The Auburn football team looked every bit the part of the SEC football champions when the college football season began. After a late-season tumble from their No. 3 ranking, the 8-4 Tigers have fallen into the 2014 Outback Bowl against a 10-3 Wisconsin football team that’s actually favored. But this Tigers vs Badgers football game promises a ton of offense, especially if Auburn football regains its early season form. If you can’t watch Outback Bowl live on TV, you can watch Outback Bowl online free Auburn vs Wisconsin football live streaming as well.
Kickoff for the Auburn vs Wisconsin Outback Bowl live is scheduled for noon EST / 9am PST. The Wisconsin vs Auburn football game is being played in Tampa Bay’s Raymond James Stadium, so Auburn football is likely to have a larger fanbase at today’s 2014 Outback Bowl.
Fans will watch Auburn football live online or on TV and hope to see the Tigers team that went 5-0 to start the season. During that span Auburn averaged wins of 42-14 over the likes of Arkansas, Kansas State and LSU. After beating Ole Miss, the former SEC champs made it to a No. 3 national ranking before losing three of their final four games.
Since then the Tigers and coach Guz Malzahn have had time to work on the defensive flaws that triggered those losses. Quarterback Nick Marshall has also had time to rest an arm that threw for 2,315 yards and legs that rushed for 780 yards during the regular season. Marshall and several other seniors are looking to improve their NFL draft prospects, so they’ll come ready to play. Watch Wisconsin vs Auburn football live online free or on TV today, and you’ll also see an Auburn football team that’s won five of its past six bowl games. That should make things tough for the Badgers.
Yet fans who watch Wisconsin football online or on TV this season know the Badgers’ 10-3 record is no fluke. Running back Melvin Gordon stole the bulk of Wisconsin football news headlines this season. First he rushed for a then-FBS record 408 yards against Nebraska, then he was a Heisman Trophy finalist. But the Badgers won the Big Ten West Division title largely because of their defense, one of the best in college football. That should make life interesting for Marshall and running back Cameron Artis-Payne as we watch Outback Bowl online free live or on TV today.
Wisconsin has the edge on paper over Auburn, with a top defense to go with their Heisman-finalist running back. They’re also motivated to show they’re better than the team that was pounded 59-0 in the Big Ten title game by No. 4 Ohio State, which plays tonight against Alabama. But Auburn has a team of seniors looking to prove themselves one last time and show the nation the SEC power is a threat in spite of its record. Translation: today’s Auburn vs Wisconsin football game should be great.
