After jumping out to an early 14-7 lead on the road at No. 10 Arkansas, the Auburn Tigers committed a bevy of mistakes that saw them end up on the wrong end of a 38-14 loss at the hands of the Razorbacks.
Untimely penalties and costly turnovers led to their defense getting worn down against a high-powered Razorbacks offense that would score 31 unanswered points to finish the game.
Clearly, Auburn’s offense was missing injured wide receivers Emory Blake and Trovon Reed.
Starting quarterback Barrett Trotter and true freshman Kiehl Frazier combined to throw three interceptions in the second half, and star running back Michael Dyer was largely held in check after a 55-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.
The defense fought hard and gave a valiant effort, but in the end, the mistakes by their own offense and their inability to stop a red-hot Tyler Wilson would eventually doom them.
Here are Auburn’s report card grades for their loss to the Razorbacks.
