At the onset of the season, the Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn was on one of the hottest seats in the country. Malzahn has been through this before at Auburn. And he pulled through successfully. So far this year Malzahn and War Eagle are thriving. The Gus Bus is on a roll with the coach again having assumed play-calling responsibilities. And a freshman quarterback named Bo Nix is proving to be an NCAA Football betting asset. Counter to that is a Florida team that is winning with defense. Offensively the Gators are a work in progress.
