Auburn-Southern Miss, keys to the game

1. Auburn football fans were treated to a 31-point victory against an SEC West opponent last week, but many left Jordan-Hare Stadium what’s wrong with this Auburn football team. The defense has been stout and special teams (outside of some missed long field goal attempts) has been stellar. But the offense as been sporadic, at best. The run and pass games struggled last week. Will Gus Malzahn and Chip Lindsey experiment this week with a tough trip to Starkville next week? There’s little time to work on things so this game is important.

2. What will we see from the special teams unit? Last week Noah Igbinoghene returned a kickoff 96 yards for a TD, Ryan Davis had punt returns of 48 and 36 yards and the Tigers have blocked two punts. The unit has provided the Auburn offense with excellent field position — it’s time to see the Tigers capitalize on that.

He has four receivers with at least eight receptions and at least 121 receiving yards. Quez Watkins leads the way with 24 for 304 yards and five touchdowns. You can bet he’ll have the attention of the Auburn secondary.
