Auburn Dynasty Mode: Week 2
THE NERDINESS CONTINUES...
Auburn comes into their week 2 matchup ranked #17 in the polls and looking for another blowout win to help them move up in the rankings, and they don't let me down. my virtual Auburn Tigers roll passed Southern Mississippi in week 2 with a 49 to 0 victory, giving them 2 straight shut outs in a row.
the name of this game was motherfucking defense as Auburn sacked the QB on the opening play of the game, causing a fumble that cornerback Jerraud Powers ran back for a touchdown. and after that it just got uglier as Auburn's d only gave up 30 yards rushing and 83 yards passing for the day. and most of that came in the 4th quarter against 2nd and 3rd stringers.
The Stars of the game were the Auburn pass rushers, clocking in 7 sacks. Jake Ricks and Antonio Coleman lead the way with 2 sacks each and Chris Evans, Michael Goggans, and Sen'Derrick Marks all added 1 of their own. every time the Southern Miss QB dropped back he was met by at least two defenders, forcing bad passes, fumbles, a few picks, and racking up the sacks.
thanks (or no thanks depending on how you look at it) Auburn was always in Southern Miss territory when we had the ball, so the potential to put up big stats just wasn't there. Chris Todd got the start and lead the way with 104 yards passing a 1 td. Kodi Burns added another 56 a 1 td in relief, as well as 59 yards rushing on 3 attempts. Burns is looking more and more like the QB i will make my starter (unlike the real Auburn Tigers). Ben Tate tore it up on the ground with 107 yards rushing and 2 scores, Brad Lester added 1 touchdown of his own, but was mostly left on the sidelines, with Tate getting the majority of the carries. Chris Slaughter was the leader in receiving yards with 50 and 1 TD catch.
the defense is completely dominate without any weakness to either the run or the pass. at this rate, i may never give up a point this year.
