Auburn Football All-Access Podcast, Episode 176, September 18, 2018

In most any competitive SEC West game, if you hold an opponent to 122 yards rushing, and 14 of 42 passing (33% completion rate), you’d fully expect to have won the game, especially at home. But that was not the case for Auburn last Saturday, thanks to a potpourri of mistakes and blown opportunities.

In an unusual game cluttered with mistakes by the home Auburn Tigers, and a slew of penalties, the door was opened for LSU to pull the upset, which they did, 22-21.

Coach John Ray and Doug Dean analyze the key factors in the loss, as they become critical to correct as the Tigers move on with this Saturday’s Auburn vs Arkansas game.

Gus Malzahn’s Auburn Tigers are 7th ranked, undefeated, and sporting what usually wins you big games – a deep and elite defense, and a proven veteran quarterback in Jarrett Stidham. It also bodes well for Auburn that this Saturday’s matchup against 12th ranked LSU will be in the rabid confines of Jordan-Hare stadium, where Auburn has won 13 straight games, including back to back wins over # 1 ranked Georgia and # 1 ranked Bama last November.

Join Coach John Ray and Doug Dean for the analysis of this interesting matchup, and what it will take for Auburn to beat LSU, moving their record to 3-0 to position themselves well for a “back-loaded” schedule against Bama, Georgia, and very likely, another rematch with Georgia if they were to win the Iron Bowl.

Key takeaways from Auburn’s huge win over # 6 ranked Washington

When December arrives, it’s entirely possible that Gus Malzahn and his coaching staff will look back on their huge 21-16 win over the Washington Huskies as critical to a selection by the college football four team playoff selection committee.

Obviously, with arguably the nation’s most brutal schedule, that fond September hope will prove to be a dashed dream unless the team is coached up to correct deficiencies which are not uncommon from an opener against a great opponent, particularly in the O-line and rushing attack.

As the surging LSU Tigers prepare to come to Jordan-Hare on September 15th, there is a lot to discuss, so join Coach John Ray and Doug Dean for the analysis!
