Auburn football: Tigers preparing for balanced Bulldog offense, athletic defense

AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn has rarely been challenged the past two weeks. If there is one area of concern for the Tigers, however, it is their rush defense. Despite beating its last two opponents — Arkansas and Tennessee, respectively, — fairly easily, Auburn has given up an average of 224 rushing yards in each contest. And as Ellis Johnson was quick to note, the Tigers’ foe this Saturday owns arguably the best running back in the SEC.
