Here we go ...
- GENERAL ASSESSMENT: Good start for Auburn. Aside from the first drive, which was moving forward until another Lee Ziemba penalty, the Tigers have been playing better than expected on offense. Defense played well until the first 2 minutes of the period. The quarter ended with Tennessee facing a 2nd-and-15 from the AU 39. This is the Vols' most significant challenge of the game.
- AUBURN 7, TENNESSEE 0: Robert Dunn catches an 18-yard pass from Chris Todd. Really impressive drive. Best drive of the year? They did it all: Run, pass, convert a third down with a smart pass, good pass on the touchdown, Mario Fannin making plays. Pretty impressive.
- Auburn's first drive undone by a penalty. That never happens.
- Opponents now 7 of 61 on third down this season.
