The Auburn Tigers will be in the New Year’s Six for the second year in a row. After playing in the Sugar Bowl in 2017, Auburn will partake in this year’s Peach Bowl.

They will return to the site where they lost the SEC Championship, where this time, they’ll face the unbeaten UCF Knights. UCF had the highest-scoring offense in the country this season. They’ll no doubt be challenged against Jeff Holland and Auburn’s stifling, stingy defense though.

We know UCF will have Scott Frost on the sidelines, even though he’ll be going to the Nebraska Cornhuskers after the year. Will Auburn have Gus Malzahn, or will he be going to the Arkansas Razorbacks beforehand? We’ll see.

We’ll be sure to have more on this exciting game in the weeks that follow.
