HELP!!! My 2002 Subaru outback (auto transmission) "grinds" when lightly accelerating at 15-20 MPH. What is this?

MY 2002 Subaru outback (95k miles) sounds like something is "grinding" when i accelerate from a stop, or just LIGHTLY gas around 15-20 mph. When the car is parked and i rev the motor and no grinding noise so probably not the motor. I dont think its the wheel bearings are the problem either for there is no "roar" when going faster. What would this be?
