3 takeaways from Tigers' win over Florida in Week 6

The #12 Auburn Tigers will look to build on their solid 5-1 record which includes a 3-0 mark in SEC play after a 44-23 handling of Ole Miss in their last outing.

The Auburn Tigers are seeking their 5th straight win. Their O/U trends are now 1-4 in their last 5 road games, 4-1 in their last 5 October games, and 3-8 in their last 11 games overall.

One Florida Gators dad seemingly had a disagreement with a frat bro outside Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, so they chose to settle things with violence. Michigan's streak ended with a 31-0 loss at Notre Dame on September 6, 2014.

"We just didn't do enough".

Three weeks ago, McElwain created a bit of a stir when he moved offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier from the sideline to the press box before the Tennessee game, hoping Nussmeier would see more of the field "from a sterile environment".

I think both of these teams have major concerns heading into this game. "They did a good job". That would put them in a decent spot as the season wound down. I would compare it to any group in the country. "I've got to continue to work on that".

LSU made it 17-3 on the first drive of the second half.

McElwain said part of the problem is Florida's third-down conversion rate, which is.396, seventh in the league.

If neither Malone nor Weathersby can play, there will be three true freshmen on the offensive line, as was the case for most of the Florida game - Saahdiq Charles at left tackle, Austin Deculus at right tackle and normal starter Ed Ingram at right guard.

"We got beat in all the shifts and motions", no less an authority than Florida coach Jim McElwain said. "This shows what kind of team we can be". We're gelling at the right time, but we're not complacent. "Wow. Just a great game all around by the players and the coaches". So Coach O wanted to get us back to that physicality.

DB Chauncey Gardner - starter: Hurt his ankle in loss to LSU. "Got off to a tough start, had a few growing pains in some areas".

This week's game against another (very) interesting program in Texas A&M was already generating some intrigue but, on Monday, Florida made an announcement that was surely draw extra eye balls to the screen. Now we haven't arrived yet - OK, by any means - but you can see us, our team is trying to improve each week. They also have lost their only SEC game in a blowout to Mississippi State by the score of 37-7. We had not been playing as a team. "And we had freshmen going in who didn't have a lot of experience".

The first test of Auburn's proverbial hammer comes at Red Stick.
