Auburn University Football GRADING OUT: Auburn's report card and who earned game balls after win over ULM


Sean White looks for a receiver in the end zone in the first half against ULM on Saturday, Oct. 1,. 2016 in Auburn.

Auburn's report card, and a game ball to three players, after the Tigers' 58-7 win over Louisiana-Monroe: 


Red zones problems seemed to be a thing of the past on Saturday. Auburn scored on four of its five chances in the red zone, and the one it missed on was at the end of the game with the reserves in the contest. Oh, and the group put up 688 yards and scored 56 of Auburn’s 58 points.


It was another solid day at the office for Kevin Steele’s group. Auburn allowed 251 yards and seven points — both were lows for the season. It also was the third game this season with multiple sacks and Auburn had its first interception since the opener.


Daniel Carlson said this past week that “eventually” he would miss a long one. Eventually was on Saturday as his 56-yard attempt was tipped and fell way short. That was one of the few down spots for Auburn. Marcus Davis also had a 25-yard punt return, the longest of the season.


Gus Malzahn and his hat are now 2-0. The offense seemed to work out some kinks (specifically red zone issues) and the defense had its best game of the season.


OFFENSE: Sean White

When you score 56 points (the defense attributed for two of them), it’s hard to pick out one guy, but not many can argue with the night that White had against ULM. He was 14 of 17 for 239 yards and two touchdowns. He also had the first rushing touchdown of his career.

DEFENSE: Javaris Davis

For another week, the defense was stellar, but creating turnovers had been a point of emphasis. Davis filled that role. After a rough start to the year, especially against Clemson, Davis snagged Auburn’s second interception of the season in the third quarter. It was the first interception of his career.

SPECIAL TEAMS: Montravius Adams

Though he had a stellar day on defense, Adams made the biggest impact on special teams. In the second quarter, Adams burst through the line and blocked a ULM field-goal attempt. It was Auburn’s first blocked field goal this season.
