Auburn offensive line has chance to be 'really good'

AUBURN, Ala. -- In the first game with a new-look offensive line, Rhett Lashlee didn't dispute the assertion that the unit played well Saturday versus Arkansas. It gave up only one sack, after all, and helped the Tigers gain 595 yards of total offense. And it wasn't like last year, when, by and large, the line only paved the way for the running game. Sure, they still did that Saturday, as the Tigers ran for 302 yards. But they also passed for 293 yards and two touchdowns.
