Auburn's offense put on an anemic performance Saturday evening at Clemson's version of "Death Valley."
The vaunted Auburn running game netted a mere 38 yards, while the total offensive output was just 117 yards. Jarrett Stidham seldom found time in the pocket, and when he did his receivers weren't open.
The following chart is from the official Auburn Football website.
|Net Yards Rushing||38||99|
|Net Yards Passing||79||185|
|Total Offense Yards||117||284|
|Fumbles: Number-Lost||1 - 0||2 - 2|
|Penalties: Number-Yards||5 - 43||8 - 60|
|Punts - Yards||8 - 324||6 - 256|
|Third-Down Conversions||6 of 17 (0.353)||9 of 16 (0.563)|
|Fourth-Down Conversions||1 of 2 (0.500)||0 of 0 (0.000)|
|Sacks By: Number-Yards||3-23||11-72|
|Field Goals||2-2 (1.000)||0-1 (0.000)|
The Auburn defense however, continued to play extremely well.
Clearly there is a ton of work still to do. With a new offensive coordinator, and quarterback, the Tigers are going to have to find a cure, and quick. After the Mercer game, the road becomes even more difficult.
Hold you heads up Tiger fans. There is still everything we want to play for, in front of us.
