Auburn is rivalry game. The biggest rivalry in the SEC. They're not as good as Bama but with nothing to lose and everything to gain they win. Bama makes some mistakes and Auburn capitalized. Auburn played their best ball against their biggest rival. They ruined Bama perfect season and get into the SECCG. That's basically the same motivation that Michigan has. How can your point be an excuse for one team but not for the other? I mean Michigan is horrible so in a sense the situation you're using to justify OSU poor performances isn't really applicable. Good teams should beat bad teams even if it's a rivalry. I wont say you're point is wrong because I agree anything can happen in a rivalry game including Bama losing to Auburn because of countless mistake, or OSU defense folding like a paper plate to team that merely calls themselves michigan.
