Auburn football: Tigers' defensive line and linebackers bounce back after lackluster showing in opener

What a difference a week makes. In Auburn’s season opener against Washington State, only one area of the Tigers’ defense didn’t disappoint: the secondary. Thanks to three interceptions, two by “Star” Robenson Therezie and one by safety Josh Holsey, Auburn’s defensive backs were a bright spot in the 31-24 victory. The six players in front of them in Ellis Johnson’s 4-2-5 scheme, meanwhile, barely registered on anyone’s radar.
