Mercer vs Auburn Preview


Auburn football could have hands full with Mercer Bears playmaker | Auburn Tigers PodcastThe Auburn football season will finally be here this Saturday when the Mercer Bears come to Jordan Hare Stadium. The 2022 college football season is here and the Auburn football schedule begins this Saturday. Being led by TJ Finley, the Auburn Tigers will have a few important position battles against the Mercer Bears. Auburn players…2022-08-31T12:00:16Z

The Auburn Tigers are trying to snap a five-game losing streak when they open their 2022-2023d season against the Mercer Bears. Auburn will be starting T.J. Finley at quarterback after a long off-season battle for the spot.

“I do want to start with the quarterback, T.J. Finley. We announced him yesterday. I’m just proud of him – and all those guys through the competition – and looking forward to seeing him prepare himself this week and get out there and play,” said Harsin in his pre-game press conference (via Auburn Wire).

Harsin also addressed Mercer’s first game of the season, which they won against Morehead State by a score of 63-13.

“Mercer scored 63 points and had 625 total yards. That’s hard to do,” praised Harsin. “We looked at them last year and you see it this year again, they’re well-coached. Coach Cronic does a great job with that group. They play hard, they’re physical, and they’re very balanced when you look at them in all three phases. They had a kickoff return for a touchdown. And they certainly have our attention when it comes to getting prepared this week and having a game to watch. I think that’s something we’re going to take advantage of is being able to watch their first game and then get our guys prepared, ready to go out there and play.”

Harsin also said the whole team is excited to finally get out on the field and show people what they can do.

“We get a chance to go out there and play, and I’d say everybody that sits in this room is excited about that,” said the Auburn head coach. “You get to a point in camp where you’re just tired of hitting each other and doing the same things, and now we get a chance to go out there and play somebody else and to be at home in our stadium, which we’re all looking forward to that. I can tell last night at practice – the energy was different. There was an excitement that this is the week we get to go out there and play, and I’m very proud of our coaches and players and all the work they put in to get to this point. Now it’s time to go out there and get ourselves prepared and ready.”

The Mercer at Auburn game kicks off Saturday, September 3 at 7 p.m. Eastern on the SEC Network Plus and ESPN Plus.
