AU is now 6-3 (4-2 SEC) on the season. The 4-2 number is particularly impressive and I think most realistic fans would have taken it back in August...

And how about a shout out for Eltoro Freeman? Great game.

Absolutely he has shown over the past month he should be the starter over the Holland

Gene Chizik: "When we've lost, our team has been really resilient. We're going to take a lot of positives away from the game."

...

Chizik: "It was a great team win. When one part of our team was not necessarily producing, another part of it was."

...

Chizik: "We have not let one loss beat us twice in a row. For a young football team, that speaks highly of them."

...

Chizik: "When the outside world is saying 'how are you going to win any in October,' that's all well and good. But nobody in the locker room's saying that."

...

Chizik said Cody Parkey was "off the chart" with his kickoffs. "He's just an incredible weapon for us."

...

Chizik, on Emory Blake: "You can see the impact he certainly has in our offense."

...

Chizik said Clint Moseley "did a good job of getting the ball where he needed to get it most of the time. It was a better night for Clint."

...

Chizik said he doesn't regret decision to not go to Moseley earlier in the year.

...

Chizik said he's "really, really proud" of Eltoro Freeman: "He's a very emotional player. I think he's getting better every week."

...

Chizik said Freeman "is playing with energy. He's playing with passion. I don't think I've seen him have this much fun in two years here."

...

Chizik said Mike Dyer "has had some tough sledding here the last couple weeks. You just got to keep chopping wood, and you do what you do."

...

Chizik said Gabe Wright "is ready. I think his maturation progress from August til now has been huge. It was time for him to start."

...

Chizik said Kenneth Carter "has played well for us, but he's been banged up. It was just time" for Wright.

@AUBlog

Chizik: "The question I get a lot is, 'How does your team respond after losses?'... I can't say we had any bad days of practice."

...

Chizik on Emory Blake: "Emory's not 100 percent. He's still got a long way to 100 percent..He's still playing beat up, but he was ready to go."

...

Chizik on Eltoro Freeman: "He's a very emotional player." He's learning to "calm down" and "absorb the game plan."

...

Chizik: "We've lost 3 games to the No. 1, number whatever and number whatever teams in the country."

Yup, I mentioned that in the chat. ESPN was geared up for an AU loss.

No the LSU loss was so bad they counted it twice.

Auburn is 19-1 under Chizik when intercepting a pass. Weird.

...

Auburn now has won 69 consecutive games when scoring 30 +points.

...

Auburn is 289-4 all time when scoring 30+ points.

...

Michael Dyer now has 2,082 yards for his career. He's already ahead of Lionel James, who finished with 2,068. (Dyer is in 13th place overall)

CB T'Sharvan Bell intercepted a pass Saturday, and S Erique Florence and S Neiko Thorpe made had important break-ups. DC Ted Roof was impressed. "That's an improvement from past years -- these guys are making plays on thrown balls."

...

WR Emory Blake had five catches for 71 yards in his return to the lineup Saturday night. He missed most of three games with an ankle injury. "He really gave us a shot in the arm," OC Gus Malzahn said. "Emory really opens things up and I think he gives everybody confidence."

...

LB Eltoro Freeman was the defensive star on Saturday night, getting a team-high 11 tackles, including two sacks. "I'm a senior -- If I want those guys flying around and making plays, I have to do that myself," he said.

...

OC Gus Malzahn doesn't have to watch film this time -- he's already prepared to deem QB Clint Moseley's outing against Ole Miss a success. "Very efficient with the ball in the passing game and he made some good decisions," Malzahn said. "Very proud of him right now." Moseleywas 12 of 15 for 160 yards and four TDs.

T'Sharvan Bell said he thought he was taking his INT to the house: "But the gas tank wasn't full. It had about a quarter left."

...

Emory Blake said he was playing at about 75 percent tonight. But he didn't feel any pain on the field.

I was very glad to see Malzahn let Mosely actually run the offense and get the feel for running at full tempo, rather than replacing him fro Fraizer every 3rd play.

But Ole Miss gaining more rushing yards in the 1st half than they usually do in a whole game was unsettling.

Well, I didn't join you fellas in the chat this week.

Not because I don't love ya, but mostly...because it would've been really awkward to do so on my phone in the stadium!

Great win, beautiful night game. Feels great to be back on the plains.

WDE!

I believe this was Auburn's first complete game of the year. However, we did give up too many rushing yards, other than that good game! War Eagle!

Can anyone explain the delay of game penalty against our defense in tonight's game? Never seen that before.
