The Bulldogs are 14th nationally in rebounding margin at 6.7 a game, while Auburn averages less than one rebound more than its opponents. ... Auburn is averaging 20 turnovers during its past three games, all losses. ... The Tigers are 1-5 against SEC Western Division opponents, but 3-2 against the Eastern Division.
