The No. 12 Auburn Tigers take on the Florida Gators on the road at Stephen C. O'Connell Center in Gainesville this afternoon.

Auburn will be looking for its fourth straight win, while Florida will be looking to bounce back after losing 67-66 to Texas A&M on the road in its last outing.

What are four things to watch for during the game?

Can Auburn contain Florida's guard duo?

Florida has a skilled duo of guards in Walter Clayton Jr. and Zyon Pullin.

Clayton, a 6-foot-2 junior from Lake Wales, California, leads Florida in scoring with 15.9 points per game. He also averages 3.6 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game, shooting 42.9% from the field.

Pullin, a 6-foot-4 senior from Pleasant Hill, California, averages 15.4 points per game as well as 3.7 rebounds and 5.1 assists while shooting 43.9% from the field.

Auburn will need to contain these two to give itself the best chance of ending its losing streak in Gainesville.

Who will win the rebound battle?

Florida averages 44.5 rebounds per game to Auburn's 39.3.

The team that controls the glass will be in a better position to come away with a win. Second-chance points will likely be a deciding factor.

Auburn's frontcourt will need to have a good performance.

Will Auburn play a complete game?

Auburn has routinely come out flat in road games so far this season. If it does that tomorrow, the Tigers could end up in trouble.

Playing a complete 40 minutes is one of the most important things Auburn needs to do to have a chance.

Will Auburn's backcourt step up?

Auburn has seen a variety of results from its guards this season.

Sometimes, the guard play is up there with the best in the country. Other times, it looks like a weakness.

If Auburn's guards are hitting shots and creating turnovers, Auburn will have a good chance to win. If the guards are not doing those things, it will be a significant challenge to come out on top.

Tipoff is set for 2:30 p.m. CT. The television broadcast can be found on SEC Network, and the Auburn Sports Network broadcast can be streamed anywhere on the Auburn Athletics app.
