Auburn Football All-Access Podcast, Episode 129, Oct. 3, 2016

Join cohosts Coach John Ray and Doug Dean as they analyze the apparent progress made by the Auburn offense against an undermanned Louisiana-Monroe team in a 58-7 Auburn rout in which the Auburn offense rang up 688 total yards.

As Auburn sits at 3-2 heading into its first 2016 road test in Starkville, Mississippi, the looming question will be whether the Auburn offense’s progress is real, or counterfeit results that were inflated by the inferior quality of the opponent.

Since the Tigers’ defense is ranked 15th nationally in scoring defense, and continues to play swarming, sound ball, if Malzahn’s offense – with play-calling now fully delegated to offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee – can make even incremental improvement in scoring and particularly red zone scoring, the second half to this 2016 season could become very interesting.
