First half takeaways from Auburn vs Arkansas

·1 min read

Auburn’s offense has been moving easier than I thought it would.

What’s even more surprising, is that the Tigers haven’t been able to run the ball well but the passing game has been consistent. Even though Nix through an interception late in the second. quarter, He’s been in rhythm with his receivers and tight ends.

It just feels like a matter of time before Arkansas rips off a huge run. Auburn’s run defense is not playing well right now, and Owen Pappoe and Marquis Burks are currently out with injuries.

Here are the first half takeaways as Auburn leads Arkansas 14-10.
