Chick-Fil-A Bowl
Auburn vs. Virginia

Saturday, Dec. 31, 7:30 pm

I have done some bowl capping for a few years and consider myself pretty decent. One thing I have learned is trust the defense in Bowl Season. Why? Because the numbers make it seem like it’s going to be close. I don’t think they Auburn will miss Michael Dyer as much as some would believe. Onterio McCalebb is a fine talent, and Tre Mason has the same sort of physical gifts running the ball. That being said? Auburn is bad at not letting a good rush defense through. Virginia has that. Cam Johnson and Matt Conrath are fine talents, and they will get a big stop or two. Conversely? While Auburn is not going to face a singular talent as special as a Trent Richardson, the Cavaliers have a tag team in the backfield with Kevin Parks and Perry Jones who get a lot of the scoring for their offense. The Passing game for Virginia is decent. Auburn’s been okay regarding pass defense, but a good quarterback has found a way to beat them.

Though Auburn has come up with a good defensive performance or two along the way, but their defense is bad. All in all, I think Virginia is good enough to win by two scores and have them winning this game by 13 points. Can you say money line dog again. Auburn struggles mightily to get off the field. Virginia’s not nearly as much of a shutdown defense as a Georgia, let alone an Alabama, but they’re good. For the final time? Auburn’s run defense dooms them.
