Auburn football: Tigers looking for better pass protection against 'aggressive' Georgia defense

AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn has passed for more yards than it has run for just twice this season. That came in back-to-back games in September, versus conference foes Mississippi State and LSU. Since then, the Tigers have been on such a rushing tear the passing game has been an afterthought. In the past two weeks alone, starting quarterback Nick Marshall has had to put the ball in the air just 16 times.
