The Auburn Tigers took the No. 3 LSU Tigers to the wire on Saturday night in a game that was a defensive battle from start to finish. Auburn had some players turn the light on, while others committed crucial mistakes ending the Tigers' shot at the upset victory.
One glaring issue for Auburn was the offensive play-calling. Auburn was gaining .3 yards a play on first down midway through the fourth quarter. There were some execution issues at times, but the overall decisions from the offensive coaching staff left any football-savvy mind scratching its head.
Auburn showed a lot of promise for the future with the loss, but this is just one turn in the long road that is the 2012 season. Here are the grades for the Saturday night contest against the No. 3 LSU Tigers.
