Auburn ran the ball nearly 600 times this season which comes out to 46 attempts per game. It's a huge part of the offense and the reason why Jarrett Stidham had the best season of any Tiger quarterback since Cam Newton. But the effectiveness of the run game could be limited due to various injuries. Kamryn Pettway, who rushed for over 1,200 yards last year but was banged up for most of this season, has been ruled out. And workhorse Kerryon Johnson who missed two games and still carried the ball 263 times, is questionable
after hurting his shoulder in the SEC Championship. If Johnson is unable to go, the Tigers will turn to Kam Martin who averaged over 6 ypc on 68 attempts. His season-high attempts (14) came in Week 1 vs. Georgia Southern. Auburn is currently a -9.5 favorite over UCF in the Peach Bowl.
