Saturday Recap: Auburn 34 Arkansas 17
Auburn 34 Arkansas 17
The game went like I expected, Auburn struggled in the first half, and kicked it into gear in the 3rd Quarter. How does this reflect on the team though? The Tigers played their first road game last night, and it was obvious. The offense, especially Brandon Cox struggled early. He was able to put it together in the second half, but it is certainly of concern for next week that he had trouble dealing with the hostile crowd. However, the Tigers were able to find a running back: Kenny Irons. Irons busted out with 33 carries for 182 yards. Arkansas showed they can be competitive at home.
Auburn (5-1 3-0) up next: at LSU
Arkansas (2-4 0-3) up next: at Georgia
Auburn faces its first SEC test with a road trip to Baton Rouge. If Auburn has designs on the SEC Championship- then this is a must win. Arkansas is the sacrificial lambs in Athens next week. Expect Georgia to get a pretty win i.e. a conference blowout.
