Second quarter, Ole Miss 3-0

We're discussing the second quarter of Auburn's game at Ole Miss.

RUSHING IN FIRST QUARTER:
AU -- 7 carries, 3 yards
UM -- 8 carries, 50 yards

TOTAL OFFENSE IN FIRST QUARTER:
AU -- 14 plays, 28 yards
UM -- 16 plays, 68 yards

  • OLE MISS 3, AUBURN 0: Josh Shene 33-yard FG. Auburn's defense was caught on a blitz mid-way through the drive and gave up a 19-yard run. That was the key play.

  • OLE MISS 10, AUBURN 0: Shay Hodge 3-yard catch from Jevan Snead. The drive started with less than two minutes remaining on the UM 22. Auburn's defense simply yielded ground at a surprising rate, giving up long runs and passes.

It seems Auburn only wins whenever the are playing a quarterback thats worse than their own.

Slaughter has GOT to fair catch that punt before it rolls down like that.

12:26 PM  
Anonymous Dnatl said...

One thing to keep in mind regarding the rushing stats - the fumble counts as a rush of -10

And then there is about 20 hidden yards in that punt that is allowed to roll down to the 10

Auburn had 3 timeouts and the ball at almost mid-field with 34 seconds on the clock. Not only did they not use a timeout to try to get in field goal range, they snapped the ball with one second left so Kodi could throw a 5 yard pass...
