The Auburn Tigers are 2-0 coming off a bye and now face a very good Kansas State on the road Thursday night. The Tigers have played two complete games but must play its best if it hopes to escape Bill Snyder Family Stadium with a win.

The Good

104: Points scored by Auburn through its first two games. That’s an average of 52 points per game, good for fifth in the FBS. Auburn lost a few pieces from 2013, mainly running back and Heisman finalist Tre Mason and offensive lineman Greg Robinson, but head coach Gus Malzahn has plugged new pieces into his offense and not skipped beat.

1,088: Yards of total offense have been racked up by the offense. The Tigers are averaging 7.6 yards per play tough for any defense to stop. Throw in that yards per play average with the tempo at which the Tigers run plays and they’re virtually unstoppable.

100: Percent conversion rate in the red zone. When Auburn gets inside the 20, its a lock to come away with points. The Tigers have scored 10 touchdowns in 11 red zone possessions. Auburn will need to get points when it has opportunities if it plans to have a big season.

The Bad:

5: The number of sacks the Tigers have through its first two games. Auburn needs to improve its pass rush, and create more pressure on the quarterback to take a little pressure of the secondary. Moving Gabe Wright and Montravious Adams back inside should help.

11: The number of penalties Auburn has committed. Not an astronomical number, but Malzahn’s team has committed some penalties at key times that have either extended drives for opposing teams or killed drives for themselves.

50: The percentage Auburn opponents’ are converting on touchdowns in the red zone. Yeah, this is a little nitpicky, but you’d like to see that number drop to about 33 percent if you’re Ellis Johnson.
