The No. 25 Auburn Tigers open up SEC play on Saturday afternoon when they take on the Arkansas Razorbacks on the road in Fayetteville.

Auburn comes into this game on a six-game winning streak and will be looking to keep the momentum going.

What are the biggest things to pay attention to during the game?

Will Johni Broome keep up his recent success?

Auburn's 6-foot-10 forward has been outstanding as of late.

Broome leads the Tigers in scoring averaging 15.8 points per game and in rebounds averaging 8.7 per game.

Broome has scored at least 11 points in Auburn's last four games and the team's level of play is noticeably elevated by his presence.

Can Auburn slow down Arkansas' offensive attack?

Arkansas' offense has significantly improved from where it was last season.

The Razorbacks average 82.3 points per game and have three players averaging double figures.

Junior guard Tramon Mark leads the team in scoring with 17 points per game, sophomore guard Keyon Menifield, Jr. averages 15 points per game and senior guard Khalif Battle averages 14.3 points per game.

The Razorbacks have multiple players who can carry the load offensively. Auburn will have its work cut out for it when it comes to keeping points off the board.

Will Auburn be able to shoot?

When Auburn went on the road last season it was not uncommon for its offense to get left behind. That was also true when it traveled to take on App. State in December.

Auburn has been shooting the ball well throughout this winning streak, but it has not had to play a true road game throughout this stretch.

If Auburn struggles to get shots to fall, it could be a long afternoon for the Tigers.

How valuable will Auburn's depth be?

Auburn's biggest strength so far this season has been its depth.

The Tigers have a lot of players who are capable of impacting a game, and that has shown many times already this season.

Could having such a deep rotation be what helps Auburn win its first SEC game of the season?

Tipoff is set for 1 p.m. CT, and the broadcast can be found on ESPN2.
