Upon Further Review - Alabama A&M Game

5 posts in this topic

  • As much as we might have wanted to see more passing against Alabama A&M, how the Tigers performed last night will have very little barring on how they perform against Alabama. In reality the offensive game plan and execution of said plan against Alabama will decide how Auburn performs against No. 1 ranked Alabama.
     
  • During the last 55 years of Auburn football, Auburn has now recorded twenty-two 400 yard rushing performances. Auburn's 451 yards rushing was the ninth time Gus Malzahn's offense has produced a 400 yard rushing game. During the 20 seasons before Malzahn arrived at Auburn, it happened only once.
     
  • Auburn's third down production has slipped by quarters this season. Auburn has converted 63.2% during the first quarter and 39.5% during the second. Auburn has converted 39.0% during the third quarter and 35.9% during the final period.
     
  • Auburn must play well early against Alabama. Under Gus Malzahn's offense, the Tigers are 4-13 in games the Tigers score only 7 points by halftime.
     
  • Kerryon Johnson has 823 yards rushing on the season, needing 177 yards for a 1000-yard season.
     
  • Auburn's offense has produced 31 plays of 30-yards or more through 11 games, compared to the 22 during 13 games in 2015.
     
  • Auburn defended 63 snaps last night, allowing 5-yards or more only 15 times (23.8%), a season best for the Tigers.
     
  • Auburn allowed only 2.3 yards per play during the first half and 1.7 yards during the second half.
     
  • 47.2 percent of Auburn's first down snaps have gone for 3-yards or less this season and 43.4 percent went for 5-yards or better.
     
  • The Auburn running game produced 10 plays of 15-yards or more against AAMU, a season high.
     
  • John Franklin III and Kam Martin have been spectacular in reserve play this season. They have combined for 677 yards rushing on 9.1 yards per rush.
     
  • While Jeremy Johnson was on the field, Auburn threw the football 37.5 percent of the time on first down. He was 7 of 9 in passing for 96-yards. Auburn needs to equal this level of production against Alabama and for the duration of the game.
     
  • Rhett Lashlee has spoken about obtaining that first 1st down during a possession to trigger the rhythm in the offense. During the 72 possessions Auburn has recorded at least two first downs, the Tigers have scored 51 times (70.8 percent).
     
  • The Auburn defense has allowed only one touchdown during the last 45 possessions defended.
     
  • Against AAMU, Auburn ran the ball 56 percent of the time during the first half and 97 percent during the second half.
     
  • Auburn has scored 72 points off of opponent's turnovers, while allowing only 20 points to the opponent from Auburn's miscues.
     
  • Auburn with Malzahn's offense is now 52-5 during games the Tigers have more rushing yardage and rushing attempts.
     
  • Auburn has not the lost the tackle for loss and turnover battle during their last eight consecutive games. This is the longest such streak in the last 25 years of Auburn football.
     
  • Kam Martin and Kerryon Johnson recorded the 70th and 71st 100-yard rushing performance under Gus Malzahn at Auburn. Malzahn's offense has now produced (71) 100-yard individual rushing performances in seven seasons. There were 57 during the Tuberville era (10 seasons) and 64 during the Pat Dye era (12 seasons).
     
  • Auburn is now No. 4 in pass-efficiency in the SEC, No. 1 in rushing, No. 3 in total offense and No. 4 in scoring offense.
     
  • The Auburn defense is No. 3 in pass-efficiency defense in the SEC, No. 3 against the run, No. 5 in total defense and No. 4 in scoring defense.
     
  • Last season Auburn came into the Iron Bowl average 377.0 yards and 28.4 points per game on offense. The defense allowed 417.9 yards per game and 27.2 PPG. This season they enter the Iron Bowl averaging 473.5 yards and 34.1 PPG, while allowing 334.5 yards and 14.3 PPG.

This defense sure is fun to watch. Of course they are going to get tested more than they have since Ole Miss next week but the stat of "this defense has only allowed one touchdown in the past 45 possessions defended" is crazy to me. That may be normal for a good defense but WDE none the less

While I have to give him praise for being our workhorse the last 2 games, I wish he would've had the last two weeks off. No one (except Booger McFarland apparently) can watch him run and think he's anywhere near being healthy. There was one play he busted open and normally would have had an easy TD but was quickly run down by a DB and tackled. He's still making cuts and juking a bit but full speed he is not. I'm not sure what his 40 time is, but it looks closer to 5.2 now.

Unless he gets 80+ against Bama, I don't think he breaks 1000 this season.

Hey Stat....Outstanding job!  Wondering if you could give us bama's numbers on the following?: 

  • Last season Auburn came into the Iron Bowl average 377.0 yards and 28.4 points per game on offense. The defense allowed 417.9 yards per game and 27.2 PPG. This season they enter the Iron Bowl averaging 473.5 yards and 34.1 PPG, while allowing 334.5 yards and 14.3 PPG.
