Sign in to follow this  

* Through the first half of the season, Auburn's opponent has converted 42.2% of their 3rd downs during the first half and 29.5% during the second half.

* Auburn's offense has converted only 19.0% of their 3rd downs during the 4th quarter, which explains why they have been outscored 62-3 during the same period this season.

* 52.3% of the Rebel's offensive snaps resulted in a 5-yard gain or better, the highest percentage allowed through 6 games.

* Auburn's defense has allowed over 200-yards in offense during the second half in 4 of 6 games.

* 53.0% of Auburn's first down plays on offense have gone for 3-yards or less.

* Auburn's defense allowed 29 plays of 15-yards or more during their first 4 games of the season and 19 during their last 2 games.

* Over the past 20 seasons, Auburn has scored a TD on 22 percent of their possessions beginning on their side of the field. This season the Auburn offense has scored on 7 percent.

* All 3 of Clint Moseley's interceptions this season have come on first down.

* Onterio McCalebb has now caught a pass in 22 consecutive games.

* Auburn's 3rd possession of the Ole Miss game that included 13 plays for 74-yards and a TD was the best possession of the season. Auburn had 6 first downs during the possession alone with 4 being the previous high this season.

* 24.5 percent of Onterio McCalebb's rush attempts have gone for a loss, which increases to 38.2 percent in conference play.

* Ole Miss had 27 rush attempts during the second half, the most allowed by the Auburn defense this season. The Rebels rushed for 76-yards during the first half and 124 during the second half.

* Looking at the play breakdown of Auburn's scoring drives this season, 65.8 percent have been run plays.

* During the first 4 games of the season, the DL accounted for 22 percent of the team's tackles. For the second straight week, Auburn's DL fell under 20 percent including Corey Lemonier, who failed to register a tackle.

* Auburn has now surrendered 59 points off of their turnovers, while scoring only 13 from the opponent's miscues.

* It might not be on the level of Fred Talley but Jeff Scott of Ole Miss has rushed for 351-yards on 44 carries during 3 games. That's a very healthy 7.95 yards per pop. He has an additional 5 receptions for 96-yards.

* The Ole Miss game marked the 11th time Daren Bates has led the team in tackles from 2009-2012, more than any other player during the same time period.

* Through 6 games, 71.3 percent of Auburn's offensive snaps have failed to be part of a scoring drive, the 3rd worst percentage by an Auburn offense over the past 25 seasons. On the flipside, the Auburn defense has held their opponent to a "waste" percentage of 57.3 percent, higher than the 3 previous Auburn defenses before Brian VanGorder took over as defensive coordinator.

* Auburn gained 212-yards on 59 plays against the Rebel defense. If you just took the 15-yard plays Auburn's offense had against Ole Miss from 2009, 2010 and 2011, it would combine for 27 plays for 737-yards. eek.gif
