Blue Plate sees some Auburn points — and a win

We don’t want to say Arkansas’ defense is bad, but Auburn fired its offensive coordinator Wednesday and is still a 16 ½-point favorite today.
The coaching change trimmed a couple of points off the line. We probably would have added a few.
Anyway, the Blue Plate Special has been spanning the globe to get the scoop on Auburn-Arkansas today in Jordan-Hare Stadium. Almost everyone we usually check picked Auburn by a decent margin, but hardly a rout.
Welcome to Auburn football.

First, though, we congratulate all the guessers who guessed Vandy would beat Auburn last week. The Blue Plate wondered about that beforehand, but now tips the fedora for a job well done.
