After being held scoreless during the first period, Auburn looked to be in for a long afternoon, but the defense managed to keep the team in the game until the Auburn offense found its legs. Before today, Gus Malzahn's offense averaged only 21 PPG when held scoreless during the opening quarter and Auburn was 4-8 during the twelve games. Just when it appeared a quarterback change made by Texas A&M swung the momentum, Auburn scored a touchdown to take a 14-13 lead and the Tigers special teams blocked a punt to score a touchdown just before the first half expired. The game-changing special teams play would later be overshadowed by two blocked field goals and another long kick-return allowed. Though special teams finished with a "passing grade," Auburn's special teams have dropped significantly this season.

Jarrett Stidham finished with a very efficient outing, boosted by a high number of short passes (59.3 percent), sprinkled in with two deep completions. During his last six games, Stidham has thrown 9 TD passes with only one interception. Ryan Davis was the most targeted receiver with eight passes thrown his way. Davis is on pace for 69 receptions in a 13-game season. Kerryon Johnson finished the day with 174 total yards on 34 offensive touches for two touchdowns. During a three-possession series, Kerryon Johnson accounted for 14 of Auburn's 23 offensive snaps. During the last six games, Johnson has averaged 25 carries per game. Despite having only 13 receptions on the season, Darius Slayton has over 400-yards, averaging 30.8 yards per catch. Nate Craig-Myers has now been targeted just one time during the last three games, while Sal Cannella has been targeted four times.

The Auburn defense graded out at an astounding 88.0% during the first five games of the season but have caved to 50.0% the last four games, including a failing grade during two games. The Aggie defense recorded eight tackles for loss, compared to the four negative plays registered by the Auburn defense. Derrick Brown led the way with seven tackles against Texas A&M. Before this season, the last time an Auburn defensive lineman led the team in tackles during a game was Corey Lemonier against Florida in 2011. Auburn's leading tackler during a game this season has been a defensive lineman on three occasions. The Auburn defense fell prey to three plays of 30-yards or more, allowing 13 for the season. Of the 13 plays of 30-yards permitted, eight have come during the last three games.

Auburn's victory today had the feel of the LSU game from the halftime point on. Auburn led by nine points against LSU and by eight points against Texas A&M. Auburn attempted only one pass on first down during the second-half as the Tigers ran the ball 94 percent of the time. Once Auburn took a 28-13 lead during the third period, it was fourteen consecutive run plays. Fortunately, Auburn averaged 6.2 yards per rush during the 14 consecutive runs on first down to go along with a 46-yard pass (second-down) to set up an Auburn touchdown. The offense executed better despite a conservative approach, gaining 267-yards during the second-half and scoring three touchdowns. Auburn's third road-conference game of 40+ points is a school record. For the Auburn players, the victory over TAMU gives them an opportunity to make this season special as Auburn closes out the season with three-straight home games.

War Eagle!

Guess the self-scouting Gus and Chip did during the off week confirmed Craig-Myers was being properly targeted. It still blows my mind how he can be almost totally ignored in the passing game. Thanks Stat.

Stat, what do you make of the downward trend on defense?  Late season injuries?

with chubb, michele, harris and scarbrough coming in over the next three weeks we have to at least be solid with our run fits and keep the passing game in front of us.

Have to be honest, we completed 20 passes yesterday to 4 or 5 different guys. This is beginning to look like NCM doesn't get open.

In 3 games he hasn't been open? Seems hard to believe.

The comparison with the LSU game is disturbing.  TAMU's defense isn't real good except in the sac statistic.  That dog won't hunt against ThUGA and Bammer.  I can see a lot of 3 and outs against those 2.  Oh well....

Thanks Stat for your outstanding work.

Sam, I agree but if u are getting 6 yds/carry it s ok to punish their D. The problem at LSU was our center went out as well as another lineman and we could not execute.

Stat, is would be interesting to see if the difference in the D is related to Tre Williams injury or competition?  We need our LB’s to raise their game this week.  GA’s run game will test our D-line/LB’s and it opens up easy throws for their QB.

If I was an opponent I would have my guys bring it out from 8 yards deep. 

 #4, Noah Ige?????. Ran directly into the first man down while he was engaged in a block. We could improve both ways in the return game.

He's usually decent. Not sure what happened there. It's like he meant to use our guy as a setup block but couldn't adjust quick enough to avoid him. Too fast for his own decision making? lmao

Worries me going into this stretch.

Watch tape and you'll have your answer. It seriously seems that each time I key on him he absolutely does not get open. Seems to beg the question "why is he out there?" Or "where is McClain?"  Maybe someone can explain it. Maybe all teams read our forum and know how great he is, so we use him as a decoy? ;D
