Sound Off: How can Auburn fix rushing issues with banged-up running backs?

Auburn football has blown out back-to-back opponents in SEC play for the first time in 30 years. Yet Auburn is still searching for that next level in a running game that has been average at best.

Struggling Ole Miss presents a good matchup for Auburn to solve some of these problems, which SEC Country’s Lauren Shute and Justin Ferguson discuss on this week’s edition of Sound Off, presented by Zaxby’s.

Sound Off: How can Auburn fix issues with banged-up RBs?

Here are some timestamps to guide you:

  • Auburn’s top three running backs aren’t 100 percent, according to coach Gus Malzahn. The running game hasn’t been able to find its normal edge. Ole Miss has one of the worst run defenses in the country. How can the Tigers take advantage? (0:33)
  • With Auburn fresh off back-to-back blowouts and Ole Miss coming off a 63-point loss, it’s completely fair to see how the Tigers could overlook the Rebels. But Auburn needs to avoid the dreaded letdown — even if it’s not a loss — in an early kickoff Saturday. (4:05)
  • What does success look like in a matchup that could turn into another blowout win? Auburn has the opportunity to pick up some style points this weekend. Do they need to push for them ahead of their upcoming road slate? (6:26)
