Auburn opens the conference schedule 0-1, and needs to improve quickly.
The LSU Tigers will visit Auburn next week, and Auburn has already turned the page.
“We have had this date circled on our calendar” said Deshaun Davis following the tough loss to Texas A&M on Saturday night. He referencing the 45-21 loss that Auburn suffered in Baton Rouge last season.
What will Auburn need to do in order to bounce back?
According to defensive back Carlton Davis, the Tigers have to move on.
““We’re just ready for the next game. It’s just a game. We can’t hang our heads. We just have to move on.”
Davis also says that as a team, they need to stick together. He referenced that some mistakes were made in the Texas A&M game, but some of those mistakes can be corrected in a week of practice.
Offensively, Auburn will need strong games from key players such as Kamryn Pettway, and Tony Stevens, who contributed heavily again tonight. Pettway was the leading rusher for the second straight week, carrying the ball 20 times for 123 yards. He even scored his first touchdown of the season. “My performance last week gave me a lot of good momentum going into this game.” Said Pettway, of the motivation he had.
Tony Stevens also enjoys having his number called.
““I just do what my coach asks me to do. If that what he wants me to do then it’s a must.”
Offensively, Stevens says that Auburn must score, and score often against LSU in order to win. The last time that LSU visited Auburn, the home team posted 41 points, en route to a 41-7 victory.
