 in scoring.
The good thing for the Razorbacks is that they didn't lose too many seniors, so they should at least show some improvement based on experience alone.
