It’s taking a team with great expectations and teaching it to believe.

Auburn football: Bye week coming at perfect time for defensive back injuries
AUBURN — Auburn had no other option at Arkansas but to turn to Stephen Roberts and ask him to play some snaps at cornerback.
Roberts, a senior who has started the last three seasons at strong safety, found himself on the outside island of cornerback due to Auburn’s numerous injury issues in the secondary. Sophomore cornerback Javaris Davis has missed three of the last five games including the 52-20 blowout at Arkansas with a severe hamstring injury.
