Oregon and Auburn are gearing up for a big-time contest this Saturday. National experts continue to go back-and-forth on who they believe will win.

Quarterback Justin Herbert — who many expect to be a top-five NFL draft pick in 2020 — leads Oregon behind an experienced offensive line. But will he have enough help from a receivers unit, hampered by injuries, to win?

Auburn is turning to a true freshman quarterback to lead the offense in Bo Nix. Nix has received plenty of praise from Auburn coaches, but will he be able to handle the big stage against the top-ranked Pac-12 team?

ESPN experts have weighed in on the match-up, but there isn't a clear consensus. Out of 15 experts, eight pick the Ducks while the remaining seven side with the Tigers.

How does Vegas feel about the game? OddShark's computer projection sees a close game panning out, with Auburn edging out the Ducks by several points.

The official projection gives the Tigers a 30.6-26.8 win over Oregon. With a projected score that close, it may just come down to the wire on Saturday evening.

Auburn is projected to cover the spread seeing as they're currently a 3.5 point favorite. The total is set at 56 points and the score prediction indicates the total will go over by 1.4 points.

Auburn and Oregon kicks off on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. E.T. from AT&T Stadium. The game will be televised on ABC.
