Coming into the NMSU game, Auburn had converted 77 percent of their plays with 2-yards needed to convert. Against the Aggies, Auburn was 7 of 8 (87.5 percent) on their short yardage run plays. After a slow start on offense, Auburn's offensive line dominated the remainder of the game gaining 311-yards rushing on 45 carries. The Tigers finished the game averaging 15.6 yards per rush on their 8 short-yardage situations, led by running back Tre Mason.

The play...


On this play Auburn faces a 2nd & 4 from the Aggie 6 yard line, coming out in an I-formation set. At the snap, Tre Mason takes the hand off, heading towards the "B" gap on Auburn's stretch play. Mason cuts the play back inside, behind Patrick Miller who drives the ILB into the end zone. Tre Mason follows behind Miller knifing into the end zone for the firt score of the game.

Backfield look...


From behind the backfield, you can see the key blocks made during the play. Chad Slade chops the DE, Patrick Miller drives the ILB into the end zone and Reese Dismukes walls off the NT. Tre Mason cuts the play back inside, scoring Auburn's first of five offensive touchdowns.

If Auburn is to have any chance this coming weekend, the Auburn offensive line will have to play their best game of the season.
