There’s no need today convincing anyone the Tigers play smashmouth football. Their opponents have the bumps and bruises to show for it.
Auburn averages 307.7 rushing yards per game and has five straight 300-yard rushing games against SEC opponents, the longest streak in school history. Only one SEC team has averaged 300 rushing yards in the past 30 years: Auburn in 1985.
Those Tigers weren’t too shabby. Some guys named Tommie Agee, Brent Fullwood and Bo Jackson, who won the Heisman Trophy in ¤’85.
