After a shootout victory over Washington State in their season-opener, Auburn showed that they could be more explosive on offense.
The running-game continued to be a dominant factor, especially from JUCO transfer Cameron Artis-Payne, but fellow JUCO transfer Nick Marshall was able to improve upon his play.
Marshall had two passing touchdowns, one going for 68-yards to Sammie Coates, but was also a key contributor in the run-game.
Another impressive factor was the chemistry of the Ellis Johnson-run defense.
Granted that the Red Wolves weren’t the most daring opponents to measure oneself by, but at this point it’s all about the fundamentals.
The Tigers will now face their first major test in conference play against Mississippi State this Saturday.
