Date:

Auburn redshirt sophomore WR Darius Slayton caught four passes for 146 yards and a touchcdown in a 52-20 route of Arkansas on Saturday.

The 146 yards for Slayton (6'2/191) almost equal his season total of 156 coming into the game. Needless to say, this was a pleasant surprise for the Tigers. QB Jarrett Stidham found him for a 62-yard strike in the third quarter to give Auburn a 38-6 lead. We'll see if he's a part of the offense again in two weeks against Texas A&M.
Oct 21 - 11:26 PM

Auburn sophomore RB Kamryn Pettway (heel) ran for three touchdowns and 90 yards on just 11 carries in a 52-20 shellacking of Arkansas on Saturday.

Talk about making the most of your carries. Pettway was dominant in his time in the Auburn backfield, and he and the rest of the Tigers were able to run all over the Razorbacks for 345 yards. With all due respect to Kerryon Johnson, this is the best back in the Auburn system. A date with Texas A&M is next for Auburn in two weeks.

Auburn redshirt sophomore G Mike Horton (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's game against Arkansas.

Horton did not travel with the team in Saturday's loss to LSU, but he's practiced all week according to Tigers HC Gus Malzahn. If Horton is unable to go, you should expect to see senior Austin Golson take his spot next to center against the Razorbacks.

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn said that redshirt sophomore RB Kamryn Pettway (heel) is "close to 100-percent."

Pettway was limited to just four carries in Saturday's come-from-ahead loss to LSU -- Auburn was hoping to get him at least 10 -- but Malzahn said after the contest that he isn't that far off from full health. A year after crushing it to the tune of 1,224 yards and seven touchdowns, Pettway has managed just 215 yards (3.3 YPC) and three scores in four games. The redshirt sophomore has missed three contests this year, one due to a season-opening suspension, two more due to his foot injury. Kerryon Johnson, on the other hand, has been fantastic when healthy and we like him to continue to act as Auburn's lead back regardless of Pettway's status.

Auburn redshirt senior S Tray Matthews (hamstring) is questionable for Saturday's game against Arkansas.

Matthews (6'0/196) sat out the second half of Saturday's loss to LSU after injuring the hamstring. Daniel Thomas and Nick Ruffin worked in relief of the redshirt senior this past weekend and would do so again against Akransas if Matthews can't play. Prior to the injury, he had recorded 26 tackles and an interception.

Auburn senior LB Tre' Williams (arm) is questionable for Saturday's game against Arkansas.

Williams (6'2/240) has missed three of the last four games due to an arm injury sustained in September. His availability for Saturday's contest will depend on his progress over the remainder of the week. Tigers HC Gus Malzahn indicated that the senior linebacker could potentially practice on Tuesday. Freshman LB K.J. Britt would be in line for an expanded workload if Williams can't play against the Razorbacks.

Auburn dismissed sophomore WR Kyle Davis for an unspecified rules violation.

Davis didn’t practice last week and he also didn't travel with the team to Saturday's loss at LSU. He was previously suspended for the season opener against Georgia Southern. In between those two games, Davis posted seven receptions for 210 yards. Last year, as a true freshman, he had 12 catches for 248 yards and two touchdowns. The 6-foot-2, 224-pounder was a top-100 overall recruit and a top-10 receiver recruit in the 2016 cycle. He came to Auburn with considerable hype, but Davis spent much of his truncated Tigers' career in Gus Malzahn's doghouse.
Oct 17 - 4:05 PM

Auburn redshirt sophomore QB Jarrett Stidham revealed he is not allowed to check out of plays at the line of scrimmage.

"I'm just doing what I'm told to do and I'm trying to execute at a high level," Stidham said after losing to LSU despite leading by 20 points. Not having that type of freedom is common at the college level, and it likely speaks to Auburn's scheme more than Stidham as an individual. Auburn's loss can partially be attributed to LSU's late defensive shifts, including adding more defenders to the box.

Auburn senior RB Kerryon Johnson rushed for 156 yards and a touchdowns on 31 carries in Saturday's 27-23 loss to LSU.

Johnson (6'5/195) has missed two contests due to a hamstring injury this season, but in his five healthy games, he has surpassed 100 yards rushing four times. The senior is now up to 13 touchdowns scored for the campaign. He's played brilliantly when health has allowed him this year.
Oct 14 - 7:22 PM

Auburn redshirt sophomore QB Jarrett Stidham completed 9-of-26 passes for 165 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 27-23 loss to LSU.

Stidham and crew bolted out for 17 points in the first quarter and held a 23-14 lead at the half, but LSU's defense came out in ferocious fashion for the final two quarters. The redshirt sophomore would manage just six yards passing after the break in what finished as a scoreless second half by Auburn. The Tigers looked like they were set to embark on a legitimate run through conference play, but they'll have to recalibrate, now. Arkansas shows next on Auburn's schedule.
Oct 14 - 7:12 PM

Auburn redshirt sophomore WR Kyle Davis (foot) will not play in Saturday's game against LSU.

Davis has been dealing with a nagging foot injury throughout the season. He has yet to surpass 65 yards receiving in a game this year and his loss will mostly count as a depth blow for the Tigers.
Oct 14 - 3:54 PM

Auburn redshirt sophomore RB Kamryn Pettway (heel) is dressed for Saturday's game against LSU.

Pettway has missed two of the last three games with the injury, including ast week's game against Ole Miss. Pettway has ceded primary ball-carrying duties to Kerryon Johnson, who's been outstanding in his absence.

Auburn redshirt sophomore G Mike Horton (ankle) did not travel with the team to Saturday's game against LSU.

Horton, a starter, aggravated an ankle injury in last week's 44-23 win over Ole Miss. Auburn will likely start senior Austin Golson in Horton's place at left guard.
Oct 14 - 2:58 PM

Auburn redshirt sophomore RB Kamryn Pettway (heel) doesn't have a timetable for when he'll return.

Pettway missed last week's game against Ole Miss, and it sounds like he won't be a go this Saturday against LSU. If the talented sophomore isn't able to play against the Tigers, it likely means a big carry total for fellow talented sophomore Kerryon Johnson.

Auburn is investigating if a part-time staffer took an exam for a player in 2015.

The player reportedly was not on the team at the time, but was returning to school to complete his degree. Tutors work with student-athletes frequently, so in this case one could have completed an exam for the player. Auburn states the claims are false.
