Minnesota Was A Surprise Contender
Minnesota was not expected to contend for a Big Ten title this season, but that is exactly what happened. The Golden Gophers won their first nine games of the season and finished with a record of 10-2.
Minnesota did fall short of reaching the Big Ten Championship Game by winning just one of its final three games. The Golden Gophers did not play a very tough non-conference schedule, but their win over Penn State proved how great of a team this could be.
The Golden Gophers averaged over 34 points per game this season, and they did it with an extremely balanced offensive attack. Running back Rodney Smith rushed for over 1,000 yards, while quarterback Tanner Morgan threw for nearly 3,000 yards.
The Golden Gophers did give up over 24 points per game, and they will be tested in this game.
The Tigers Powered Through
The Auburn Tigers once again challenged themselves with a grueling and tough schedule in 2019, and they finished the season with a record of 9-3. The Tigers went 5-3 in SEC play, but they did finish the season by winning two straight games.
Auburn pulled off a terrific upset win over the Alabama Crimson Tide in the Iron Bowl, which should give it plenty of momentum heading into this game.
Auburn outscored its opponents by close to 18 points per game this season, and its defense was one of the biggest reasons why. Defensive end Marlon Davidson leads the team with 7.5 sacks, and the Tigers have racked up 28 of them on the season.
Freshman quarterback Bo Nix threw just 15 touchdowns during the season and completed just 57 percent of his pass attempts.
The Tigers will run the ball, as they averaged 211 rushing yards per game. Auburn can score points in a variety of ways, but its defense is what makes it stand out.
Our Minnesota Vs. Auburn Outback Bowl Betting Prediction
Both of these teams have had terrific seasons, but Minnesota was a much bigger surprise in 2019. The Golden Gophers put together a terrific resume, but they struggled a bit down the stretch.
Minnesota is going to keep this game close for a while, but Auburn just has too much talent on both sides of the ball. Auburn’s defense is going to show up, and that is going to be the difference in this game.
The best bet is taking the Auburn Tigers -7.5 to win the Outback Bowl over the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
