 Allowing only 78 yards total for the game, the Auburn played defense as well as I have ever seen. Georgia Southern went 0 for 15 on 3rd down attempts. 

Other key  notes:

After making his first attempt, a 50 yard FG, Daniel Carlson missed 2 in a row in the first half. Carlson then righted the ship, and made his final attempt. 

Kam Martin had to play much more than anticipated because of a hamstring injury to Kerryon Johnson. Kamryn Pettway was suspended for the game.

Jarrett Stidham finished the night 14 of 24 with 185 yards passing. Throwing 2 TD passes. Stidham had one interception, and one fumble. 

War Eagle!
