Auburn vs. Penn State, after two weeks without losing both teams want to continue winning in Week 3 of the NCAAF but only one of them will continue with the winning streak.
Date: Saturday, September 18, 2021.
Time: 7:30 PM (ET)
Location: Beaver Stadium, University Park, Pennsylvania.
Auburn: Two weeks winning.
The first two weeks of the 2021 NCAAF were victories for the Auburn Tigers against Akron 60-10 and Alabama State 62-0. The team met expectations of winning the first two games of the season. But now the rival, Penn State, is one of the strongest in the AP Poll.
Tigers defense is the second best of the season allowing only 5 points per game, but those stats are based on two wins against mediocre opponents. Their Offense is the deadliest in the NCAAF with 61 points on average this season.
Bo Nix is the Auburn Tigers starting quarterback with 29/39 passes completed for 74.4% effectiveness, 383 pass yards, 5 touchdowns without interceptions. The backup quaterback is TJ Finley, he threw some passes this season for 4/7 with a 57.1% and a touchdown.
Penn State: Defense at home.
Penn State won the first game of the season against a conference rival, the game was against Wisconsin 16-10 on the road. That victory in the Big Ten was key to send a message to the other teams at the conference. The next game against a Big Ten rival is October 2 against Iowa on the road.
Home defense is 16th best out of 130 this season, they are allowing an average of 11.5 points per game. The offense is scoring up to 1.5 touchdowns per game with 145 average rush yards for 30 points per game.
Sean Clifford started the season with 39/62 passes completed for 62.9%, 477 pass yards, and 2 touchdowns with no interceptions. Clifford has 138.2 overall rating, the backup for him is Ta’Quan Roberson with only three passes and a touchdown this season.
