Friday links (10/2)

I'm posting this from the road, so I've got to be quick with these today. Here we go:

  • Auburn versus Tennessee is a huge barometer for both. The Tigers are piling up prolific offensive numbers under coordinator Gus Malzahn, who says Tennessee's defense has no weakness. Auburn ranks fifth in the nation in rushing, and although a win in this game wouldn't be like beating a vintage Volunteers team, it would show that the Tigers haven't simply preyed on lesser competition. If the Tigers win, they should be ranked in the top 15 or 20. For the Vols, who face a daunting schedule ahead, this game is nearly a must-win to keep the season from unraveling. Or at least it would unravel if you had the same team every week.

  • Rob Moseley or the Register Guard reports that Oregon might reinstate RB LaGarrette Blount. As you might remember, Blount was the one who punched a Boise State player and generally went berserk in the season opener.
