  1. LSU goes into Rupp arena and pulls off the upset. LSU winning on the road all season. They've been ranked too low all season. Maybe now they will get some respect in the rankings. Elsewhere, Louisville had a 23 point lead on Duke, and then just sh*t their pants and blew it. Not really a good game as a viewer, since it really wasn't competitive down the stretch. Louisville just handed the ball to Duke over and over and said "go score." And then there was Miss State vs Bama in Tuscaloosa. A non-game. Auburn better strap on their big boy shorts if they want to beat MSU in a couple of weeks.
  2. For those who haven't been following the situation, LSU's live mascot "Mike" was diagnosed with cancer back in May. Today they announced that the tiger has "1-2 months to live" and that "once Mike starts to demonstrate signs of illness, he will be kept in his night house which will operate as a sort of tiger "hospice," ... until they determine it's time to euthanize him". Source. I think that I speak for the entire Auburn Family when I say that our hearts and prayers go out to LSU's Tiger Nation as they grieve this tragic loss. Having dealt with cancer both as a patient and as an outside observer, I know truly how devastating and painful it is for everyone involved. Hopefully the doctors are able to at least give him some comfort and peace in his last days.
  3. I know we(JSU) will barely have a chance but I am excited about this game. Go Gamecocks!!!!! http://www.jsugamecocksports.com/news/2016/6/7/football-jsus-game-at-lsu-set-for-6-30-pm-on-espnu.aspx?path=football The Jacksonville State football team will play at night in Baton Rouge in front of a national television audience. The Gamecocks' schedule inched closer to being finalized on Tuesday, when their September 10 game at LSU was scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on ESPNU. The game will be JSU second-straight night game to open the 2016 season after a 6 p.m. home opener against North Alabama on Thursday, September 1. The matchup with LSU will be JSU's 12th game on one of ESPN's national networks and the fifth in the last two years after a run through the FCS Playoffs saw three of JSU's four postseason games on one of the networks. JSU has played on ESPNU five times, with the last being a 62-10 semifinal win over Sam Houston State on Dec. 19. It will mark the first meeting between the Gamecocks and the Tigers and the second-straight season JSU has played a Southeastern Conference foe. Jax State took No. 6 Auburn to overtime in 2015 before falling 27-20 in Jordan-Hare Stadium.

  8. Last season the Mississippi State defense held Tre Mason and Cameron Artis-Payne to 47-yards on 16 combined carries. The strength of the MSU defense is found in their front-7 this season and it will be interesting to see how Auburn matches up with Bulldogs this Saturday. CAP enters the game averaging over 118-yards rushing per game and it will be a major challenge for Auburn to maintain this average against the No. 11 run-defense in the nation. Of the 24 combined carries by CAP, Mason and Grant last season, 14 were held to 3-yards or less against MSU. Corey Grant had the most success against MSU, rushing for 44-yards on 8 carries. Outside runs... During this play against LSU, Auburn faces a 2nd & 4 from their own 30-yard line. The Tigers come out in a 4-WR look with Brandon Fulse lined up wide. Just before the snap Fulse will shift into the backfield inside of Melvin Ray in the slot. Auburn's intent is to run a sweep with Cameron Artis-Payne towards the boundary side. At the snap Chad Slade (RG) will pull to his left, becoming a lead blocker for CAP, who takes the hand off from Nick Marshall. Brandon Fulse is responsible for sealing the DE as Melvin Ray is responsible for the OLB. This leaves Chad Slade with the boundary corner. CAP is able to turn the corner for a positive gain before being tackled by the OLB and CB. The play nets 10-yards and an Auburn first down. Swing pass... On this play Auburn audibles into a swing-pass with Cameron Artis-Payne. CAP was initially lined up to the right of Nick Marshall with Auburn in a 4-WR set (trips to the wide side). CAP shifts to Marshall's left just before the snap with the intent of clearing space for CAP behind the trio of WR's. At the snap Nick Marshall looks off his intended target in CAP as the WR's on top clear the flat. Marshall dumps a short pass off to CAP, leaving the RB with a 1 on 1 with a LB in open space. This is a huge advantage for Auburn as CAP is able to use his speed to get around the LB. Swinging wide with the pass, CAP avoids the initial tackle and motors up the field, picking up 15-yards and an Auburn first down. Should Auburn struggle running between the tackles (very likely), look for more sweeps involving pulling guards, when CAP is the featured back. Look for more perimeter runs with Corey Grant and the use of both backs in the passing game.
  9. Since 1990 a first down by the Auburn offense has been worth 1.43 points. Since Nick Marshall became the starting quarterback he has accounted for 75 first downs running the football alone. In basically 17 games, Nick Marshall has provided Auburn an extra 7-points per game from just his running ability. He established himself as a major component of the run-offense last season but he's become a better passer in 2014. His dynamic ability at the quarterback position has made the Auburn offense very difficult to defend. Last season Nick Marshall was responsible for an impact play (15+ yds) every 6.2 snaps. Not to far off the mark of 1 every 5.7 plays by Cam Newton during 2010. This season through 5 games, Marshall has a ratio of 1 every 5.1 plays, better than Newton's Heisman season. Last season Marshall was directly involved in 38.7% of Auburn's first downs and this season it has increased to 42.3%. No doubt he is the heart of the offense this season, where as Tre Mason was the heart of the offense in 2013. Against LSU, Gus Malzahn opened up the offense and Nick Marshall had one of the best games of his career. Of Auburn's amazing 16 impact plays against LSU, Marshall was involved in 11 of them. The play... On this play Auburn faces a 3rd & 9 from the LSU 29-yard line. On occasion you will hear Nick Marshall go with a hard count to make the opposing defense tip their hat to their pressure and coverage. This was the case on this play, resulting in an audible being called from the sideline. Auburn checks into a quarterback draw from a 4-WR look. At the snap Nick Marshall sets up like he is going to pass just before he takes off up the middle of the field. Cameron Artis-Payne releases out of the backfield into the flat to pull the lone LB at the second level. LSU has the other LB coming on a blitz. Just as Marshall approaches the LSU 20-yard line, he is faced with 2 defenders. He makes a hard cut to his right, faking out both tacklers. Once around the 2 would be tacklers, Marshall sprints towards the end zone taking one defender with him into the end zone for the score. The play was eerily similar to Cam Newton's Heisman moment run against LSU in 2010. Second time is the charm... Later against LSU, Auburn calls another quarterback-draw. This time around Auburn has a 1st & 10 from their own 40-yard line. Once again the Tigers come out in a 4-WR look. At the snap Nick Marshall drops as if to pass and Corey Grant releases out of the backfield just before Marshall takes off up the middle. This time around the MLB manages to recover, forcing Marshall to cut to his right towards the sideline. To Corey Grant's credit, he sets up to wall off the MLB pursuing Marshall from behind. Grant makes the key block that allows Marshall to get up the sideline for a 15-yard gain and an Auburn first down. Grant was not initially assigned to block on this play, acting as a decoy out of the backfield. By remaining active in the play, Grant makes a key block to assist on another impact play. Look for Nick Marshall to play a key role in Auburn's game-plan against Mississippi State. He will likely have more of a role getting out on the edge rather than attacking between the tackles as he did against LSU. Marshall had a great passing game against the Bulldogs last season and hopefully will provide an encore performance this Saturday.
  10. After carrying the ball 10 times during each of the first 2 games, Corey Grant's rush attempts have dropped to an average of 6 per game during Auburn's last 3 games. Though Grant was never intended to be the featured RB, I do believe it is important to have him involved in the offensive game plan. Because of his ability to go the distance from anywhere on the field, he should have at least 10 offensive touches per game. It will be interesting to see what his role will be this week against Mississippi State. It will likely be difficult to run between the tackles so Grant could be a key contributor on the edge and in the passing game. Auburn needs to get Grant out in space to increase his opportunity to generate explosive plays. The play... On this play Auburn will run a toss-sweep to Grant at the LSU 12-yard line. Auburn came out in this formation from their sugar-huddle with Nick Marshall under center. Auburn breaks the huddle and snaps the ball quickly to get Corey Grant on the edge as soon as possible. The key to the play is the blocking of Melvin Ray and Quan Bray on the edge and Brandon Fulse as the lead-blocker. Corey Grant does a great job of cutting the play back inside rather than attempting to race towards the sideline. By cutting back inside, Grant has a shorter path to the end zone. Grant darts into the LSU end zone behind Shon Coleman for a 12-yard TD run. During Grant's last 18 carries, 10 have been held to 2-yards or less, including 4 tackles for loss. During his first 20 carries of the season, Grant produced 7 runs of 10-yards or more. He has only 4 during his last 18 rushes. Blocking on the perimeter has been inconsistent this season and something Auburn needs to improve upon.
  11. If Auburn is to leave Starkville, Mississippi with a victory this Saturday, Sammie Coates will likely play a major role on offense. Off to a slow start this season, Coates had not made his presence known on the field until the LSU game, when he made 4 impact plays during a 41-7 Auburn victory. Hopefully as his knee becomes 100%, he will continue to make big plays in the Auburn pass-offense. Last season the Auburn pass-offense generating 54 impact plays (15+ yards). This season they are on pace for 87 in the same number of games. Play #1... On this play Auburn faces a 2nd & 19 from their own 44-yard line. Auburn comes out in a 4-WR set with "trips" to the wide side of the field. Sammie Coates is singled on the boundary side. At the snap Coates must work through press-coverage by the CB. He stiff-arms the CB coming off the line and works to the CB's inside shoulder as he runs a fly-route. Nick Marshall has a great pocket to work within, allowing him to wait on Coates to get down field. Marshall has time to step into his deep throw as he launches a deep ball to Coates. Sammie Coates is able to haul in the deep ball between two defenders, powering his way into the LSU end zone for the score. This play was very similar to the two deep passes Coates caught against LSU, during Auburn's 35-21 loss to the Bengal-Tigers. Play #2... Through the first 3 games Sammie Coates had failed to register a single play of 15-yards or more. Against LSU, he came up with 4. During this play Auburn faces a 3rd & 6 from midfield, coming out in another 4-WR set. The Tigers have 2 double-stacks at WR before the snap. Sammie Coates and Marcus Davis are stacked at the bottom of the formation, with Quan Bray and Duke Williams stacked at the top. At the snap Sammie Coates runs a square-in route as Marcus Davis runs a short stop and out underneath. Cameron Artis-Payne releases out of the backfield, which pulls the 2 LB's underneath Coate's square-in over the middle. Nick Marshall zips his pass over the LB's and underneath the safety covering Coates. Sammie Coates hauls in the pass and picks up 21-yards on the play for an Auburn first down. Nick Marshall had his best passing performance of the 2014 season and Sammie Coates played a major role in Marshall's success. Though Auburn hasn't been able to run the football at the record-breaking pace of last season, this year's offense could become more explosive and balanced with this kind of performance in the passing game.
  12. Though Auburn is not running the ball at the same level they did during 2013, it still has been a very productive aspect of the offense. One play Auburn is becoming better at with more reps is the inside trap play. It is a very basic run-play found in almost every offensive playbook because it can be run from basically every offensive formation. The offensive line is not required to move or transition in wide spaces, allowing them to focus on their strength and leverage to make the play work. For the RB's, it is a quick hitting play, which can often turn into a big gainer between the tackles. The play... On this play the Auburn offense has the ball at the LSU 45-yard line with a 1st &10. At the snap, Devonte Danzey pulls to his right but is basically shifting one gap over. The play is run as if it is a read-option but is a straight up run play for the RB. The read-option look actually keeps the SLB out of position on this play, allowing Cameron Artis-Payne to explode through the hole. CAP takes the inside hand off and shoots through the hole behind Danzey. After shooting past the SLB, CAP faces off with the safety. CAP makes a sharp cut outside, avoiding the tackle by the safety. He then heads down the sideline until he is tackled from behind. The play results in a 34-yard gain and an Auburn first down. The drive is later completed with a touchdown. View from the backfield.... Here is backfield view of the same play. C.J. Uzomah is responsible for the DE as Devonte Danzey pulls to take on the MLB. Avery Young advances to the second level, taking out the OLB. The SLB is caught out of position, anticipating the keep by the quarterback. This allows CAP to shoot through the gaping hole into the LSU secondary. CAP is at his best in open space because of his great lateral movement. He is able to cut outside of the oncoming safety and down the sideline for the big gain. This is the kind of play that can pick up valuable rushing yardage against the Mississippi State defense this Saturday.
  13. As the season has progressed, D'haquille Williams is receiving more attention from opposing defenses. With this in mind, it is up to the Auburn coaching to staff to create opportunities for the other receivers to make plays. LSU's game plan was to take away Williams, forcing Auburn to generate plays from other personnel. Duke Williams was held to just 2 receptions, limited to only 5 passes thrown in his direction. Of his 2 receptions only 1 was an impact play. Auburn was able to counter with 6 impact plays to Auburn's remaining receivers. The play... On this play Auburn faces a 3rd & 3 from their own 47-yard line. Auburn comes out in a 4-WR look with trips to the wide-side of the field. The 3 receivers on the wide side are initially stacked before C.J. Uzomah shifts from the top of the stack towards the backfield. The purpose of shifting Uzomah is for pass-protection, because Nick Marshall will roll to his right after the snap. Duke Williams at the front of the "stack" will run a rub route between the 2 DB's. Quan Bray will shadow behind Williams to run an out-pattern towards the sideline. Nick Marshall rolls to his right after taking the snap, quickly firing the pass out to Quan Bray. Bray hauls in the pass and turns up field and down the sideline for a 19-yard gain and an Auburn first down. Auburn targeted 9 different players in their passing game against LSU. The six impact pass-plays away from Duke Williams netted 185-yards.
  14. We often see Gus Malzahn overload the point of attack in the running game to obtain an edge in numbers. Auburn will pull both guards on the buck-sweep to out number defenders on the edge. In this case Gus Malzahn overloads the perimeter to set up a pass to Cameron Artis-Payne. Once again the design of the play is to out number the defenders at the point of attack. The play... On this play Auburn faces a 2nd & 10 from their own 33-yard line. Auburn comes out in a tight formation with Sammie Coates as the only receiver lined up wide. At the snap Cameron Artis-Payne slips out of the backfield as Nick Marshall fakes the give to Corey Grant, who fakes the sweep to the left. Sammie Coates will run a deep vertical route pulling the CB and safety over top with him down field. This clears the sideline for Cameron Artis-Payne running a short wheel-route near the sideline. Corey Grant also releases out into the flat and is picked up by the OLB. Marshall technically has a 3-route read stacked over one another. Because the CB and safety double up on Coates, it leaves the OLB responsible for both backs releasing out of the backfield on the same side. CAP runs a deeper route than Grant. If the OLB picks up CAP, Grant is wide open for the check down. It was a nicely designed play, which resulted in a 19-yard gain and an Auburn first-down.

  16. This LSU team might end up with 5-6 losses before the season is out but tonight's performance should not be discounted. There was a lot more talent on this LSU squad than the 1999 version Auburn defeated by the same score, 41-7. Auburn's 34-point victory tonight was the largest margin of victory over a ranked SEC opponent at home since 1950. Auburn defeated a ranked Florida team at home in 1969, by a score of 38-12. I felt that Auburn would get LSU's best shot tonight, with their backs against the wall, after losing to Mississippi State the week before. Auburn quickly jumped on the visiting Tigers 24-7 after each team had 4 possessions. Auburn out-gained LSU 257-yards to 96-yards after each team held the ball 4 times. Auburn made some major strides in terms of team-improvement, which should set the stage for an epic showdown in Starkville. Other than the 4 big plays allowed, the Auburn defense turned in a near flawless performance. Take away the 4 big plays and LSU netted 119-yards on their remaining 56 snaps or 2.1 yards per play. The coaching staff had a terrific game-plan on both sides of the football and the players did an exceptional job of carrying it out. The goal is to have at least 8 impact players during a game and Auburn's offense had 11 by halftime. It was the most dominating first-half performance against a Les Miles LSU team. Auburn will need this explosive play ability next week against a very physical Mississippi State defense. My only concern about this game was the playing of Nick Marshall and Cameron Artis-Payne with a 27-point lead and only 9 minutes left in the game. The risk clearly out-weighed anything that could have been gained and it was a lost opportunity to give Peyton Barber, Racean Thomas and Jeremy Johnson much needed game-experience. Moving forward, this game was a terrific building block for a team that is beginning to find and secure its identity. Inside the Numbers... After averaging 8.7 yards per play on first down during the first-half, LSU was held to 4.6 yards per play during the second-half. Take away a late 40-yard pass on first-down during the second-half and LSU gained a total of 6-yards on 9 first-down snaps. Sammie Coates failed to register a single impact-play on offense entering the LSU game and he finally arrived with 4 against LSU. Cameron Artis-Payne's 118.8 yards gained rushing per game during the first 5 games of the season is the 4th best start to a season (5-games) by an Auburn running back. Auburn's defense has allowed only 5 conversions from their last 31 third-downs defended (16.1%). Auburn has now fielded (47) 100-yard rushers during 59 games under Gus Malzahn. Impact plays were a huge factor against LSU. Only 40.5% of Auburn's snaps netted 5-yards or better, the second lowest percentage this season. On the defensive side, only 28.3% of their plays netted at least 5-yards, the best consistency performance this season. Auburn's trend of playing better defense as the game wears on continued against LSU. The Bengal-Tigers averaged 4.7 yards per play during the first-half and only 3.9 yards during the second-half. Take away the 2 big plays allowed during the second-half and LSU gained 33 total yards on their remaining 26 snaps or 1.3 yards per play. Through 5 games, 50% of the snaps defended during the first-half have gone for 2-yards less. It increases to 57% during the second-half. First-down offense continues to be an issue for the Auburn offense. For the season, 48.5% of their snaps on first-down have gone for 3-yards or less. Against, LSU, 60% went for 3-yards or less. This must improve moving forward. Through 5 games, I have predicted Auburn to have an average score of 40-20 and their actual average has worked out to 42-14. This is one area, I don't mind being wrong for now. 391 of Auburn's 566 total-yards came of the Tigers 16 impact plays. Of Auburn's 16 impact-plays on offense, Nick Marshall was directly involved in 11 of them. All 13 of Auburn's offensive possessions began on their side of the field. This was the first time this season the Tigers failed to have at least 1 short-field possession during a game. During the first 3 games, Nick Marshall completed only 30.4% of his passes beyond 10-yards of the line of scrimmage. During the past 2 games, it has improved to 50.0%. Nick Marshall was most effective passing the ball on 2nd down against LSU. He was 6 of 10 for 129-yards and 2 TD's. He was 5 of 5 on first-down but for a total of only 12-yards. Auburn completed passes to 9 different players vs. LSU. Nick Marshall completed only 43% of his first-down passes during the first 3 games. He's 9 of 9 during the last 2 games. Through 5 games, Auburn has scored on 25 of 35 possessions the Tigers registered at least 2 first-downs during the possession. LSU averaged 5.33 yards per rush during the first-half and only 1.73 yards during the second-half. Auburn's front-7 has accounted for 54.7% of the team's tackles on the season. Against LSU it was 64.3%, a season high thus far. Auburn has run the ball 60.3% of the time during the first-half and 72.8% during the second-half. Final Word: For those waiting for Nick Marshall to become a precision passer, you are likely in for a long wait. If you are expecting for Marshall to be a play-maker, he has consistently delivered during his Auburn career. He simply possesses that "it" factor, rising to the occasion when it has been most needed. Last season through 5 games, Nick Marshall delivered 27 impact plays from 176 offensive touches or 1 every 6.5 plays. This season Marshall has 30 on 153 plays or 1 every 5.1 snaps. He has improved dramatically in converting 3rd downs, passing the ball compared to last season. Jeremy Johnson will have his role in the offense this season and is a tremendous luxury as Auburn's backup quarterback. In terms of being the leader of the offense, Nick Marshall has it locked down. The LSU game was a great indicator the Auburn offense made a major step moving forward but first-down production needs to improve. As long as Auburn can generate impact and explosive plays, it will offset the lack of production on first down but struggling on first-down has a tendency of catching up with any offense. Until Auburn becomes consistent on offense, it is great to know the defense has delivered every week this season. The defense has managed to play well despite the massive substitutions that have been this season. Auburn has built tremendous depth at all three levels of the defense, which payoff as the season progresses. The Mississippi State game now becomes the biggest showdown in the history of the series. Dan Mullen has been a massive thorn in the side of the Auburn Tigers since his arrival at Mississippi State and this is clearly his best team to date. Auburn will have to play a complete game in all three phases of the game to come away from Starkville with a victory. You can rest assure the Bulldogs will give Auburn their best shot and the Tigers cannot afford to give anything less in return. War Eagle!
  17. Seven of the last 10 meetings between LSU and Auburn have been decided by 7-points or less. This could be a major factor, when you consider Auburn is 17-4 in games decided by 7-points or less with Gus Malzahn calling the offense. Auburn is 6-1 with Gus as the head coach. A good early start is vital for the home Tigers. With Gus Malzahn directing the Auburn offense, the Tigers are 38-8, when scoring at least 7-points during the first quarter and 5-4, when held to 3-points or less. During the last 9 meetings against LSU and Les Miles, Auburn has scored a grand total of 24 first-quarter points. LSU has scored 62. Since 1981, Auburn is 6-2 against LSU, when the Bengal-Tigers are held scoreless during the first quarter. LSU is 10-3, when scoring at least 7-points against Auburn in the first-quarter. During the last 25 meetings between the two schools, the team with the most rushing yardage is 18-7. During that same time span, Auburn is 8-0 vs. LSU, when they have at least 10 more rush attempts than LSU. During the last 10 meetings vs. LSU, Auburn has struggled throwing the football on third-down. Auburn has completed only 43% of their 3rd down passes for an average of 5.61 yards per attempt. This has resulted in an efficiency rating of 93.4. Auburn's average pass rating on 3rd down during that time period was 130.3. Auburn's record over the past 10 seasons with a pass-rating of 130 or better on third-down is 52-6 and 44-31, when falling below 130. Auburn 27 LSU 23
  18. Last season placed Auburn back into the national picture but only continued success at this highest level will create the "perception" of being an elite program. Consider the percentage of seasons Auburn had with a win percentage of .750 or better... 1950-1959: 30.0% - 1 SEC Title 1960-1969: 20.0% 1970-1979: 40.0% 1980-1989: 60.0% - 4 SEC Ttiles 1990-1999: 30.0% 2000-2009: 30.0% - 1 SEC Title 2010-2013: 50.0% - 2 SEC Titles It is easy to see why the 1980's under Pat Dye is considered the most successful decade of Auburn football. This current decade has the potential to be as good as the 80's. The Big Six in the SEC: ( Pct of seasons of .750 or better 1990-2013) Florida ................. 62.5% *8 SEC Titles Alabama .............. 54.2% *4 LSU ..................... 50.0% *4 Tennessee ........... 50.0% *3 Georgia ............... 45.8% *2 Auburn ................ 33.3% *3 The Big Six in the SEC (2000-2013): LSU ..................... 71.4% * 4 SEC Titles Alabama .............. 57.1% *2 Florida ................ 50.0% *3 Georgia .............. 50.0% *2 Auburn ................ 35.7% *3 Tennessee ........... 21.4% *0 Though Florida had a horrible season last year, a 10-win season in 2014 gets them back in the media spotlight immediately because of their history over the past 24 seasons. Alabama is basking in the spotlight under Nick Saban, who has won 4 MNC's since arriving in the SEC. Alabama is currently on a six-year run of 10-wins or more, which is why they are so highly ranked entering the 2014 season. Voters will give Alabama and Nick Saban the benefit of the doubt based on their recent success. Keep in mind it is much easier for reporters and members of the media to write and report on teams that are successful than researching the teams that are about to make their runs of success. Even LSU without Nick Saban has maintained their national presence in the world of college football because of their success under Les Miles. Les Miles has led LSU to a MNC and two conference titles since taking over the program. Despite not winning a MNC, Mark Richt and Georgia tend to receive positive media attention. The Bulldogs went 8-5 last season (finished unranked) and lost their most productive QB but are ranked No. 12 in the preseason Coaches Poll (2014). This is likely built upon their ability to post .750 seasons at a 50% clip over the past 14 seasons. Over the past 5 seasons UGA has compiled a 4-13 record against teams that won 75% of their games and are 2-3 in bowl games. Their last conference championship was in 2005.
  19. Before the season began, Sammie Coates was one of the primary receivers the Auburn coaching staff hoped would step up this season. To his credit he has delivered, becoming Auburn's most dangerous weapon in their pass-offense. He is currently the most targeted receiver as well as the leading receiver on the team. He only has 11 receptions through 4 games but 6 of them have gone for over 25-yards, resulting in a 27.8 yards per reception average. On this play Auburn faces a 1st & 10 from inside their own 35-yard line. The Tigers come out in a 4-WR set with "trips" to the left and Coates singled out to the right. At the snap Nick Marshall does a splendid job looking off his primary target (Coates) as Sammie Coates comes of the line on the inside shoulder of the corner. Sammie Coates runs a go-route with the safety coming over top to assist the CB covering Coates. The Auburn OL does an excellent job setting up a pocket for Marshall to deliver a perfectly thrown ball to Coates, blazing down field. Coates hauls in the pass despite the CB's attempt to strip the ball out, picking up 42-yards and an Auburn 1st down. Despite the fact LSU played a lot of cover-2 during the second-half, Auburn was still able to burn the LSU secondary on two long balls to Sammie Coates. Auburn's vertical passing game allowed the Tigers to keep the running lanes open and the safeties playing back rather than providing run support.
  20. For the past 3 seasons, Auburn has struggled defending the run. During the last 26 games against FBS competition, the Tigers have allowed 200.9 yards per game on the ground at 4.93 yards per attempt. This includes 213.3 yards rushing per game against conference opponents at 5.16 yards per clip. Until Auburn begins to play better run-defense, the Tigers will continue to struggle competing against the better teams within the conference. Last season Auburn allowed 197.6 yards rushing per game, which has improved to 175.0 yards this season but nowhere close to where Coach Ellis Johnson wants. On this play Auburn will execute a run-blitz defending a LSU running play. Robenson Therezie comes of the edge from the boundary side. Because he is unaccounted for, he is able to slip down from the backside to make a play on the runner. Note in frame #3 how the Auburn front-7 is taken out of the play for the most part except for Robenson Therezie. He is able to take down the ball carrier from behind for a loss on the play. Auburn has allowed their opponent to rush for at least 200-yards, 14 times during the last 29 games. To show had poor this frequency of 200-yard games is, you would have to go back 119 games to total 14 games of 200-yards allowed prior to the 2011 season. This equates to 1 every 2.1 games compared to 1 every 8.5 games. From 1989-2010, Auburn's average national ranking in run-defense was No. 29 over a 22-year period. This included 13 top-25 rankings. Over the past 3 season (2011-2013) Auburn's average national ranking in run-defense is No. 91.
  21. With the loss of Jaylon Denson, the addition of Tony Stevens becomes even more vital for the Auburn offense. The 4-star recruit has a great frame (6-3) to eventually become a physical presence but Auburn needs his athletic exploits now. With Marcus Davis taking advantage of his recent playing time, Tony Stevens must realize his opportunity could be now too. On this play Auburn is operating out of their 2-minute offense, facing a 2nd & 10 situation. Tony Stevens is lined up in the slot with the Tigers in a 4-WR set. The DB playing tight over him will actually come on a blitz, creating a "hot route" opportunity for the true freshman. Nick Marshall doesn't have much time to get his pass off but he manages to make his throw just as he is being hit. The delivery of the ball is low and behind Stevens but he adjusts to make the reception for an 11-yard gain and first down. With better pass-protection and a better throw, this play could have resulted in something big.
  22. After falling behind 21-0 by halftime, Auburn needed a boost to start the second-half off on a good note. Jermaine Whitehead made this happen on the first offensive snap of the third period, when he recorded an interception. It was the first interception thrown by the LSU offense up to that point of the season. The quick-turnover gave the Auburn offense a short field to work with and the Tigers cashed in on a 7-play touchdown drive following the Whitehead interception. On this play the LSU offense has a 1st & 10 from their own 44-yard line following a failed onside-kick by Auburn. LSU comes out in a 3-WR set with "twins" to the wide side of the field. Jermaine Whitehead has 1 on 1 coverage with the slot-WR. At the snap, Whitehead is already playing about 7-yards off the line of scrimmage and he begins to back-peddle. By doing so, he can watch the WR and QB at the same time. The slot-WR is running a short out-route underneath the split-end, running a vertical route to clear space. As the slot-WR goes into his break, Whitehead now observes the QB locking onto the slot-WR. As the QB releases the ball, Whitehead makes his move on the ball, stepping in front of the slot-WR to make the interception. Through 4 games, the Auburn defense has more pass breakups and interceptions than the 2012 defense through 4 games.
  23. It appears Tre Mason might be separating himself from Cameron Artis-Payne to become the primary RB but CAP will still be a major component of Auburn's running game. Coach Gus Malzahn believes in having a trio of backs in the playing rotation in order to keep his ground game fresh as the game progresses. Though he only had 7 carries against LSU this past Saturday, CAP averaged 5.9 yards per carry. On this play Auburn has a 1st &10 at the LSU 12-yard line set to run their zone-read play. Cameron Artis-Payne is in at RB. At the snap, Nick Marshall reads the DE, who is playing the quarterback so Marshall hands off to CAP. Cameron Artis-Payne takes the hand off and cuts back to his right. Patrick Miller drives the DE inside to give CAP the edge as Quan Bray seals the OLB. When CAP first took the hand off, he took 1 step inside before cutting back to his right, which had LSU's front-7 initially reacting to an inside run. Once CAP gets to the edge, Brandon Fulse makes a good kick-out block on the CB, clearing a path to the end zone for Artis-Payne. Cameron scores on a 12-yard run made possible by Auburn winning the line of scrimmage and possessing solid blocking on the perimeter. Brandon Fulse will likely play a major role in the offense from this point on with the loss of Jaylon Denson.
  24. Auburn's offensive line played well against the LSU defense for the most part as this unit continues to gel with more game experience together. Last season the Auburn offense finished at No. 119 in tackles for loss (ratio) allowed. This season Auburn is currently 32nd nationally in this same category. This speaks volumes of the improved play of the Auburn OL. On this play Auburn runs Tre Mason inside as LSU attempts to blitz a LB through the "C" gap. Alex Kozan pulls on this play and will engage the blitzing LB. Not only does Kozan prevent a possible negative play, Kozan utterly destroys the LB as Mason gains 6-yards and an Auburn first down.
  25. One of the reasons why Auburn had success running the football against LSU was Auburn's ability to spread LSU out with their 4-WR set. By going to a 4-WR set, LSU could commit no more than 7 in the box to defend the run and often only had 6. Once Auburn was able to open up their passing game, LSU had to respect the Tigers ability to hurt LSU throwing the football. Having an athletic quarterback in the backfield means Auburn is in a 2-back set despite having only 1 RB in the backfield. The opposing team must account for Marshall in the running game, which now turns the "numbers" advantage in Auburn's favor. The above play is a prime example. Auburn faces a 3rd & 1 but comes out in a 4-WR set with "trips" to the wide side of the field. LSU counters with only 6 in the box, giving Auburn a 7 to 6 advantage in the box. Auburn will run a zone-read play with Nick Marshall having to read the OLB on the boundary side. At the snap, the OLB commits to the outside, which Marshall reads, handing the ball off to Tre Mason. The OL wedges the DL inside with Patrick Miller sealing the DE. Chad Slade smothers the MLB and Mason is quickly into the secondary. He darts 17-yards down to the 1-yard line for an Auburn first down. Malzahn's base set is normally a 3-WR, 2 back set but Marshall now gives Auburn the ability to go 4-WR more often. Utilizing this same play, Malzahn later dials up a zone-read pass play, once again making the most of their "numbers" advantage.
