Allen leads the SEC in passing yards with 1,861 and Williams III leads the conference in rushing yards with 785. Auburn's offense on the other hand is actually averaging more yards per game than the Razorbacks with 479.2 per contest.
The Hogs could be in for another close battle like they were in last week against Ole Miss. Auburn is at home however which gives them the slight edge. The Tigers will need to take care of the football to come out on top.
