Sara P's Fast 5: 5 Key to Auburn winning in Death Valley

Auburn, Ala. (EETV) - No. 10 Auburn hits the road for the first of a three-game road trip. This game may be the toughest for Auburn, going to LSU. Tiger Stadium, aka Death Valley, is known for being loud and hostile.  Auburn will have to put their nose to the grindstone in order to grind out a win against their SEC West rival.  Here are my 5 keys to an Auburn victory over LSU: 1) Run the ball This may seem obvious every week, but the LSU defense is lacking in their run defense.  Auburn has one of the most potent run games in the country, led by Kerryon Johnson. Johnson is coming off a career-best game, rushing for 204 yards and 3 TDs against Ole Miss.

Sara P's Fast 5: 5 Takeaways from Auburn's win over Ole Miss

Auburn, Ala. (EETV) - The now No. 10 Tigers once again showed their dominance in the SEC, this time defeating Ole Miss. Auburn's 49-23 over the Rebels showed the continued improvement of the Tigers as a whole. Here are my 5 takeaways following the defeat of Ole Miss: 1) Kerryon Johnson is a beast Kerryon Johnson was by far and away the best player on the field for both teams Saturday. Johnson has continued to improve this season, especially considering he was injured during the week 1 game against Georgia Southern. "I don’t know of a lot of players that week one will be running for a touchdown, and they pull a hamstring bad enough to where they have to go down and then be able to come back two weeks later and be able to play at the high level he is right now," said Gus Malzahn.
