That's more like it.  I haven't felt this good about an Auburn victory in a long time.  Great, complete game from start to finish in all phases.

Stat, curious if you have any data on QB hurries....I think I saw Lawson had somewhere around 18 so far and I wondered where that put him nationally (season total to date) and what the Auburn single season record is.

The Defense played angry the whole game, even late in the game when we had 2nd & 3rd stringers in they were still attacking the ball- I bet we won't have any teams congregating on our AU symbol before the start of another game.

Something must be wrong with these numbers. I remember well when folks said we could never field a strong defense when running Gus's HUNH offense. Maybe we are missing something. :dunno: WDE
