Auburn recruited Harris through July 2013, when he chose LSU over Auburn and Ohio State. "He is a mobile quarterback," Malzahn said. "There's no doubt about that, but really what stood out to me recruiting him is he has an NFL arm. He can stand on one hash and throw it across the numbers. It gets there in a hurry. He's a very talented young man."
Despite a rash of injuries to the defense, the Tigers are still ranked 13th in the country in rush defense, 15th in scoring defense, 20th in total defense and 24th in pass efficiency defense. With those numbers in mind, here's a look at what stuck out from the second viewing of Auburn's 45-17 win over Louisiana Tech.
The two most recent trends in our ongoing "inside the numbers" series involves Corey Grant's yards outside the tackles and Cameron Artis-Payne's yards after contact. Both have been the strengths for this offense, but both have taken a hit in recent weeks.
