The Auburn football team beat Louisiana Tech 45-17 Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium, yet there is a concerned tone rippling through the fan base. In the last non-conference game for seven weeks – an upcoming stretch that includes six matchups against teams that have all spent time ranked among the top 15 in the country – Auburn jumped out 24-0 and won by 28 points.

However, there are fans and pundits that believe that the Tigers didn’t do enough. With hopes of a 2014 national championship following the close call last season, many expected a much more lopsided contest against a LA Tech squad that lost to an FCS opponent in their most recent game. Basically, 50 or 60 points would have been much more pleasing.

After leading the nation in rushing in 2013 and operating like a well-oiled machine on the way to an SEC title, we’ve gotten used to seeing the Tigers inflict their will on opponents and that just hasn’t happened much in 2014. With a stingy LSU defense looming this week, there are plenty of areas in which the Tigers can improve offensively.

As we do every week at Fly War Eagle, we’ll take a look at each position and consider how the individual units fared. Here are our offensive position grades for the Auburn offense in last week’s game against Louisiana Tech.
