The First Look: Colgate Raiders

Kickoff – 7:00 PM CST, December 2, 2022
Watch – SEC Network+
Listen – Auburn Website
Gamecast – ESPN  

Auburn is set to play Colgate. No, not the toothpaste brand the university. The Colgate Raiders are a division 1 team in Hamilton, New York. They are part of the Patriot League, a division of teams in the upper northeast section of the US. The Raiders have made it to the NCAA tournament five times, including the past two years. Never making past the first round. 


Auburn has only played Colgate one other time which was a 91-62 victory in 2019. No real history between these two teams.  


Well, Colgate comes into this game with a 5-4 record but still averaging 81 points, 14 turnovers, and shooting 50 percent from the field. I expect that to drop a good bit in this game as Auburn is far more of a challenge than their past competition. Watch for Auburn to smother Colgate from an early stage of the game. This will give Auburn plenty of opportunities to score and continue to work on offensive lineups. This is a game where Auburn’s speed and athleticism will pay dividends because Colgate is a big team. 


After two games that will raise your blood pressure, I believe this game will be one you can sit back and relax. Auburn should dominate this game and even though the line is starting at –13 I think Auburn will cover.  

Auburn 84, Colgate 64
