The Auburn Tigers look to extend their record to 3-0 this weekend, and shouldn’t have any trouble achieving that against the Kent State Golden Flashes.
Auburn comes into the game ranked No. 8 in the nation and two weeks removed from a thrilling Week 1 upset of Oregon. The Tigers followed that up with another win over Tulane last week.
Kent State, meanwhile, has had a slow start to its 2019 campaign. The Golden Flashes were blown out to open the season at Arizona State before narrowly beating Kennesaw State in overtime at home last week.
The oddsmakers seem pretty confident that Auburn will have no trouble beating Kent State, setting the Tigers up as five touchdown favorites.
This will be the first-ever meeting between the two schools.
Here are the details for the Auburn-Kent State game:
Game Time: 7:00 PM ET
Spread: Auburn -35.5
Announcers: Anish Shroff, Ahmad Brooks
Auburn will likely be looking to make a big statement win this weekend. They have not started a season 3-0 since 2014 and will want to get that third win wrapped up quickly before starting their SEC slate.
Four of their next five games after it will be on the road.
This game could get very lopsided, very quickly.
