The No. 6 Washington Huskies travel to Atlanta for a “neutral site” game today against the No. 9 Auburn Tigers, in the only contest pitting top-10 teams against each other in week one of the 2018 college football season. The Huskies’ running game will have its hands full against an Auburn front seven that is among college football’s elite units, while Auburn quarterback Jarrett Stidham will find a stiff challenge in the Washington secondary that is arguably the deepest and most talented in the nation. As of Friday morning, the online gambling site Bovada pegged Auburn as 2.5-point favorites, while ESPN’s Football Power Index gave the Dawgs a 50.5 percent chance to win.
