The No. 7 Auburn Tigers will travel to “The Swamp” to face the No. 10 ranked Florida Gators at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville on Saturday. This is a much-anticipated SEC matchup of undefeated, top 10-ranked teams.
The Tigers now sit at 5-0 after a 56-23 woodshedding of Mississippi State, where WR Seth Williams and RB JaTarvious Whitlow combined for five total touchdowns.
Auburn’s Bo Nix has continued his steady, if not always spectacular, play at the position, running up on what figures to be in his biggest test since the Tigers’ comeback win over Oregon.
Gators QB Kyle Trask tossed for two scores and ran for a third, as Florida stayed undefeated at 5-0, after 38-0 shutout against overmatched Towson at home last week. So far, the swarming Gators defense has allowed 8.8 points per game and figures to give Nix and Whitlow fits in the backfield.

How to use AirTV with Sling
AirTV solves one of Sling’s biggest problems: The inability to receive all of your local channels. By purchasing a basic AirTV for $79.99 or the AirTV Player for $119.99, you can merge those local channels into your Sling TV, (or on your mobile device if you have the basic AirTV). As the Daily Dot wrote in its AirTV review, “It’s practically magic.”
The basic AirTV is a dual-tuner streaming device, while the AirTV Player is basically an upgraded Chromecast that has Netflix preinstalled. You’ll still need to own an HD antenna because even though AirTV gets you access to your local channels, it doesn’t actually physically show them to you.
But AirTV—which has no monthly fee—serves to strengthen one of Sling’s biggest weaknesses compared to other live streaming services like Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, and PlayStation Vue. All those services have plenty of local channels. While select NFL and college football games (on Fox, FS1, and FS2) are no longer on Sling, you can still catch Fox games with AirTV.
Auburn vs. Florida: What to watch for
Auburn put up a somewhat deceiving 56 points against a weak Mississippi State team. The Bulldogs aren’t quite ready for prime time, and present little resistance in the secondary. Quarterback Bo Nix and running back JaTarvious Whitlow have combined to create a unique run/pass battery that should keep Florida’s highly-rated defense on its heels. On the flipside, QB Kyle Trask faces a mountain of challenges, and will need his inconsistent offensive line to hold up against the Tigers’ punishing defensive front seven, especially on third downs with medium-to-long yardage.
